    Hey ,

    You will require to enable IPv6 on your networks to get it working from the looks of it if you are planning on using Ipv6.

    How will you enable IPv6 on the networks?



    Also what can you use to avoid requiring IPv6?

    Hey ,

    You can have it added from the network configuration if supported on your OS

    For Redhat , CentOS the command below can help you out

    system-config-network-tui

    Further disable IPv6 host lookups in exim by setting

    "dns_ipv4_lookup = *".
