    Question Exim ACL issue.. Please help ..

    Well I am not actually a hosting provider but a client. I do have some technical knowledge about Exim, Sendmail etc and my host also co-operates with me so I thought of asking this question myself. My problem is with the RBL checks that my host's server performs even on authenticated SMTP connections. My ISP provides a IP to me which is being shared by many subscribers and gets blocked often. This causes a problem for me to use my mail client to send outgoing e-mail through my host's SMTP.

    Suppose my hosted domain is "". Now when I use my e-mail client and send an e-mail using my hosts SMTP server (which requires due authentication) and give return-path (envelope sender) as "[email protected]", the e-mail passes through nicely. But when I use some other return path like "[email protected]", I get a RBL block message after RCPT command. This should not happen as I am a paying member and I am correctly authenticating myself using the username & password of my hosted account.

    My host uses Exim 4.63 so I just wanted to know whether there is a way to modify Exim ACL so that it doesn't perform RBL checks for authenticating users.

    Please help..

    While this should work, it really depends on the rest of your ACL configuration.

    Under the ACL section ABOVE dnslists add:
    !hosts = +relay_hosts
    !authenticated = *

    !hosts = +relay_hosts
    !authenticated = *
    dnslists = : : :
