The Exim FAQ

Contents   Previous  


As well as being hyperlinked from the HTML version of this document, each sample configuration is also available as a file in the config.samples directory, which can be independently downloaded.

Samples whose names are of the form Cnnn are Exim configurations; those with names of the form Fnnn are filter file fragments. There are gaps in the numbers because I have omitted the samples that have not been converted for Exim 4.

C002:   ``Although exim not intended for use in UUCP environment (it doesn't know anything about bang!path addresses), I'm successfully using it for delivering mail to UUCP clients.''

C006:   ``This is how I have configured a PP-inspired vacationnote, there is (was?) such a feature in PP. The user makes a file tripnote in his/her home directory, the message is passed to the sender once with a short leading text.''

C022:   ``This is the Exim configuration file of a machine which delivers mail to several local domains where the mail is delivered locally, several hairy domains, handled as described below, and a half-virtual domain, which is first processed by its special alias file, then processed as other local domains (including the processing by the global alias file).''

C037:   An elegant way of using ETRN, which does immediate delivery if the host is online, but saves mail in a BSMTP file after some time on the queue. ETRN then re-injects the mail.

F001:   ``I thought that the rest of the list may be interested in reviewing our filter as a starting point for their own system message filter.''

F002:   ``... program which refused mail from unknown addresses until they mailed me promising not to spam me ... since I'd already thought through how to do it in Exim, and knew it'd be slightly easier than falling out of bed, I went ahead and did it.''

F003:   ``Here's four checks installed in our system wide filter that knock out a lot of otherwise hard to detect rubbish.''

F004:   ``This is an Exim filter snippet to change locally-generated Message-Id: and Resent-Message-Id: headers to world-unique values.''
