Sending mail using postfix on macosx

Yet again it’s a while since my last post here although I had the intention to post more nerdstuff over here. But it just looks like I didn’t had enough news to post here. This one won’t be big either. It’s ratter a thank you.

More exim fun

I wrote before about some exim fun but there was a little problem out there. Using exim4 -bt adres@mydomain worked fine but when trying it out in the real world, it failed. At line 675 (almost) in my configuration I removed the verify = recipient line and it worked fine. I just don’t know why. :-(


Using dot-forward on exim4

I’ve been mentioning my plans to change my email routing on my wiki but there was one missing feature on exim. I’m currently using the so called dotforward stuff from courier. Actually, the forward rules I’m using are pretty simple. I have a .forward to send the mail to another email adres and I have a .forward-default to prevent mails with a dash send out. Searching for the same system on the internet didn’t gave me any satisfying solutions. But reading the manual of exim gave me a ratter easy solution: the use of exim filters. Especially the filter part was pretty useful. This is my result:
# Exim filter
logfile $home/filter.log
if $local_part_suffix is ""
then
deliver myotheremail@someprovider.com.spam
save Maildir/
else
save Maildir/.test/
finish
endif

So everything without a local part gets sended to myotherprovider, exactly the way I wanted.

Just because of the quote

I was playing with freedos and used an image based on what I found on ubcd and they seem to use a nice utility called modboot.  It can be found http://www.nu2.nu/bootdisk/modboot/ and this post needs a little more cleanup :-)
