Mailscanner 3.26
Exim 3.35

just back from my hols looking at my mailscanner box.
used eximstats to look at this mornings exim logs and found this...

List of errors

    1 0010295 at ABERTAY.AC.UK: retry timeout exceeded

    1 0010295 at abertay.ac.uk: retry timeout exceeded

    1 0010314 at TAY.AC.UK: retry timeout exceeded

    1 0010314 at tay.ac.uk: retry timeout exceeded

    1 0010331 at abertay.ac.uk: retry timeout exceeded


These are all valid addresses which mailscanner should pickup scan then pass
onto our exchange box
I also found this which is disturbing...

        This message was created automatically by mail delivery software

        A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
        recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es)

        w.robb at abertay.ac.uk
                remote host address is the local host: retry timeout

This is an address that should have been passed to exchange server.
