Problem with whitelists -- ignore previous mail. (sorry)

Tue Sep 7 16:11:07 UTC 2004

The below ive listed in /var/dcc/whitelist

I'll try moving it to /var/dcc/whiteclnt, do I need to reload DCCM when
modifying this file?

And the reason it gives for blocking the mail is as follows:

X-DCC-xmailer-Metrics: 1192; bulk Body=1 Fuz1=1

rejection message: 550 5.7.1 mail i87CeZwY022245 from rejected

So if im using a public DCC server does the stats graphs apply to how much
mail has been stopped on my mail server?

Are those lines in /var/dcc/whiteclnt?

Is that file writable by the dccm process, including not locked by an editor
such as `vi`?

Are there any complaints about the contents of /var/dcc/whiteclnt from dccm
in your system log?

What are the contents of /var/dcc/log files containing mail that was
rejected but should have been accepted?  Dccm always says why it doesn't
like a message in the log files it creates.

One way to debug a DCC client whitelist is to feed mail messages to `dccproc
-w whiteclnt -l /tmp -E -S ...`

Client-IDs are assigned by DCC server owners for their own DCC clients.
If your mail system handles more than 100,000 mail messages per day, then
you should have your own DCC server and assign your own client-IDs.
If your mail system handles fewer mail messages, you should probably use the
public DCC servers.

Please do not send HTML encoded messages to this mailing list.
I don't think much of sending both cleartext and HTML in any case, but
perhaps I'm a radical reactionary.
