Lightbulb Exim Help

Hiya all,

Using exim v4.x and CentOS 4/5 on a bunch of servers at our company. We're having a tough time fighting spam relaying and such.

I basically want any tips and tricks for these, and one specific question.

How can I force ALL email that is sent from our box (no matter what form) to be authenticated to the same method as pop3 before it is sent ?

We have about 100 boxes or so, so you can help me make the world of spam less dominate by helping me with this.

I really do appreciate it.

Have a great day!

exicyclog - Cycle exim's logfiles SYNOPSIS
eximcyclog DESCRIPTION
The exicyclog script can be used to cycle (rotate) mainlog and rejectlog files. This is not necessary if only syslog is being used. Some operating systems have their own standard mechanisms for log cycling, and these can be used instead of exicyclog if preferred. Each time exicyclog is run the file names get 'shuffled down' by one. If the main log file name is mainlog (the default) then when exicy- clog is run mainlog becomes mainlog.01, the previous mainlog.01 becomes mainlog.02 and so on, up to a limit which is set in the script, and which defaults to 10. Reject logs are handled similarly. If no mainlog file exists, the script does nothing. Files that 'drop off' the end are deleted. All files with numbers greater than 01 are compressed, using a compression command which is configured by the COMPRESS_COMMAND setting in Local/Makefile. It is usual to run "exicy- clog" daily from a root "crontab" entry of the form 1 0 * * * su exim -c /usr/exim/bin/exicyclog assuming you have used the name 'exim' for the Exim user. You can run exicyclog as root if you wish, but there is no need. BUGS
This manual page needs a major re-work. If somebody knows better groff than us and has more experience in writing manual pages, any patches would be greatly appreciated. SEE ALSO
