Galdorn mortar forking exim!

I updated to Lenny from Etch a week ago.

So I notices my server was chugging along a bunch yesterday.

Finally tracked it down. Exim's SMTP AUTH for outbound smarthost is now failing.

550 Sender verify failed

It took me 3 hours to figure out that this is because even though I'm authenticating to mailhop, they require me to provide a valid host in ehlo.

My server still reported itself as the domain name, which is hosted elsewhere.

I changed /etc/mailname to be the dyndns address and it worked, plus this magically changed the qualifying hostname to the fqdn of my host, rather than the 2LD.

So, it's all fixxored. yAy.

It is.

That's the curse of being a lifelong system integrator.
