email bugThis server’s Exim is 100% correctly configured, however it regularly trapping into freaking (into the list of so-called anti-spam service).

The reason of hitting into spammers list appeared rather stupid.

Because I have specified forwarder from one of my domain, eg, into another domain, But lately email has been removed and generated bounceback to anyone who sent email into

So it was accepted by (since it’s valid but unused email address, which accepting messages to forward them), but was generated bounce back. Into faked address. Bounce back after accepting the message, which is not legal according to some lamers maintainers of freaking

Well, okay, perhaps I need to use cure for sclerosis manage my forwarders and not allow redirection/forwarding into bad address. But what if some another regular user (with less privileges than mine) on another account within my server (within an IP) will use broken forwarders?

What if someone blacklisted in target email (directly blacklisted or because of some strict rules or target server, like non-accepting of greek or chinese encoding) will send a message through my forwarder? Right, target server will produce a bounce back. Imagine, if I forwarding all messages from my domain into @gmail, but @gmail not accepting snder’s messages due to ANY reason and generate bounce-back. Right, I my IP will get into get into freaking Backscatterer list. Damn it.

I’m stopping using forwarders but would prefer if some lamers maintainers of freaking will stop their silly worthless lives.

No more email forwarders. Thanks to freaking

UPD. Ok, use internal forwarders (within your localhost), but ONLY if they do not generate any bounce backs(!!)

UPD 2: real EXIM log snipped which demostrates the problem. (@gmail produced bounce back due to suspicious incoming message due to low reputation of my IP)
