Re: exim (was smail) problem

In article <SGbX1.306$zm6.255@newsfeed.slurp.net> you write:

>Problem is that exim doesn't know that
>email@myisp.com is "user" here.  Had to set that up for fetchmail, and it
>works great.  But when I send mail, my ISP thinks I'm unauthorized
>(obviously, I am) and kicks my mail back.  How do I get exim to rewrite my
>header from user@myisp.com to email@myisp.com?  Can I just get exim to read

Let me check I've understood the problem correctly; your ISP sends you
email at the address <email@myisp.com>, and only accepts email from the
user <email@myisp.com>, but you login as "user" ?

If so, try this at the bottom of your exim.conf:

user@myisp.com  "${if match {$header_from:}{user@myisp.com} {email@myisp.com} fail }" EFf

This is off the top of my head, but should be in the right direction.
