After reading in my Exim book (page 1 to 10) i know where a lot of my
mails go they are bounced to "andi@film" which does not exist in
Internet (i hope). So my problem is still how to get the right Envelope
Sender which would be something like "grabne26@utanet.at" where utanet
is my dialin provider.
Now you know the most of my personal email-accounts so i would like to
do a complete "strip".
grabner-it.at is my own domain hostet at ISP "inode" where my mailboxes
are. There i have an SMTP.grabner-it.at which i can't use because they
do not relay my own mails (maybe because dialed in at UTA)
I think UTA "sometimes" !!!?? <thats strange dont like my mails but I
don't get a bounce!
Yes i want to use EXIM! (only for the case you ask for the sense)

So how to configure exim to do the right Sender?

BTW An other question.
Can somebody please tell me a tool to sync mbox-files between two

Thanks for each tipp.
