IPv6 issues with exim and SMTPAUTH_RESTRICT/CC_ALLOW_SMTPAUTH [Fixed in v13.04]

We have identified an issue with exim rejecting what are valid IPv6 representations in the generated /etc/exim.smtpauth file. This problem manifests with errors in /var/log/exim_paniclog (on cPanel) as:

2019-07-18 08:00:22 Internal error: invalid IPv6 address "2001:470:1f0b:a9:9dc3:6ed8:e840::/106" passed to host_aton()

This innocuous error actual causes exim to defer (error 421) all email originating from IPv6 sources. This prevents its delivery inbound.

While we look into mitigating the issue exim has with the generated IPv6 CIDRs we would suggest disabling  SMTPAUTH_RESTRICT/CC_ALLOW_SMTPAUTH and removing the exim.conf line used to refer to it (see csf docs).

This issue has now been fixed in csf v13.04.

Control Panel Support

After the fun and panic in the last few days regarding the changes in the control panel landscape, we wanted to provide some information on what we are doing to reassure our customers regarding our development plans for our products.

We are currently working on integration and support of csf, cxs and osm on several control panels including:

  • Directadmin:
    csf is already available and supported
    cxs is already available but not yet supported
    osm is in development
  • InterWorx:
    csf and cxs are both in development and we hope to have versions of both available soon

We will also look into MailScanner support on DirectAdmin with our Front-End (MSFE).

Other control panels may follow, but we don’t have them on our roadmap yet.

We do not yet have timescales, but the work is currently active.
