I have done the Exim router setup as per the documentation at:


My router config viz. 101_exim4-config_mailman is as given below:

   driver = accept
   domains = +mm_domains
   require_files = MM_HOME/lists/$local_part/config.pck
   local_part_suffix = -bounces : -bounces+* : \
                       -confirm+* : -join : -leave : \
                       -owner : -request : -admin
   transport = mailman_transport

Still it does not work.

I get the following message in the Exim rejectlog:

2007-11-21 15:15:41 H=(mail.domain.tld) [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] F=<kapil at domain.tld> rejected RCPT <listname at list.domain.tld>: Unrouteable address

Thanks for the help :-)
