Exim and invalid ‘EHLO’ chars

We had some mac users complaining that they couldn’t send mail via our exim smtp server. Exim logged stuff like ‘

rejected EHLO from []: syntactically invalid argument(s): test\.no

To work around telling the end user to use an other email client, or tell Apple to fix their mail client I ended up using the directive

helo_allow_chars = '\'

in exim.conf instead.

    I have noticed you don’t monetize cosmicb.no, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional cash every month with new
    monetization method. This is the best adsense alternative
    for any type of website (they approve all sites),
    for more info simply search in gooogle: murgrabia’s tools
