Hi Peter

Thanks for reply.

I kinda realised that just after mailing the list so i removed got rid of the error msg and exim starts up ok

(see new config below)
begin acl

# This access control list is used for every RCPT command in an incoming
# SMTP message. The tests are run in order until the address is either
# accepted or denied.

    accept domains = +local_domains : +relay_domains
    accept hosts   = +relay_hosts


..but with this config, no mails seem to be accepted. All I get is when
i tail exim_mainlog is

2004-11-12 10:33:45 unknown named domain list "+relay_domains"
2004-11-12 10:33:47 unknown named domain list "+relay_domains"
2004-11-12 10:33:48 unknown named domain list "+relay_domains"
2004-11-12 10:33:50 unknown named domain list "+relay_domains"

If i do a manual telnet to port 25 and try and send myself a mail I get,

root@artemis # telnet localhost 25
