I recently installed a new version of exim
$ cygcheck -c exim
Cygwin Package Information
Package Version Status
exim 4.24-1 OK
and now I'm getting errors like:
2003-10-14 14:20:40 SMTP protocol violation: synchronization error
(input sent without waiting for greeting): rejected connection from
I read on the Exim lists that this is to stop spammers from spamming.
But there isn't any spamming going on here! I'm just trying to receive
my "publishing kit" from Craigslist so I can sell my car. I doubt that
Craigslist is spamming me.
I tried turning off smtp_enforce_sync and got Craiglist to resend the
message but now I get nothing!
