Hello,
Today I noticed several error messages like this in my EXIM log file when several users couldn´t send email messages and was wondering if they may be related

Hey there! I know this came up in your other thread as well, but is this message incoming to your server? If so, I did some more homework on this, and found that this is usually spam email where they don't send the proper "quit" messages to the mailserver. I wouldn't expect this to cause problems with sending messages out, though.

Thanks for replying.
The fact is that is issue is also ocurring with normal users trying to send emails using Outlook.
BTW I opened a ticket yesterday regarding this problem but it still unattended.
