Exim problem (failed to expand "interface" option for remote_smtp transport)

Hi.

This afternoon I have migrated my websites to Debian 11 + Hestia 1.4.11.

Everything works except for the mail. The following appears in the exim4 log:

[email protected] R = dnslookup T = remote_smtp defer (-1): failed to expand “interface” option for remote_smtp transport: failed to open /etc/exim4/domains/xxxxxxxxx.com/ip: Permission denied (euid = 109 egid = 116)

And the emails get stuck in the queue.

The have changed a lot with Exim: 4.94.x Probably there is still a bug with it…

Can confirm the issue. I think I know what the issue is. If you can please create bug report on Github

Okay.

Please check if it works

Found a second bug related to Exim and outgoing mail.

We will delay with the release of 1.4.12 so we can fix all the issues at once instead with 100 releases…
