i have some questions:

i don't understand what you mean for "virtual email hosting onany machine"

when an email is sent to user@... from outside world.. what is the returned
error message?

what linux distribution?

probably, you have some configuration mistmatch of your VmailSQL
installation or exim configuration on the smtp server.

 That's interesting but if what you say is true, virtual email hosting on
any machine simply wouldn't work.

 if the MX record says interpool.ca should handle the incoming mail for
wardlock.interpool.ca, and wardlock.interpool.ca is in the list of
local-host-names, that should be fine.

 Again... I must state that mail sent from the local internal LAN gets
delivered properly. But mail from the outside world doesn't.

 I upgraded to vmail 0.7. Cut and pasted all the SQL code just in case
there was a slight bug. Hasn't changed anything. I'm at a loss to explain!
