Is there an easy way in exim to set a prefix going to one account (so, eg
foo-* goes to my inbox). Currently I'm adding them one at a time in

Also, is there a way to set it up so if someone emails a certain user, their
IP gets auto banned connecting to the SMTP server. The idea would be to set
mines that would stop a routine that iterated through possible emailids for
spam delivery. Denying a connection is cheaper than having to process
thousands of SMTP requests. Another method of accomplishing is cool, too.



1. What is this?: /USR/SBIN/CRON[492]: (mail) CMD ( if [ -x /usr/sbin/exim ]; then /usr/sbin/exim -q >/dev/null 2>&1; fi)

On my Debian 2.2 system the system does an operation every 15 minutes.
On xconsole it looks like that:

What is this, and how can I stop the system from doing that, or change the
interval time?
