comment Adding Additional RAID Array to Ubuntu 11.10 x64 Server
under the above circumstances yes. Your sites would be on a Logical Volume. After adding the new array, you would just extend the volume to include the new array. You can them remove the old array (if you wanted) by removing that physical volume from the logical volume. LVM will migrate the data in the background without affecting the website. There will of course be some performance degradation though.

comment Trace a process on a Linux box
this is a great idea that I never thought of. perhaps a symlink to /dev/random would work if pureftpd follows symlinks. Then it will be held indefinitely. You would of course need to kill the process fairly quickly or you might run out of memory.

comment Does using a 'foreign' domain as email sender reduce email reputation?
yes, that is correct. I do not believe it would stop it from being marked as spam though it should decrease the chances of it being marked as spam.

comment Email won't send
your server doesn't have to be in the blacklist... another server in the same block being blacklisted is enough to block you. This holds even if the other server has nothing to do with you. The fact that they are both on the same block is enough...

comment EMail is not sending
hotmail can and will block servers / reject emails for various reasons. The the easiest way to find out why (to resolve it) is to look at the logs. check your php ini (usually in /etc/php.ini) to find out how it is set to send emails. It can use the local sendmail binary (which will link to exim if that's the local default mta) or a remote smtp smarthost. If the return address from the emails you sent come back to you. You could just wait until it bounces, but that could be as much as a few days...

comment EMail is not sending
I have no experience with WHMCS but check how email sending is configured. Sounds like it is using another SMTP server (perhaps its own?). Another thing you can do is to check the headers of the email. This will tell you each hop the email took. The first entry will tell you where it originated. This should help you pinpoint the originating server.

in that case, are you sure it got sent (and via exim) in the first place. If they are not mentioned at ll in exim, it is highly unlikely that it got to exim in the first place.
