comment exim4 - Why is rate limiting outbound mail to a smarthost only working with acl_not_smtp?
@billw /usr/bin/mail runs the local sendmail program to deliver the mail rather than connecting over the network stack. In your case, exim4 is used as a dropin replacement for sendmail. The mail will be treated as a non-smtp deliviry. Rate limiting will need to be done using a non-smtp ACL.

comment Linux bridging for KVM
@tonioc I would expect the virtual server to respond to ARP requests. I have multiple bridge interface, but none of them are bridged to the external interface. Proxy ARP is required for them to be visible.

comment email sent from my server shows up as spam
Google does authorize all addresses with their ~all SPF policy. However, there are freemailer conditions in some spam checks which penalize failure to use Googles servers.
