comment Exim4 configuration to use several external ip for mail sending
You are just digging yourself deeper into the hole if you try to evade their policy restrictions. See what you can do to simply send less email into Gmail, or get a proper agreement with them to have you exempted from the restriction.

comment Issue with Bash Script On FreeBSD
As an aside, collecting the output from find into a variable only to print the value of that variable is rather pointless. Just run the find command after the headers and have it print its output into the report. Somewhat similarly, grep 'interactive/pam' /var/log/auth.log avoids a completely useless cat and drops the (here) redundant -E flag.

I would add head -n 2 /var/log/auth.log; tail -n 2 /var/log/auth.log to get an idea of what's in the log file at the time the script runs.

The parentheses around (true) are useless.

comment Should I be adding aliases to /etc/profile instead of /etc/basrhc?
You should be using shell functions, not aliases. Aliases are less featureful, more brittle, and offer no advantages over shell functions.

comment postfix/procmail - preventing duplicate email in procmailrc
That's just a workaround. The real solution is to handle transport in transport. See porkmail.org/era/procmail/mini-faq.html#virtdom

comment Procmail: Inject sender address into the message body
If you want the sender's email terminus and nothing else (i.e. just parsley@graceland.example.net pro Elvis (the King) Parsley <parsley@graceland.example.net>), remember also the slightly tricky formail -rtzxTo: which generates a reply message's headers, then extracts the To: address from them. (The -t option creates a preference for e.g. the Reply-To: address which may or may not be what you want. Both -r and -rt are decidedly more complex than just extracting the value of From:.)
