your quoting is erratic. It is very hard to read your message. Please
get acquainted with the customs on e-mail lists.

I have severely edited down your message to make my answer at least
marginally readable.

You didn't write that.

You didn't write that as well.

Neither did you write this.

That is good news. Issue solved?

Again, you didn't write that.

Please get acquainted with the tools you're using on the public
Internet. If you don't know how E-Mail works, you're going to be
abused, and you don't have the knowledge to prevent that. At your
current level of knowledge, please consider to refrain from running an
SMTP server on the Internet.

That configuration snippet is not a script. And bash never sees it.
