Dear all,

I'm trying to customize the bounce messages in order to avoid the
subject "Mail delivery failed"
(for an unknown reason, probably a bug, my ISP smtp.free.fr simply
discard all these mails without any notification).

For this purpose, as mentioned in Exim4 specifications, I've put:
bounce_message_file = /etc/exim4/bouncemessage in the main section

I created the corresponding file /etc/exim4/bouncemessage:

Subject: trial bouncemail
  This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

  The following address(es) failed:
  The following text was generated during the delivery attempt(s):
  ------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------
  ------ The body of the message is $message_size characters long; only
the first
  ------ $return_size_limit or so are included here.

No error with update-exim4.conf, but absolutely no change !
No error in the /var/log/exim4/ section...

Any idea ?

My config : Exim4 in Debian Etch.

Thanks in advance,
