Spamexperts (or other) mail / SPF failures

When using spamassisin in front of DirectAdmin, you see messages like:


2022-04-20 05:41:24 H=out7.antispamcloud.com [94.75.244.176] X=TLS1.2:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:128 CV=no F=<info@email.ibood.com> rejected RCPT <recipient@example.com>: SPF: 123.123.123.123 is not allowed to send mail from email.ibood.com: Please see http://www.open-spf.org/Why : Reason: mechanism

This is because you need to add spamexperts to the safe senders (relayhost), this can be done as following:

edit this file: /etc/virtual/esf_skip_hosts

delivery.antispamcloud.com
*.antispamcloud.com

(Afterwards restart spamassassin)
