Firewall in MTA mode not sending out mails - Discussions - Sophos Firewall - Sophos Community
It's still as issue! - Running SFOS 19.5
Running "perl replace_firewall_id.pl 15 1" (I could see in the SMTP logs that it used rule 15 - that rule is my deafault drop rule - it happened out of the blue.
Any news on that matter?
Do you have the default MTA Rule or not?
If you enable the MTA Rule, there will be a firewall rule generated. You can adjust this rule, but you should not delete it.
I deleted it a long time ago.
Today I switched SMTP between transparent and MTA, it recreated the rule as ID 1 and at the top, but did not fix the firewall-id in the SMTP, maybe that should be implemented?
It was kinda hard to fix, not knowing why emails got blocked, with the SMTP rule in place :-)

Any news regarding my question above?
Today I disabled the SMTP rule, thus enabled is right after (Not deleted) , SMTP mail flow was again broken. had to run the "perl replace_firewall_id.pl 15 1" again, cause the SMTP related to drop rul again. This is not good.
Any news on a solution?
Essentially you need this rule for the exim to have a valid rule to send out. You could keep the rule and limit it to your mail server. Does this work for you?
