Bug#932651: logwatch: EXIM "AUTH command used when not advertised" spams logwatch output, upstream fix available

Richard Scherping
Package: logwatch
Version: 7.5.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the daily logwatch e-mails from my server are quite long due to a list of entries like this:

"Didn't Summarize: 2019-07-19 04:34:22 SMTP protocol error in "AUTH LOGIN" H=(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) [yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy] AUTH command used when not advertised"

I would expect this error to be summarized.
In fact, this has been implemented upstream already: https://sourceforge.net/p/logwatch/git/ci/0963070e1234065a3b08ff02173de12ec21fd67a/#diff-1

By replaing /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services/exim with the newest version from upstream https://sourceforge.net/p/logwatch/git/ci/master/tree/scripts/services/exim the problem is solved:

 --- SMTP Connection Issues
   AUTH command used when not advertised: 236 Time(s)

Please consider adding this change to the next official debian package version of logwatch.

Regards

Richard
