comment How to generate total size of files from each unique source in bash
Does it absolutely have to be bash, or could it be perl?

comment Email generated with Python stuck in mailq, times out (Debian)
Well, I was hoping for the exim configuration for outgoing email.

comment Email generated with Python stuck in mailq, times out (Debian)
Since the problem is with sending mail, the ones regarding sending mail would be interesting. Also, since your ISP informed you that you should be using port 587/465 instead of port 25, the default exim configuration is highly unlikely to work for you, since it defaults to using the standard SMTP port for outgoing mail.

comment Email generated with Python stuck in mailq, times out (Debian)
Your listener options are also irrelevant. The issue occurs when exim is sending the email out to gmail, not when exim is receiving it from your perl script. You can't expect people here to go looking for a default config that might or might not match your default. (Also, why have you set the return address to <>? That should only be used for bounce messages!)

comment Email generated with Python stuck in mailq, times out (Debian)
The python script is irrelevant; this would happen regardless of how the email was generated. The important thing here would be to know how exim is configured.

@sis The firewall does not have to be on your server; it could be your provider, your router, or some other external entity.

comment What is the difference between kill , pkill and killall
...unless you're on Solaris, in which case killall will kill all processes you have the right to kill, so that if you're root, you're effectively rebooting the server.

I've used it for exactly this purpose, and impressed some coworkers with the results :-)

comment Redirecting bash loop output to variable specific files
Welcome to Server Fault! I am voting to move this question to Unix & Linux because it is asking about how to use an application or write a script, not how to manage the system. This does not mean that the question is bad, but I believe it is a better fit for the other site.

If you hover over the downvote button, you will see the standard reason for downvotes. There is no requirement to post any additional comments, though it's generally encouraged.

comment DNS Zone A record for domain
@kmwil If the domain owners don't want the apex domain to be browsable, there's no reason to add it. If they do add it, they also need to keep webserver config uptodate, and there'll be an extra record to keep updated. So if they don't need the record, why spend the time to set it up and keeping it up to date? But there's no technical reason in terms of the domain being unusable or anything. (Note that you must not use a CNAME for the apex record, because that will break stuff, but an A record is fine.)

comment DNS Zone A record for domain
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about DNS as a concept, not about unix/linux implementation

comment Operation not permitted. For root user?
There is nothing at all in the question to indicate that it's about MacOSX. Also, it was posted more than a year before El Capitan was released.

Upvoted, not just for the solution but for the first two sentences.

comment Reordering a file, based on a second file
I just want to say that I'm voting to move this question to Unix/Linux, as it's more about programming/scripting than about actual systems administrations. There are a lot of very knowledgeable people there and you may get some other interesting approaches in addition to the one you've already gotten.

comment How to force TCP packets to use a specific NIC
@Splash I'm not sure I understand your question there. The routing table has to be correctly configured in order for the connection to be established to begin with, otherwise the TCP handshake will fail.

comment How to force TCP packets to use a specific NIC
I've voted to move this question to Unix & Linux since it's more about how unix networking works than about systems administration.

To start with, you do your own homework.
