[Bug 2668] New: Feature request: Allow smtp_load_reserve to accept expansions

Bug ID: 2668
Summary: Feature request: Allow smtp_load_reserve to accept
Product: Exim
Version: 4.94
Hardware: x86
OS: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: bug
Priority: medium
Component: Networking

I want the value of smtp_load_reserve to depend upon whether the mail is coming
from a live human being in their mail client, or a remote daemon. i.e.
basically whether they're incoming as an authenticated user on port 587, or
unauthenticated on port 25.

So, I tried this:

smtp_load_reserve = ${if def:authenticated_id {15.0}{9.0}}

This results in:

2020-11-03 14:05:44 Exim configuration error in line 212 of
fixed-point number expected for smtp_load_reserve

From that, I infer that smtp_load_reserve doesn't accept string expansions.

Hence, I would like to suggest that feature, in order to support this use-case.
