    When I try to send an email to one recipient, I get the following error:

    "Recipient cannot be verified...."

    My mail log says:
    I can send to other reciepients with no problem... any suggestions?

    Thanks

    The bounce message you just quoted says that that the one recipient's address is invalid ....

    The message is telling you that you cannot send email to that email account because it does not exist!

    I have this same problem. I host the website for domain.com, but someone else hosts the email. The email is set up right, as they get mail from everyone, except me. When I send mail, I get the error that the recipient can't be verified.
    Domain.com is not in the /etc/localdomains, but it is in /etc/remotedomains.
    I've forced exim update.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    Are you using your own server in /etc/resolv.conf and have a non-authoritative zone file for that domain on the server? If so, then the MX record might not be resolving correctly.

    Nothing was in the vfilter/domain file.
    But it turns out the domain got removed from the remotedomains file...not sure how, it might have been on a force update?
    It's working now though.
    Thanks.
