    Emails are being sent locally only for whatever reason globally, any account

    I confirmed everything is ok in:

    localdomains (domains listed)
    named.conf
    resolv.conf
    domains' dns are fine, propagated days

    I reset exim to defaults, forced upgrade exim, cpanel (stable)

    I ran fix/reinstall for
    mailman
    fixnamed
    fixndc
    fixrndc
    fixbuggynamed
    fixetchosts
    disabled sender verify callout failed
    unlimited emails outgoing
    prevent user nobody is disabled

    I can dig a domain from command line to external, works fine otherwise.

    I can send locally only, but not external (remotely). I am very confused

    I was using APF firewall, I switched to CSF now. Same issue.


    EXIM mainlog:

    I've seen this with APF and am still looking for a solution. The errors you saw, though, are an after effect of the failure to send. You can clear that with commands like:

    exim_tidydb -t 1m /var/spool/exim retry
    and
    exim_tidydb -t 1m /var/spool/exim wait-remote_smtp


    but you will likely still get an error like this:

    ... failed: Connection refused


    and then it will return to the retry time errors you saw.

    On my system, I was able to restart apf and the issue went away for the short term. A long term fix has eluded me thus far.
