    One of my domain users says he can receive but cannot send email using Outlook or Eudora. He gets this message: Either "connection timed out (10060)" or "connection closed by foreign host (0)"

    Any suggestions to what I should do? Or is it my server's problem at all? I've restarted all mail services already with no effect.

    In WHM, check Service Manager -> exim on another port

    Remember to also open this port in your firewall :)

    The most likely cause is that the ISP is blocking port 25 outgoing. The effect of that would be to stop your user being able to send mail through your server. The ISP does this to prevent spammers operating via trojans from sending email through port 25.

    The fix is to use the ISP's outgoing mail server for all outgoing email (you can almost always still send "From:" your domain) or to provide an alternate SMTP port which isn't blocked, such as port 26.
