    Hi,

    I noticed a rather strange email problem on one server. Email is working ok, I can send and recieve emails fine. However I cannot send email to another email address hosted on the server. The message sends fine, however it is not recieved. I can't see anything which would be stopping local mail from being sent.

    Do you know what could be causing this?

    The only thing I have changed is I have added a Dictionary Attack ACL to Exim. I have tried removing this, and its still the same.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Chris.

    Well it looks like /etc/remotedomains doesnt exist, nano prompts to create a new file.

    The address is listed in /etc/localdomains

    Right after you send a message, locally, check /var/log/exim_mainlog. Any errors or clues?
