    Hello Everyone,

    I have a cron job set up in my account which is set to receive notification on
    The user name of my cPanel is mydomain and is the primary domain registered to this hosting.

    However, currently mydomain is not hosted on this cPanel and also it has a different Mail service attached to it.

    When the cron job executes it sends an email to, however this mail is not delivered to me.

    I checked WHM and found that the email is queued. with the message as below:

      cwd=/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot 4 args: /usr/sbin/exim -v -M 1Y8o6n-0001uU-4j
    delivering 1Y8o6n-0001uU-4j
      == [email][/email] R=virtual_aliases defer (-17): error in redirect data: missing or malformed local part (expected word or "<") in "fail: No Such User Here"
    I have this email active which is hosted on a third party email server.

    It seems that the cron utility is only looking for this domain within my cPanel account.. because when I try a gmail account I get the notification :/

    Any help will be appreciated as I need all the notification to be sent to

    I have tried different email for mydomain and none was delivered.. And in WHM its always queued.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Hello :)

    Please browse to:

    "cPanel --> Mail --> MX Entry"

    Configure the email routing to "Remote Mail Exchanger" for this domain name and let us know if the issue persists.

    Thank you.
