    We have two servers, an email server using cpanel, and a web server that uses postfix to send forms from websites located on the server. When I send a form that goes to one of our email accounts set up with cpanel, it takes hours to days to arrive, sometimes never arriving. If I send the same form to my personal email address at optonline.net, it gets there immediately. I have the ip address of our web server whitelisted. I am at a loss on what to try next. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :confused:

    Have you tried grepping /var/log/exim_mainlog for the Postfix's server IP?
    ie. "zgrep 127.0.0.1 /var/log/exim_mainlog*"

    Of course replace 127.0.0.1 with the actual postfix server IP.

    Does the postfix server have the domain names listed as a domain that is allowed to relay mail? Been a long time since I had something similar to what you are doing, but I know we had to create a relay statement (and put its settings in the master.cf files it was something like:

    Code:
    relay_domains = $mydestination domain1.com domain2.net domain3.org
    Then we also had to use postmap to write some files for postfix to use. It has just been too long, just wondering if you had your domains set in postifx for relaying.
