    Hello,

    I have a problem sending email to fl/yumi-m@t.vodafone.ne.jp from my server smtp.

    Here is the error message: Administrative prohibition

    Here is my server setting:

    WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.15.0-C18335
    CENTOS 4.5 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    Initially I was thinking that the email address was not valid. But it receives from other servers.

    What is the setting I can change to send to this email?

    Thanks.

    exim.conf setup was the reason

    Hello,

    This is self learned lesson.

    From my exim.conf I had this setup:

    /etc/exim.conf was having the following entry

    deny local_parts = ^.*[@%!/|] : ^\\.

    which was modified to

    deny local_parts = ^.*[@%!|] : ^\\.

    This fixed the problem of sending email to the said email address because of / was blocked and unacceptable email character for local.

    Thanks.
