    exim will try and deliver locally if the domain is set up on the server so to get the email to send to the external server you will need to remove the domain from /etc/localdomains and add it to /etc/remotedomains

    I have a similar if not same question... http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=34312

    Addition question about your last post... I have a file /etc/remotedomains,v which has the following info...

    head ;
    access;
    symbols;
    locks; strict;
    comment @# @;



    desc
    @@


    Should I create a new file and format it the same as the /etc/localdomains file which is just one domain name per line and nothing else?

    Thank you,

    Yes... /etc/remotedomains,v seems to be something of a version log.

    Create a /etc/remotedomains, if you don't have it already, as you said.
