    64.233.xx.xxx@hostname.server.com
    (generated from user@domain.com)
    unknown local-part "64.233.xx.xxx" in domain "hostname.server.com"

    Hello
    A user on one of our boxes is not able to receive emails from a client of theirs - the error they get is the one above.

    Anyone recognise it?
    Know how to fix?
    Thanks

    That user is using his own mail server - the IP address points to that mail server of his - so how do i add it to my server? His mx records point to that IP..

    assuming you are using exim.
    Remove his domain from /etc/localdomains

    and make sure the mx record points to his mail server.

    hopes that helps

    deaf leading the blind

    Forums become when useful when people work together to find the answer to a problem instead of just an answer. That means listening carefully to what the other person instead of simply waiting for your turn to blurt out your answer.

    This issue was articulated perfectly in the first post. Stating the obvious and insulting the humble asker is simply arrogant and does nothing for anybody. Not only that, this problem was still unresolved. Saying nothing would have been better than saying something hurtful.

    Now.... :)

    I was having this problem too, with some accounts that I (tried) to transfer from another Cpanel box. I looked at the perms for the working accounts and lo and behold mail was of the form user:mail and the problem chiles were root:mail.

    After looking at some other posts, I saw that there was a script called /scripts/mailperm. It fixed that problem as well as some other knuckleheaded things I managed to do.

    If that doesn;t resolve the issue, then please post back here.

    one more thing ... at least in my case ....
    the /etc/valiases/user file pointed to the wrong user.

    Maybe something to check as well.
