I have had tech working on this issue for days now but with no resolution. If the client sends an email from his Yahoo account to [email protected], the message gets delivered but he also get an error message returned to his Yahoo account. He were recently moved to his own cpanel server. He didn't experience the same problems when he were on another shared cpanel server. Here is the error message returned:

From: "Mail Delivery System" <[email protected]> | This is spam | Add to Address Book
To: [email protected]
Subject: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender
Date: Wed, 24 Sep 2003 09:02:44 -0500

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

[email protected]
(ultimately generated from [email protected])
remote host address is the local host: retry timeout exceeded

Reverse DNS has already been enabled for the server IP. He is set up namebased. Hope that someone here knows why this is happening.
