    WHM 10.6.0 cPanel 10.6.0-R147
    Fedora i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    Email appears to have stopped working over the weekend. Could someone please suggest where I should start looking for the cause/solution to this problem please?

    Mail sent *from* a cpanel email account to external disappear with no trace in maillogs.
    Mail sent *to* a cpanel email account bounces back with relay-not-perm'd

    Now, I understand relay usage blocking etc, but cannot see why cpanel's email service has worked fine until a few days ago.
    I do not believe that anything has been changed on the server since it has been proven to work.
    What should I be looking for? I am not very happy about just going into 'nix and fixing it because i dont want to mess up cpanel.

    please try to send mail to the cpanel account you are having problem

    then check

    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog

    it will give you some idea...

    Aby,
    I get the following;

    2005-10-10 10:01:03 failed to open /etc/localdomains for linear search: No such file or directory

    This makes little sense to me!
    Thnx
