    Go on, have a guess
    The first thing to do is to check the exim logs when you send in an email to one of the effected domains and watch for messages/errors:

    Linux:
    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog

    FreeBSD:
    tail -f /var/log/exim/mainlog

    If you don't see any lines in the exim mainlog when you send in an email related to those domains, then it's most likely a DNS problem (check them at dnsreport.com).

    One obvious thing to check is that the domains are listed in /etc/localdomains

    Why Cpanel use different log file location on Linux and FreeBSD ?

    It will be nice if Cpanel use same location for log files and DNS entry on FreeBSD.

    rojo, try

    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog

    While whatching, send a mail and see if the email shows up in exim log, if yes, check if any error.

    If the email don't show up in log, it can be problem with MX record not pointing to this server, if you have same account on the server from which you send email, it will get delivered local. So try sending a mail from service like yahoo for testing.
