    Check the exim log if you have administrator access (root SSH) to the machine in question:

    Code:
    exigrep webmaster@mydomain.xx /var/log/exim_mainlog

    But if I use my brothers email account and sent to webmaster@mydomain.xx the email is directly forwarded to me.

    Strange, seems like it can't forward to the same email address that the author has.

    Are you trying to email from your gmail account to that email address and expecting it to then forward back to that same gmail account? If so, no, that will not work. It cannot work because it would create a looping condition.

    Yes I am.

    How can it be a looping condition? If I send from username@gmail.com to username@gmail.com it works, and it should be working with email forward.

    Strange, it worked with my other webhost (not using cpanel).

    Why would you send an email from your gmail to the other account and want that email to also deliver back to the gmail account? You already have a copy of the email at the gmail account because you sent it from there.

    It was just for testing if the forwarding worked.
