Hello, I have a question for u dear cpanel\s GURU's!

I have 2 customers: aaa.com & bbb.com
Customer aaa.com has a hosting at cpanel and using a mai services at this server. all working fine!!!
Custromer bbb.com has a DNS at this server only, his mail server is in another country, all working fine, but when user aaa.com sends mail to bbb.com his mails rejected.
Question: WHY?
Answer: when user aaa.com sends mail to bbb.com, exim searching [email protected] at local machine, and when user is not found letter rejects.

Quesion: How to setup exim to work fine? Exim must not search domains at local machine!
Help, please I think it's actual question.
Thank U very much, my friends =)

You would need to remove it from the local domains and also add a remote domain entry.

Remove the remote MX domain from
/etc/localdomains

Then add the remote domain on its own line in here
/etc/remotedomains (create the file if it doesnt exist)

Those adjustments will prevent the local lookup of the remote domains mx.

cheers

If I'll remove domain from local domains, will it recreate automaticaly?
If so, thats bad :(

No, any domain updates or anything like that will not recreate the entry. That is part of the reason to remove it as well.
