    I've been getting a message in /var/log/exim_rejectlog for the last few days about the same message:

    I've also been getting a message in /var/log/messages that seems to be related:

    If I look at the mail queue in WHM, I don't see anything. But this e-mail seems to be stuck in between being delivered or being rejected.

    What can I do about this?

    Nothing much until the remote DNS becomes available. So long as your DNS resolution is working OK, then it's a fault at the other end of the line.

    I checked it at dnsstuff.com, here's the result:

    If/when that DNS comes back to life, this e-mail will be delivered? Is there any way to just kill it? The message, I mean, not the DNS.

    It will eventually be delivered if it can - the queuing system in exim runs (by default) once an hour and tries on a sliding hour scale for 4 days to deliver such emails. I'd suggest just leaving it there. If you really want to delete it, you can do so through WHM > Manage Mail Queue.

    When I take a look at "Manage Mail Queue" in WHM, it says there are no messages in the queue. However, I'm still getting these error messages in /var/log/messages and /var/log/exim_rejectlog.
