    Googling for: "smtp transport process returned non-zero status"

    yields the following:

    More information can be found on the hosts_avoid_tls option in section 38.8 of the Exim spec, located here:

    Note that if you attempt to implement this change, you should do so via the Exim configuration editor in WHM, otherwise your changes to exim.conf will be overwritten at some point. Alternately, you can make the changes directly to exim.conf just to test if it works, and if it does, add it via the Exim configuration editor.

    Or you might try following these steps:

    1. Log into WHM
    2. Click Tweak Settings under Server Configuration
    3. Find the checkbox for "Prevent the user "nobody" from sending out mail to remote addresses" and uncheck it.
    4. Click Save at page bottom

    Not sure if this was the problem, but would be my first guess... :)
