    Hello, has two servers:

    #Server PHP - hosts php and handles apache/mysql requests.
    #Server 2 - handles mail and dns requests.

    Yesterday we moved mail from # server 2 to a new mail server, a cPanel one, all mailboxes are created, users can send and recieve email using webmail, mail clients, etc.

    But.. while trying to send mails using PHP authenticated from the #Server PHP/Apache/MySQL , we got this error from the mail servers:

    We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, 220 and/or bulk e-mail. SMTP -> FROM SERVER: SMTP -> FROM SERVER: SMTP -> ERROR: HELO not accepted from server: SMTP -> get_lines(): $data was "" SMTP -> get_lines(): $str is "
    This was working when mails were recieved/sent in Sendmail (an Ensim box), now with Exim 4.x on a cPanel box we got this issue.

    Already added IP address from #server php into all Exim whitelists, also added the IP to /etc/alwaysrely, but didn't help.

    Any ideas how to fix it?

    Im using RHE 5.2 on the mail server and latest Release build.

    Thank you.
