    I don't get mail from my vps.eq2.mydomain.nl

    I set all my mail server contact
    root mail :my@domainname.nl
    nobody's mail: my@domainname.nl
    cpanel's mail: my@domainname.nl

    I set the /root/.forward to my@domainname.nl and I get the mail
    echo "test" | mail -s "test" root@localhost

    I saw a other thread and follwed this.
    Code:
    root@vps [/etc]# cat /etc/localaliases
    cpanel: host@mydomain.nl
    nobody: host@mydomain.nl
    root: host@mydomain.nl
    Code:
    root@vps [/etc]# cat /var/cpanel/userhomes/cpanel/.forward
    host@mydomain.nl[/QUOTE]
    [CODE]root@vps [/etc]# cat /root/.forward
    host@mydomain.nl
    Now the strange outcome the .com the host@mydomain.com is only set in basic server setting
    Enter one or more cellular phone or pager email addresses to message via email in case a problem arises with this server
    Code:
    root@vps [/etc]# grep host@mydomain.nl /etc/valiases/*
    /etc/valiases/mydomain.nl:host@mydomain.nl: host@mydomain.com
    Code:
    root@vps [/etc]# grep host@mydomain.nl /etc/vfilters/*
    Nothing
    Code:
    root@vps [/etc]# cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
    ::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
    84.22.97.91 vps.eq2.mydomain.nl vps
    Code:
    root@vps [/etc]# cat /etc/mail_reverse_dns
    xx.xx.xx.91: vps.eq2.mydomain.nl
    Code:
    root@vps [/etc]# exim -bt root@localhost
    host@mydomain.nl
    <-- host@mydomain.nl
    <-- root@localhost
    router = virtual_user, transport = virtual_userdelivery
    host@mydomain.com
    <-- host@mydomain.nl
    <-- host@mydomain.nl
    <-- root@localhost
    router = lookuphost, transport = remote_smtp
    host mail.mydomain.com [xxx.xx.xxx.xx] MX=10
    regards

    Have you checked /var/log/exim_mainlog to see if the email has been sent out, or if it's sending out to an alternate address?

    Thank you.

    Please check /etc/remotedomains to see if the hostname or domain name associated with it is added to this file.

    Thank you.

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? It will be easier to troubleshoot the issue by reviewing the actual configuration you have setup your system. Please post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
