Incoming Email from certain senders is taking much longer than other emails?

    I am on the newest CENTOS 7.4 kvm, and cPanel v66.0.25 and noticed that my outgoing email is immediate, like within a second to the place I send it.
    When I respond, via Gmail or a few other free email providers like Yahoo! and very rarely another email on a different self hosted server, it will take about 30 seconds.

    However Best Buy (for example) needs to send me a confirmation code, or PayPal, etc, the email takes almost 20 minutes, sometimes even longer.

    I know the question has been asked, but I can't seem to find an answer specific to this situation.

    Thanks in advance.

    I disabled greylisting, and the emails are still taking 20 minutes from Best Buy, etc. I even tried re enabling and changing the rules of the greylisting, etc. Nothing has changed. Thanks though for the response. :)

    Hello,

    You may want to generate a test email from one of those remote servers, and then monitor /var/log/exim_mainlog for the message to see how it takes for Exim to accept it (and to see if there's anything related to the delay). EX:

    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Thank you.
