    I've got a domainA (hosted somewhere else) which is parked on DomainB on the server (Back up if DNS on first server fails)..

    All email directed to DomainA was going fine to the original server till few days ago (Cpanel5.3 3S)where I started recieving

    &Warning: message xxx delayed 24 hours & messages with the reason:

    Delay reason: lowest numbered MX record points to local host

    Any idea what that means or how to fix?

    domainA is *not* in the localdomains file...

    The problem is precisely that the MX record points to a local host but that host is not in the localdomains file, and Exim doesn't like that.

    Thanks for the reply.. That domain is not locally hosted. It's hosted somewhere else... It's only parked on a domain on the server..I can't send emails to that domain from the server any more.. Any fix for this?
