    Hello,
    This one got me,
    I had a domain on one server which I moved it to another server.
    now no emails go between two servers for this domain.

    I checked almost every where I could think of in old server to see if there is any record remaining for the domain, but nothing is there.

    not in named not in httpd.conf not in localdomains not in /var/named ...

    oh boy, this is a good one, any one knows any other file that might be keeping a record from the old domain?

    old server thinks domain is still a local domain, but how this stupid thinks so, I don't know :)

    Thanks for any possible Idea

    What do the mail logs say when you send mail to the domain on the other server from the original server? Is it actually delivering something locally or bouncing it? Have you checked /etc/userdomains as well? Is the original server still able to resolve the domain? (Have I asked enough questions here? Geez.)

    Do a traceroute to the domain and see which server the trace goes to. That's a good starting point. Could be your ISP holding incorrect dns info!?

    Run
    # /path/to/exim -bt -d5 account@example.com
    to find out where Exim is trying to send your messages. I'd run it on both servers.
