    Go on, have a guess
    Do you have a DNS entry for the hostname of your server?

    Do you have an rDNS entry for your servers main IP address?

    Yup, says all my IP addresses are private.

    Though I have contacted Server Matrix about this and they said dnsreport.com is wrong with their current records of IP addresses since the IPs I have for my server are in a newer block/range of IP addresses. They said they have been in touch with dnsreport.com with this problem.

    So I'm ignoring dnsreport.com in my quest to try and fix this problem.

    They're not going to get anywhere by contacting dnsreport. All they're doing is querying the database. The same database, I would guess, that the other mailservers are going to be querying. Therein lies your problem.

    Have you guys edited the exim config file ??
    Don't remember the lines but if you change them (has to do with unrotable domains)
    to an domain that does not work you get this error.

    I did when trying to get "nobody@host.domain.com" issue solved.
