    I'm trying to figure out why all mail is getting stuck in my mail queue. It won't it via SSH with sendmail -q -v or by delivery in WHM.

    I'm getting timeout errors when things are attempting to be delivered.

    LOG: MAIN
    cwd=/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot 4 args: /usr/sbin/exim -v -M 1b1Jdt-0003Sq-Qd

    == wwilliams@kalerealty.com R=dkim_lookuphost T=dkim_remote_smtp defer (110): Connection timed out

    Here's what happens when I try to remote to port 25

    root@srv1 [/var/spool/exim]# telnet alt1.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com 25
    Trying 64.233.186.26...
    telnet: connect to address 64.233.186.26: Connection timed out
    Trying 2800:3f0:4003:c00::1b...
    telnet: connect to address 2800:3f0:4003:c00::1b: Connection timed out

    I've done some searching online and here's what I've found.

    • Maybe CSF is blocking port 25? - Nope! I disabled CSF entirely and it still won't deliver the queue.
    • Maybe something else is blocking port 25 - not sure how to fix this.
    Any suggestions? I really appreciate the help. I'm asking my host if they're blocking port 25 for some reason.

    Thanks!
