    An account on the box is attempting to use php's mail() function to send mail; no problems there. Interesingly though - the mail is never delievered, no errors or anything. The function will allow mail to go to another account on the same box, so we know it's working. It will also deliver to a hotmail account, nowhere else... (which is really odd...) I'm guessing that somewhere I need to allow relaying for local IP's and domains - but I don't know where....

    Any pointers or directions to previous threads would be most appreciated!

    Thank you for your time.

    Sorry I cannot be of much help, but I have heard of this problem before.

    A friend has a server with the same problem - he is also trying to find out how to fix it.

    relay hosts

    In /etc/exim.conf host_accept_relay probably already has localhost setup to allow relay. In /etc/hosts do you have a local host entry?
    If you are using a diffrent server for httpd than your are for smtp then you will need to add the other domain into the relay_domains list. This is also in /etc/exim.conf

    If you are just having problems sending mail for that user... probably apache or nobody..
    su &above user&
    exim -bt -d2 test@domainname.net

    Hope this helps;
