    my main mail box (account@yuordomain)can't send mail and received mail,but another mail boxes (???@yuordomain) are fine

    if I sent mail to main mail box (account@yourdomain)(
    you will get


    Code:
    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).
    
    A message that you sent has not yet been delivered to one or more of its
    recipients after more than 24 hours on the queue on HOSTNAME.
    
    The message identifier is:     1968yd-0005R3-00
    The subject of the message is: test
    The date of the message is:    Thu, 17 Apr 2003 20:57:25 +0800
    
    The address to which the message has not yet been delivered is:
    
      account@HOSTNAME
        (generated from account@yourdomain)
        Delay reason: lowest numbered MX record points to local host
    
    No action is required on your part. Delivery attempts will continue for
    some time, and this warning may be repeated at intervals if the message
    remains undelivered. Eventually the mail delivery software will give up,
    and when that happens, the message will be returned to you.

    Is the domain in /etc/localdomains? Try /scripts/mailperm.

    Yeah,domain is in /etc/localdomains.

    That's why so strange .
    All of accounts' main mail boxes(account@domain)
    have this problem.
    But another mail boxes (??@domain) have no problem

    Nevermind.. I fixed this. Problem was that the reverse dns wasn't setup properly. So the server tried to deliever to admin@<reversednslookupdomainhere> and <reversednslookupdomainhere> was not a domain on my server... so to temporary fix it I added the domain to /etc/localdomains... perm fix would be to fix my reverse dns config though. ;)

    Contact your ISP... it's not something that is configured on the server. The Reverse DNS for your main/shared IP should be set to your server's hostname.
