    Hi All

    I have a server with cpanel last week abuse control contacted me because of spam email coming from my server, I checked the using Check an Open Relay and got the following message

    TEST FAILED, 250 OK

    my server is a standard one about 10 hosted domain no special configuration, closing the Open Relay should be an easy task, but I'm stuck for 1 week, I reset exim configuration to default with no success, says the default is closed, but not this one.

    Any Ideas where I should look o do?

    Thanks

    Normally, you cannot test using an anonymous relay tester because false positives can be reported using those. You'll need to find a non-anonymous test online to test it properly.
