    Here's the message I get when I try to send email to dj@thoughtsfromparis.com from an outside gmail.com account. Not sure what I need to change in WHM/cPanel. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your mail server does not accept connections:
    Code:
    root@host1 [~]# telnet thoughtsfromparis.com 25
    Trying 208.94.37.13...
    telnet: connect to address 208.94.37.13: Connection refused
    
    Do you have Exim running in the server?

    It seems your email server is working fine now. I can telnet to port 25.

    Are you still facing any difficulty?

    Cheers!!!

    Okay, the outside email sends are now going into Horde (via cPanel), so that's good!

    Now, the only problem is they're supposed to be forwarded to delfinparis@gmail.com and that's not happening. I just traced the forward via cPanel and got all green lights. It should be working.

    Any idea why it won't forward out from the server? Thanks!

    Have you checked the exim log?

    Paste the output here.

    Cheers!!!
