    Hi,
    Exim is not receieving emails but it is sending. Apparently, I am getting the following in the logs:

    2007-05-02 02:45:05 DNS list lookup defer (probably timeout) for 144.152.101.82.relays.ordb.org: assumed not in list


    etc

    I am trying to remove all th rbl lists from /etc/exim.conf but I gave up as exim.conf is locked.

    What shall I do ? Please help.

    thanks.

    To exit exim.com you need to use the editor inside whm.

    Think Jay meant "to edit exim". He's right, because if you edit exim.conf directly in shell it will be overwritten by cpanel on your next update. You need to use WHM to edit exim settings so that they will be applied after an update.

    As an aside, you might not have to remove them all. "144.152.101.82.relays.ordb.org" - why do you have the IP address associated with the relays reference? Remove the relays pointer and you'll probably be okay. Relays was closed down at the beginning of the year.

    hi,

    remove ordb.org they stopped with there service a little while back .Exim conf is best edited through the whm interface (Exim configuration editor) because otherwise CPanel updates could overwrite exim.conf
