    Im having a problem with a new server I setup with system messages, I have 3 other servers that works fine, I receive every night:

    From: Cron Daemon Cron <root@server> /scripts/upcp

    But in the new server I receive it bad:

    From: Mail Delivery System Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender

    The contact manager at whm is configured as the same as the other servers. Dont know why is refusing the message, please see the bounce below.

    My new server is called and all system messages should be sent to other address in other server called

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    The only difference I found in the servers is that in this one the smtp tweak setting is enable. This feature can be causing this????

    Thank you!

    The option for this is in WHM > Exim Configuration Editor and is called

    ** BL: Reject mail sent directly to addresses at the primary hostname from
    remote servers. [?]

    If you have this option checked then it will add the deny_message in exim.conf
    to not allow email to the hostname.

    I'm sorry to reply to an old thread but I'm having this problem. All mail is rejected when sent to user@server-hostname but I dont have this option enabled..

    Reject mail sent directly to addresses of the primary hostname from remote servers.

    I've reset the exim config on all my servers but this problem still happens.

    The rejection message is as follows...

    I'm not sure about the "while verifying" part of that message either - because we have sender verify disabled too.
