    I created a new domain/account on the server yesterday, then today set the "Default" to forward all emails to forward to a Gmail address.

    But in testing, they aren't showing up.

    So I changed it to send to an email account on the same server, but a different domain. They still don't show up.

    Then I created a POP account, and that works. But the forwards do not.

    I ran a "trace" in cPanel, and the result shows:

    Code:
    me@example.com
    virtual_aliases_nostar via /etc/userdomains
    |
    |__ forward@whatever.com
        untraceable route to local delivery
    Based on an earlier thread, I checked to make sure that the new domain shows up in /etc/localdomains, and it does.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello,

    Could you let us know the output from /var/log/exim_mainlog for one of the affected messages? EX:

    Code:
    exigrep user@gmail /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Thank you.

    Nevermind, it turned out that it took a solid 20 hours for my SPF filter to propagate. Once it did, new emails came through (but of course, old ones seem to just be lost).

    For the sake of future readers, the Exim log showed that they were successfully sent so the SPF filter was a shot in the dark.
