    Hi There

    I have searched through the forums but have not found this specific problem

    When sending mail to my server from certain ISPS (not all) clients sending the mail
    get the following error
    The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

    '***@******' on 2005/05/24 08:36 PM
    553 sorry, relaying denied from your location [***.**.**.**] (#5.7.1)

    I have looked in exim_mainlog and reject_log and dont see anything there (details), is there
    anyway certain domains can be blocked from relaying mail to my server.

    I am on the latest release build 10 of cpanel on fedora core1
    running apf firewall with mailscanner

    thanks for your help in advance

    Hi Chirpy,

    I think you may be on the button here as it seems to only originate from
    one ISPs smtp not being able to connect to my server, any further advice would
    be much appreciated. :)

    You can open an alternative SMTP port in WHM > Service Manager > e.g. the default in there is port 26. The client would then modify their email app to use that port instead of port 25 to send out emails and thus usually bypass the ISP's restrictions.
