    A few of my clients have reported "retry timeout exceeded" errors when sending mail to certain hosts.

    They will send the email and they will get this message returned to them:

    Any idea how to fix this issue?

    Check the email log for more details.

    /var/log/exim_mainlog

    Might be the mailbox is full or disk space is full or the wrong permissions or sometimes spam filters may be blocking the mails.

    In the log there is a whole bunch of them from different domains that say connection refused.

    Over the past month I have still be getting a lot of these "retry timeout exceeded" errors, on domains where there shouldn't be a problem like Lockheed Martin for example.

    I don't think there is a firewall installed, how can I check that?

    I tried the iptables -F, not sure if it did anything, it didn't tell me anything at the command prompt.
