    I read this post root @ hostname emails are frozen
    but it did not help me to solve the problem.
    CENTOS 7.3 x86_64 kvm – vps WHM 60.0 (build 35) EA4
    The problem is exim main_log:
    017-01-23 20:29:54 cwd=/etc/csf 2 args: /usr/sbin/exim -bpc
    2017-01-23 20:30:09 SMTP connection from [127.0.0.1]:45928 (TCP/IP connection count = 1)
    2017-01-23 20:30:11 SMTP connection from localhost [127.0.0.1]:45928 closed by QUIT
    2017-01-23 20:30:11 SMTP connection from [127.0.0.1]:52444 (TCP/IP connection count = 1)
    2017-01-23 20:30:11 SMTP connection from localhost [127.0.0.1]:52444 closed by QUIT

    Last update
    I made a echo test | mail -s "test message" root and I recieved that mail.
    I think it is a CSF issue

    Hello,

    Is there any additional output in /var/log/exim_mainlog for one of the affected messages? I don't see a reference to a particular message in the output you provided.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    You will have to test it properly. Open 2 tabs:

    In tab 1) execute below command:

    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog | grep root
    OR
    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog | grep <Email you are sending to>


    In tab 2) Execute the mail command and then check what is showing in the tab 1 logs..
