    Have you configured 'Change System Mail Preferences' under 'Server Contacts' in WHM to tell WHM where to send the mail for Root?

    Go on, have a guess
    You should also tail your exim mainlog and then force delivery of one of those messages in the queue through WHM and watch for errors.

    If you have the standard cPanel configuration without any additional ACL's (e.g. if you run /scripts/reseteximtodefaults) then you won't have an open relay no matter what dnsreport.com says. If you have made ACL and other setting changes in exim.conf try resetting back to defaults and test it again.

    Those errors don't help as they didn't force a redelivery of the mail, you could try and find the orignal reason for it being queued with:

    grep 1ETJ3y-0005Nd-KC /var/log/exim_mainlog
