    All other mail from root are being send, but not the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp --cron" for root.
    Code:
    root@vps [~]# exim -bt root@*****.com
    root@*****.com is undeliverable: The mail server could not deliver mail to root@*****.com.  The account or domain may not exist, they may be blacklisted, or missing the proper dns entries.

    Hello :)

    Could you verify if the "root" forwarder is configured to forward to a valid email address? It's modified via:

    "WHM Home » Server Contacts » Edit System Mail Preferences"

    Thank you.

    I tried :
    Forward mail for “root” to:me@minedomein.com
    The system currently forwards mail for “nobody” to root and me@minedomein.com
    The system currently forwards mail for “cpanel” to root and me@minedomein.com
    No luck
    It'only this mail /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp --cron" for root.

    Could you verify if your domain name or your server's hostname are added to the /etc/remotedomains file? EX:

    Code:
    grep $domain /etc/localdomains /etc/remotedomains
    If so, ensure you move it to the /etc/localdomains file by changing the "Mail Routing" settings under "WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone", assuming your email is handled locally.

    Thank you.

    Hi Michael,
    shows nothing

    But what I can see in WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone
    All accounts are local
    Only when I look to my server name it shows nothing for my mail

    Hi Michael,

    I think I got working.
    I edit the dnszone for my servername and when I test it with
    Code:
    root@vps [~]# exim -bt root@*****.com
    I get the right answer
