    Hello,
    The skiprbldomains file: is to enter names of local domains (our customers) do not want to check for blacklisting emails that come to them? or is it to enter remote domain names that should not be checked against the blacklists? (example gmail.com, hotmail.com .. or any other domain that is not on our servers)

    Thanks!

    It's what domains should not be checked against the RBLs when sending mail TO your server.

    Thanks vanessa, but after read some documents on exim.org my doubt persists.
    on exim.org says:
    In the exim.conf (generated by whm) this is the result for include skiprbldomains:
    In this moment mi file "skiprbldomains" have a list of few domains blacklisted on spamhaus, but dont work.
    I also noteworthy that the reference to "skip_rbl_domains" appears under "warn" and not under "deny message" ¿is this correct?

    The text in the exim.conf you pasted supports my original answer. You can see that it's checking whether a domain exists in the file before applying the failure to it.

    Have you checked your mail logs for the domains that should be whitelisted to see exactly what is happening?

    vanessa, here is another thread related http://forums.cpanel.net/f145/support-bypassing-rbl-checks-137137.html
    in this thread also considered the use of "domains =" to refer to the local domains

    In the documentation of cpanel page also mentioned the file skiprbldomains, but is not clear is the list is for remote (domains of the incoming email) or local domains (local accounts requesting not use "rbls") https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/ALD/RBLs

    I use the option "mail delivery reports" to check if skiprbldomains is working, but i can see that even if a domain is in the list, if the domain return positive when check an rbl, the mail is rejected.

    Hello :)

    The "/etc/skiprbldomains" file is designed for local domain names on your server that do not want incoming email checked against RBLs. For instance, let's say you host domain123.com, and you want to ensure it receives email from AOL.com when AOL.com is added to an RBL. You would add domain123.com to /etc/skiprbldomains so it can receive email from AOL.com.

    This is documented here:

    Skip RBLs on specific domains

    Thank you.
