    Hello;

    We have problems sending email to yahoo accounts from one server ....

    Here is the exim log...

    2006-10-29 15:29:21 1GeIDZ-0007fM-8W == xxx@yahoo.es R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (-53): retry time not reached for any host
    2006-10-29 15:29:21 1GeIDZ-0007fP-EL == yyyy@yahoo.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (-53): retry time not reached for any host


    I have replaced original name with xxx and yyyy for the email accounts in the above log.


    root@server [/var/cpanel/users]# exim -bt yyyy@yahoo.com
    testingih@yahoo.com
    router = lookuphost, transport = remote_smtp

    We can ping yahoo domains ...

    root@ [/var/cpanel/users]# ping yahoo.com
    PING yahoo.com (66.94.234.13) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from w2.rc.vip.scd.yahoo.com (66.94.234.13): icmp_seq=0 ttl=55 time=46.8 ms
    64 bytes from w2.rc.vip.scd.yahoo.com (66.94.234.13): icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=46.5 ms


    root@server [/var/cpanel/users]# ping yahoo.es
    PING yahoo.es (217.12.3.11) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from www2.vip.ukl.yahoo.com (217.12.3.11): icmp_seq=0 ttl=244 time=105 ms

    I even went on to stop/flush firewall and check emails .. still the same error.

    SMTP tweak is also disabled on the server.

    Other details:-
    root@server [/var/cpanel/users]# netstat -anp | grep :25
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 31502/exim


    Resolv.conf looks ok and reverse dns is already up for the server.


    The same email is recieved at hotmail or gmail accounts.


    Please advise.



    Thanks
