    Hello,

    I have made some changes on the server which caused all the emails that are sent normally by the server e.g. when a new account is created email is sent to admin id. These emails were generated by:

    cpanel@srv.example.com and sent to my main id.

    When I run:

    root@srv [~]# mail -s "test mail" root </dev/null

    It gives the following log output:

    ****
    2012-11-16 11:33:23 cwd=/root 3 args: send-mail -i root
    2012-11-16 11:33:23 1TZJEh-0006PY-Uf <= root@srv.EXAMPLE.COM U=root P=local S=512 T="test mail" for root
    2012-11-16 11:33:23 cwd=/var/spool/exim 3 args: /usr/sbin/exim -Mc 1TZJEh-0006PY-Uf
    2012-11-16 11:33:23 1TZJEh-0006PY-Uf => :blackhole: <admin@EXAMPLE.COM> R=virtual_aliases
    2012-11-16 11:33:23 1TZJEh-0006PY-Uf Completed
    ***

    But no mail is received at my id.

    Kindly guide.

    Okay got it fixed. As my main domain was using google's mail server and the the mx were set to use local mail exchange. Changing it to Remote Mail Exchanger resolved the issue.
