    I've been getting these lately - seem to be unroutable emails and they have the full original email along inside these emails I get from the server. I've gotten them for cox.net, earthlink.net, hotmail.com, etc...

    Is there something wrong? I'm not sure if these are getting delivered or not. I've gotten 9 so far in the last two days....

    help... thnx... - rYno

    Go on, have a guess
    I've seen this problem once or twice if you're running APF. Flushing and restarting APF has got it going again.

    A couple of test you can do from the server shell:

    telnet earthlink.net 25

    See if you get an error. Also:

    dig earthlink.net MX

    Make sure that you get a proper MX record reply.

    Any info on that data?

    I dont know what the APF is or how to flush it... is that in the WHM?


    edit..... Is that Advaced Policy Firewall? I don't believe I have that on my server??? idk tho.

    ...then my advice was moot since you can connect to the mail server for earthlink (shown by the telnet) and you can resolve the MX record (shown by the dig) :)

    crap - anybody else? I'm still getting these from server... from different domains too like hotmail and stuff....

    They're all mail sent out from users on our server - and include full messages - so its not like its fake spam or anything...

    help... :confused:

    I have the same problem with scripts sending out email. Webmail and direct POP accounts work fine. So PHP mail is having trouble somehow....especially with GMAIL.

    Help on this would be appreciated!@

    reading some other Cpanel threads I found the answer.

    Go to Tweak Settings:

    Turn off: Track the origin of messages sent though the mail server by adding the X-Sender headers (exim 4.34+ required)

    Restart Exim

    No more problems!

    cPanel's WHM documentation says nothing about this feature so I am asking someone to explain this. Isn't this feature important to have to track outgoing emails (spam tracking)?

    Also, why would (or does this) have to cause such errors? In what cases would it NOT cause an error if enabled?

    Just curious.

    Related problem (( think)

    I've just received a call from a client trying to send an email to me (from an external/remote ISP to our exim/WHM/cPanel box). Here's the bounced email message he's getting:

    Looks to me like our server thinks there's a problem (temporary hopefully) with the mail domain 'bigpond.net.au'. Bigpond are the largest ISP in Australia (and also one of the worst in terms of reliability and customer service) - sorry Telstra!

    I am with Secret Agent on this - can we get an explination of why this is causing the problem?

    Tracking Headers is a good option, that helps the fight versus SPAM. Anything from CPANEL?

    If you want anything more on the setting you'll have to ask cPanel directly.

    Finally I got the solution.

    Cpanel support staff resolve it for me "The presence of /etc/eximmailtrap was causing the issue with webmail
    not sending out. I removed this file and this appears to be working now"

    so gust remove /etc/eximmailtrap and restart Exim.

    :)

    Regards.
