As your profile indicates you have root access to the server, I'd suggest checking the maillogs for information on what is happening when your users attempt to send mail. You can find the logs at /var/log/maillog you may also want to check the cPanel error logs for any further clues on what's occurring. They are located at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log

Also in /var/log/maillog nothing relevant.

From the webmail screen i only see "error cannot connect to server stmp -1"

Any suggestions?

Sorry, may I join this discussion? I also found similar problems with error logs like TS.

This is my log ..

We are seeing something similar, although our log files appear to point to failed logins to WHM.
I wish I understood the duplicate log access thing - particularly when it mentions things like Microsoft Networks, it makes me very uncomfortable.

When we applied Access Control to whostmgrd the log lines above were replaced by lots of tcp wrapper failures. So the warnings are suppressed and the attempts to login are blocked but now we are getting denied problems for our server's local ip.

Dropping connection from xxx.x.xxx.xxx because of tcp_wrappers at cpsrvd.pl line 4021.

Seems a little counter-intuitive to have to add the server's locally bound IP address to the Access List - am I missing something?

Apologies in advance if this is unrelated, hopefully someone could move it to the correct location if it's irrelevant to the OP's question, the errors do bear resemblance/similarity though.

Thank you.
