    None of the accounts on my machine are able to send to a yahoo, hotmail or aol address. Either through Neomail or relaying.
    Messages bounce with:

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following addres(es) failed:

    AnyAccount@yahoo.com
    unrouteable mail domain &yahoo.com&

    I have Exim running on port 25 and 26. I just upgraded to CP 5, but it was happening before I upgraded.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    What do you get with this:
    # dig @localhost yahoo.com MX
    and with this:
    # dig @66.218.71.63 yahoo.com MX
    when run from your server?

    Oh, I really meant &Have you touched your exim.conf&?

    FYI, my exim.conf files are 18386 bytes long.

    Your name server seems to know where Yahoo's mail servers are, so it must be Exim that is failing to function properly. Maybe it's skipping some step, and a corrupt config file might be the reason for that.

    Run this and tell us what you get, maybe someone can shed some light:
    # exim -bt -d11 anyaccount@yahoo.com

    Ok, this is very strange. I thought it was all of the domains on the server having this problem, but it appears to be just this one.

    Here's what I got on the one having the problem:

    Exim version 3.36 debug level 11 uid=32087 gid=32089
    Berkeley DB: Sleepycat Software: DB 2.4.14: (6/2/98)
    [AnyUser]@yahoo.com is undeliverable:
    unrouteable mail domain &yahoo.com&

    Shazad, unless you're hosting yahoo.com, this:

    yahoo.com in local_domains? yes (matched lsearch;/etc/localdomains)

    shouldn't be so.

    SBrad, by any chance does that user have a big mailing list? (wild guess)

    Yeah... is yahoo.com actually in your /etc/localdomains file? I don't imagine that a subdomain would throw this off, so hopefully a user creating a subdomain like yahoo.com.mydomain.com wouldn't cause Exim to identify yahoo.com as a local domain.

    No, it's when I just send single emails. Ie, &Welcome customer&, etc.

    I was having a similar problem and it ended up being that I wasn't using a proper hostname for my server. Yahoo and Hotmail were both undeliverable until I gave the machine a proper hostname. Maybe this will help you as well?

    Hi,

    I seem to have the same problem as above. And it just happened after recent cPanel update. Any insights?
