I have this one server where no accounts can send or recieve email. All users recieve the below message when sending email to an account on the server.

... while talking to server.com.:
>>> RCPT To:<test@server.com>
<<< 550 relaying to <test@servers.com> prohibited by administrator (failed to find host name from IP address)
550 5.1.1 <test@server.com>... User unknown



It looks like exim dosent know that the system has any users. Anyone have any ideas?

Hello,

Make sure you have a reverse lookup on your IP so that when you do:
Code:
dig -x 1.2.3.4
it returns *something*. Some mail servers will not accept mail from a server that doesn't have a functioning reverse ip lookup.

(I think I've already replied to this via email, but forgot to mention the reverse IP lookup portion)

The problem was that direct admin did not copy the directadmin exim confg over the standard one.
