All email accounts on my system are getting bounced with this message:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 550 Email blocked by ORDB
I recently updated exim with the update script if that means anything.

Any ideas? This is pretty urgent.

I commented out the following in exim.conf and emails are receiving now.

Code:
# deny using ordb
#  deny message = Email blocked by ORDB - to unblock see http://domain.com/
       # only for domains that do want to be tested against RBLs
#       domains = +use_rbl_domains
#       dnslists = relays.ordb.org

As I've pointed out elsewhere in these forums, DirectAdmin's exim.conf file hasn't used the ORDB blocklist for quite some time now. They've been closed down for some time, and a few days ago they started blocking all email to get the attention of everyone still trying to use them.

Your exim.conf needs to be updated as Jeff pointed out. As I understand it, ORDB hasn't been used in some time and recently they finally started failing requests so people are aware of it.
