    Ok so I just go your email message, but now I am confused. How did you send me a message from me?

    Here are some lines from the reject log:

    2008-03-26 21:11:56 [] F=<taher-eichstae@EXAGROUP.COM> rejected RCPT <>: Unrouteable address
    2008-03-26 21:12:16 (equip04) [] F=<> rejected RCPT <>: Unrouteable address

    2008-03-26 21:15:23 [] F=<hek-emmunnab@APLUS.HU> rejected RCPT <>: Unrouteable address

    2008-03-26 21:24:22 [] F=<> rejected RCPT <>: Unrouteable address
    Again I really appreciate the help with attempting to fix this problem.

    this might be where you lose me a bit, I am more of a postfix guy then an exim guy, but..... are those users valid local users for exim? are they actually local users or are you using aliases? check out this link Handling mail for non-system users with Exim4? it has a little bit of info and some helpful links.

    how did I send an email from you to you?
    for one, your mail server accepts mail for your domain from the outside. This is ok to do but you get people from the outside spoofing your emails. if you don't let outside users do mail from: your local domain then that will stop that. generally an incoming mail server will be accepting mail from other domains, not itself. if this is a mail server and not just smtp its hard to make that rule.

    when setting up a mail server you should learn to send emails with telnet, it will make troubleshooting a lot easier

    telnet email - Google Search

    I think I might have stumbled upon something last night. I noticed in a file somewhere that my FQDN on the machine is but my primary domain is

    Not sure if this is the problem, but I am sure it might be part of the issue, I just can't figure out where to change the setting on the machine so that it will be

    This is fixed finally and as I suspected it was a configuration issue at godaddy. In my MX file I used the actual IP address and not the domain name. Once I changed the MX record to use the actual domain name, bang email was being delivered like it should be.

    Still thanks for the help because I would have taken forever to figure out that I needed to open up the smtp port. lol
