Exim4 Forwarding Issue - Gmail/Yahoo Specific
I'm sending a message from email address "A" to a user "B" on my server. The user "B" has their email forwarding to address "A". So, when I send a message from "A" to "B", I expect the message to arrive back at "A"'s Inbox. This works perfectly when I send messages to "B" from any account but "A". However, when I use "A" and "A" is a Gmail account, the message never gets forwarded and appears to disappear into the ethos. If A is a Yahoo account, the message gets flagged as Spam (regardless of the content).
Is this a configuration problem on my exim4 server?

Thanks for the quick response! Here is a snippet of the logs. I substituted email@example.com for my gmail email address and firstname.lastname@example.org for the email address that is managed by my server.
