    first thing you need to do as a server administrator is to login to your server and check server logs in order to determine the exact reason. After reason is detected there should be easy to find a solution. Have you checked your server logs?

    you should login to your server through SSH and check the mail logs in /var/log/ directory. However if you do not manage to get it you could contact our support team by opening a ticket and maybe we will be able to help you.
  • hello Valentine :)

    i have contact with support and tell to me this

    probably you should go with a suggested solution. Also you should check for another solutions in cPanel forum. Our servers are self-managed and we can only guide you to the way of solution.

    i try now with SSH and show to me this: ( -bash: /var/log/: is a directory )

    Thank you

    yes, /var/log/ is a directory. You should first go into this directory:

    cd /var/log/

    Then you can check its content:


    Find necessary log file and check its content.

    We advise you to check " exim_mainlog", "exim_paniclog" and " maillog" to see where could be an errors.

    Have you checked for a solution at cPanel official forum?
  • hello

    i post in cpanel forum my problem, and finlaly i contact with cpanel support and fix this problem. but now my email i cant receve or send mails.

    from cpanel say not a cpanel problem, the problem is in mx records in my domain, the mx records in my time4vps dashboard are okay.

    i dont know now what can i do ?

    Thank you
  • ValentineValentine Administrator
    you should check you domain MX records and determine if they are right:
  • hello

    this show:
    No Records Exist, Reported by,
    but my mx records from time4vps dns management are okay
    i dont know were is the problem.

    Thank you
  • ValentineValentine Administrator
    Could you open a support ticket with your domain information so we could check it?
