If anyone has sysadmin access to a server running CPanel, I would be
happy do some trouble-shooting on the problem.

error with Exim. It could be something as simple as a timeout value.

Are the servers also running a local DNS server - and set to resolve
using as the primary nameserver? There are so many things that
could be a problem...
