T=remote_smtp defer (-53): retry time not reached for any host

chech your logs

cd /var/logs

then  more exim_mailing / grep email

you will get the error ,,,,,,,,,,,,,

then try to use the code below to fix the problem

This can be caused by multiple things, however if it happens for each email, it’s likely your exim databases are corrupt; to resolve this you should:

/usr/sbin/exim_tidydb -t 1d /var/spool/exim retry > /dev/null
/usr/sbin/exim_tidydb -t 1d /var/spool/exim reject > /dev/null
/usr/sbin/exim_tidydb -t 1d /var/spool/exim wait-remote_smtp > /dev/null

/scripts/courierup — force
/scripts/eximup –force

If you did that, yet the problem persists, you can either seek professional help, or contact the cPanel support.

our ISP is likely blocking your connection via port 25:

[19:25:19 ns313489 root@4396451 ~]cPs# telnet mx1.cpanel.net 25
Trying 208.74.121.68...
telnet: connect to address 208.74.121.68: Connection timed out
[19:34:17 ns313489 root@4396451 ~]cPs# telnet mx2.cpanel.net 25
Trying 208.74.125.122...

Whereas, it would normally work as such:

~ » telnet mx1.cpanel.net 25
Trying 208.74.121.68...
Connected to mx1.cpanel.net.
Escape character is '^]'.

I would suggest contacting your provider to see if they have any restrictions on port 25.
