    i have a forum hosted on my dedicated server and i sent a mass email out yesterday but only people who have a email with the site url for example [email protected] get the email but the server wont send out to people who arnt on the server for example hotmail or yahoo etc.

    Configure spf record

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SPF fights return-path address forgery and makes it easier to identify spoofs.
    Domain owners identify sending mail servers in DNS.
    SMTP receivers verify the envelope sender address against this information, and can distinguish authentic messages from forgeries before any message data is transmitted.
    Google for spf
    Good Luck

    Looks like your using a cpanel server, the mail logs will be in /var/log on your server.
