If you are testing an email problem and see this error:

R=lookuphost defer (-1): lowest numbered MX record points to local host

This means the domain name is not listed in /etc/localdomains

You generally can fix this by running /scripts/mailperm

If not, you should check /var/cpanel/users/USERNAME and make sure there is a DNS line in for this domain name and it is not along the lines of XDNS

Example

root@server8 [~]# mail -v test@server.com
Subject: test
test
