My client is not getting mail of having it delayed for up to a day which makes it hard to run their business. I have been trying to trouble shoot but cannot use tracked deliver in cPanel as it seems you have not configured the exim settings correctly. I have used external systems to set the sending of mail to the general info account and had failed like below. Every once in a while it will not disconnect or time out and a mail will go through straight away with not pattern or reason.
Please suggest a course of action.
Checked and validated MX records.
Validated it is local mail exchanger.
Happens for mail sent from a multitude of other providers to the accounts under our domain in cPanel (gmail, outlook, exchange, etc)
Sample error trying to send a mail:
mail.issaquahdance.com. - 188.8.131.52 [Could not connect: Could not receive data: Operation timed out.]
Using: https://ismyemailworking.com/AdvancedTest/ with email@example.com I had it work once end to end. It shows the MX lookup is working as it tries to talk to the server but gets a disconnect
error from gmail with personal email addresses removed.

Subject: Delivery Status Notification (Delay)
There was a temporary problem delivering your message to email@example.com. Gmail will retry for 45 more hours. You'll be notified if the delivery fails permanently.
