The domain rodney.rhwebhosting.com seems not to exits in DNS. Please create a DNS-A Record for rodney.rhwebhosting.com in the authoritive DNS server for rhwebhosting.com that points to your server IP.

This has nothing to do with mail users. You are trying to send mail to the hostname rodney.rhwebhosting.com and this hostanme does not exist in DNS. So you will have to createit if you want to use it.

Ok, please try to send a mail from a mail client and then post the exact error message that appeared in the mail log. It might be a misconfiguration in the mail client.

Ok, then you are not connecting to your server.

Please make sure that you set the smtp and pop3 server in your mail client to:

rhwebhosting.com

or the IP address of your server.

If no line appears in the mail log, the your mail client dioes not connect to the right server. Please edit the smtp settings of your mail client and set it to rhwebhosting.com or the IP address of your server.
