    mate i had the exact same problem, multiple domains, multiple users, what i narrowed it down to was that even though the users have an unlimited quota...

    the user that wasnt receiveing the emails had a large amount of emails in their inbox, i created a new folder (Just through email client) moved all the inbox shit into the new folder and i was able to send mail from an external domain, very weird, let me know if your problem is the same as mine.........
