Recently I got very interesting issue and it took very long time to figure our. The problem was I was able to send/receive email to other accounts but not able to send/receive to my own account means email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is what I was getting in error logs (Cpanel server).
gin:email@example.com S=789 firstname.lastname@example.org

Then here is what I found in cpanel forums:
central_filter refers to the email filters you’ve set up in cPanel – stored in /etc/vfilters/. Looks like you’ve got a filter set up to drop certain emails.
Then I renamed my domain name files in /etc/vfilters/ and I got this fixed, hope this will help you
