    I just upgraded to 11.1.0 and now the exim.conf file shown in the WHM Exim Configuration Editor/Advanced Editor differs substantially from what I see in /etc/exim.conf. Some of the differences appear not in the editable portions of the Advanced editor, but in places that I cannot edit. For example, in the Main Configuration Settings section of the file, the WHM editor shows this line:

    which no longer appears in my /etc/exim.conf file. It appears to have been replaced with this:
    which appears in /etc/exim.conf waaaay up the beginning where, in WHM, the first editable box appears.

    So, my questions are these. Which version is correct and how do I get the two versions synchronized to the right one?

    I found another occurance of this but with something different.

    Basically what was happening was all mail from and was being rejected with:

    sender verify defer for <>: require_files: error for /root/.spamassassinenable: Permission denied

    Turns out there were the exim checks for SA in the exim conf, sa_virtualuser directives, as we run mailscanner these are not used, yet seems to check them anyway, given the fact the config will be re-written on upgrade I figured it best to edit the config via WHM, however the lines in the config file didnt exist there (not even in the non-editable bit) so I needed to manually remove them to get things working again, however I am now concerned that they will re-appear when a newer exim RPM is available.

    Any advice greatly welcomed!
