Hello,

yesterday I tryed to install mod_dosevasive by following this tutorial
www (dot) linuxforum (dot) com/linux_tutorials/66/1.php

and after I finished I went to WHM and installed Mod Security and clamavconnector from Addon Modules

everything was fine at that time but when I tryed to send an email this morning using Outlook Express it doesn't send any email and I receive the following erorr :

====================

An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'Re: Importent, Account: 'webmaster', Server: 'mail.XXXXXX.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '451 Temporary local problem - please try later', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 451, Error Number: 0x800CCC6A

====================

also when I send an email from other server or from hotmail to my server it doesn't reach my server although I can send an emails by using the webmail on the server
but I receive only the root emails and from the emails from the helpDesk on my server

this is what I done and the problem still there

- I removed mod_dosevasive but I don't now if I did it correctly
- I removed mod_dosevasive from httpd.conf also the related files in libexec
- I unchecked Mod Security and clamavconnector from Addon Modules but they still there
- /scripts/easyapache
- /scripts/exime4
- / scripts/sysup
- /scripts/updatenow
- /scripts/upcp --force
- /scripts/fixeverything
- Graceful Server Reboot from WHM

I don't know what to do else can someone please help me

I'm waiting for any answer because I opend a ticket and no answer form the support for almost 12 hours now

Look in /var/log/exim_mainlog and /var/log/exim_paniclog to see where the problem lies.

Hello,

thank you casey
but I know nothing about these log files what I should look for

/var/log/exim_paniclog shows many lines most of them looks the same

and when I try to run ( pico /var/log/exim_mainlog ) the SSH failed and when try to restart it via WHM I receive :
Nov 28 15:09:24 server2 sshd: sshd shutdown failed Nov 28 15:09:25 server2 sshd: succeeded sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

any ideas

Go on, have a guess
Ok, first to clear up a few things:

1. This has nothing to do with POP3 as the subject says. This is an SMTP problem.

2. mod_dos evasive and mod_security have nothing at all to do with this, they only affect Apache.

3. So, that leaves the installation of clamavconnector that could have caused your problem, if you definitely changed nothing else to do with Exim.

Now, you do need to do as casey suggested. That is, run the following command from an SSH window:

tail -f /var/log/maillog

Then send yourself an email from your hotmail account. Watch what happens in your exim_mainlog when it arraives, and post the information here.

Hello,

when I sent an email from my hotmail account nothing happen no changes also from Gmail account
but when I tryed to send an email using Outlook Express to hotmail account this is what appeares

=======

Nov 28 21:58:19 server2 cpanelpop[15744]: Login host=213.184.166.205 ip=213.184.166.205 [email protected] [email protected]
Nov 28 21:58:20 server2 cpanelpop[15744]: Session Closed host=213.184.166.205 ip=213.184.166.205 [email protected] [email protected] totalxfer=199

If it is clamavconnector how I can remove it or how I can restore the normal setting of exim although I run /scripts/exim4

I hope that I find a solution by your help

Thank you,

pico /etc/clamav.conf

Find the section that says

# Path to the local socket. The daemon doesn't change the mode of the
# created file (portability reasons). You may want to create it in a directory
# which is only accessible for a user running daemon.
LocalSocket /var/clamd
Change that to

LocalSocket /var/run/clamav/clamd
Then restart exim.

You should be all set after that.
