    How would i go about changing the user exim runs as?

    I keep getting the following error:

    Message 19MUFn-0008dM-00 is not frozen
    delivering message 19MUFn-0008dM-00
    LOG: 0 MAIN PANIC
    virtual_user director: failed to open /usr/home/username/etc/sub.domain.com/passwd for linear search: Permission denied (euid=26 egid=6)
    LOG: 0 MAIN
    == paper2@web.filuren.net D=virtual_user defer (-18): failed to open /usr/home/username/etc/sub.domain.com/passwd for linear search: Permission denied (euid=26 egid=6)


    This is because of the group that its as. cPanel creates them with the group as "mail", but since exim runs under mailnull it cant read em. This causes a lot of mail to hang in the mail queue.
