cPanel was unable to automatically merge your Exim configuration with the new settings that shipped
with the build you have installed (11.11.0-STABLE_16774) because you have a custom ACL configuration
which cannot be automatically configured. To avoid any mail downtime, we thought it was best to leave
your previous configuration intact until the new configuration can be properly installed. In order to
complete this configuration update, you will need to manually merge your configuration with the new
configuration settings. Please follow the steps below to complete this update:

1. Enter WHM at https://xxxx:2087/
2. Enter the Exim Configuration Editor:
(Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Editor >> Advanced Configuration Editor)
3. Notate any custom changes you have made in the ACL section.
You may also which to make a copy of /etc/exim.conf.local
and /etc/exim.conf.localopts as it they your custom settings.
4. Click the 'Reset ACL Config to Defaults' button.
5. Reinstall your advanced custom settings.


Note: Until you manually complete this update, automatic spam filtering has been rendered inoperable to
prevent any mail loss.
