    I awoke to over 300 emails from my server saying CPSRVD and SPAMD is down.

    I've tried restarting both to no avail:
    Code:
    root@--- [~]# /etc/init.d/exim restart
    Shutting down exim:                                        [  OK  ]

    Starting mailman services:  
    When I first restarted cPanel there was an exim stats error which I fixed. I've checked the logs and can't see anything obvious. Unsure where to start.......

    Some people say move to Courier then back to Dovecot but don't really want to do that and unsure if that will fix anything ?

    It looks like a firewall issue - I stopped the firewall and the services recovered.
    What has cPanel changed in 11.46.0 build 17 that uses a port that is obviously blocked ?

    Hello :)

    The change log is available at:

    11.46 Change Log

    However, there's nothing that would require you to modify the ports that you allow in your firewall. Are you using CSF or custom firewall rules?

    Thank you.

    I use APF/BFD.

    It may not be from this update - looks like CPSRVD and SPAMD fail if they are restarted or fail (and can't be restarted). The firewall then needs to be stopped - the services restarted - then the firewall restarted.

    I block the none SSL ports for cPanel/whm (2086 and 2082) - I also block all access to cPanel and WHM apart from one IP through "host access control". Could this be it ?
