    I have 3 clients that receive mail from appriver. It appears that appriver delivery server connects so frequently, that cpanel (exim?) is rejecting connections.

    Does anyone know how I increase the number of connections that cpanel will accept from a given smtp inbound source?

    Here is the message being sent back to appriver by exim:

    Expected '220 ...' at []:25, got:451-The server has reached its limit for processing requests from your host.

    You can change the max smtp connection in /etc/exim.conf using below parameter :

    smtp_accept_max = VALUE

    The VALUE is the number you need to set according to your needs. You can experiment by increasing it a bit from its current value and see if it fulfills your requirement else you can increase it further until it works for you.
