    I haven't experienced any of the major problems being talked about here regarding the upgrade to Exim 4 ... however, I would like to know if their is some way to keep my customized exim.conf from being replaced with the CPanel's default exim.conf file each time CPanel updates Exim? As well, the update process wipes out my /etc/secondarymx which causes major problems for the few domains I relay for.

    Is their something I can set which will allow automatic updates to the Exim software to occur, but leave my configuration in tact?

    I know the configuration syntax changes from 3 to 4 were significant, but after correcting everything yesterday, last night's update blew it all away again.
