    Hi,

    Anyone seen this error message before? It's happening after removing GRScripts ASSP. Following is output after running:

    Code:
    # /scripts/eximup --force
    Code:
    Exim Perl Load List is: spam_acl_support|checkuserquota|boxtrapper|safefile|fast_checkvalias|checkspam|checkspam2|fast_isdemo|fast_accountfunc|checkpass_cphulkd
    /etc/exim.pl.local installed!
    razor2 is not installed, disabling it in SpamAssassin to save memory
    pyzor is not installed, disabling it in SpamAssassin to save memory
    SPF is disabled in exim or unavailable, enabling SPF for SpamAssassin

    The Exim failure may stem from modified files being left behind after the uninstall of the third-party script (e.g., possibly left-over from the script's uninstall process, or from earlier modifications).

    Please try reverting the Exim configuration back to stock-defaults via the Exim Configuration Editor in WHM. This can be performed via the following steps:

    1.) Access WHM as root then navigate to the following page:
    WHM: Main >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Editor

    2.) Scroll down to the bottom of the page, then click one of the reset feature buttons to reset either just the ACL config or all Exim configs:
    * Reset ACL Config to Defaults
    * Reset All Configs to Defaults

    Here is related documentation detailing the above:
    EximConfig < AllDocumentation/WHMDocs < TWiki
    ResetExim < AllDocumentation/WHMDocs < TWiki

    Would you believe it... it actually came down to a Perl process hogging port 25. Found it, killed it, and restarted Exim just fine.
