    I have server with the WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.15.0-R17665
    CENTOS Enterprise 4.5 i686 on virtuozzo - WHM X v3.1.0

    While trying to send mail I am getting this error

    There was an error sending your message: Failed to connect to localhost:25 [SMTP: Invalid response code received from server (code: -1, response: abandoned: unknown, malformed, or incomplete option -Am)]

    On shell it is showing the following error for SMTP :-

    telnet localhost 25
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    exim abandoned: unknown, malformed, or incomplete option -Am
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    I have tried /scripts/eximup --force and /scripts/upcp --force but exim failes while reinstalling it through eximup scripts :(

    But it shows up and running in the server while checking through shell

    service exim status
    exim (pid 30559) is running...

    netstat -an | grep 25
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN

    Please help to sort out this.
