    We are currently using Exim 3.34.1 on a RH/Linux 6.2. We have the most recent
    stable WHM and Cpanel installed. When using a Perl written mass mailer, that
    sends out approximately 1-2000 emails twice a day, we seem to have a real
    delay problem when sending out emails to AOL accounts. On the average,
    the from the time the email is sent from our server, to when the AOL account
    recieves it, is usually anywhere from 4-6hrs later! We've added some additional
    settings in the exim.conf file, to help increase the speed of how the email
    is sent, adding &auto_thaw=60s&, &split_spool_directory&, which is recommended
    when using heavy loads on the server or mass mailer applications as we use. We
    have noticed a marked improvement, over-all, when sending our mass mailings,
    ..EXCEPT with the AOL accounts.

    We have used the same identical mass mailer perl program on other servers
    that use &Sendmail&, with absolutly no problems, and no time delays when
    sending to the same AOL email accounts, Sendmail seems to have no problems
    sending out the mass mailings. But Exim seems to really have a problem with it

    I am told we can not install Sendmail, as this will break the Cpanel email
    features provided by Exim.

    I'm hoping someone else may have experienced this type of problem or may
    have some suggestions on how to correct this. Or if it is at all possible
    to install Sendmail, without conflicting with Exim and the Cpanel setup.

    Thank you,
