    Hi!
    can I check the exim off in WHM-->service manager ?
    Will that cause all email account on this server not receive emails ?

    I stop exim and named today on one of my server and found all email account on that server not receiving emails.


    Why ?

    Why on earth would you stop exim?
    Exim is the mail software, if you disable that ofcourse the server will stop receiving/sending mail.

    Let me see, you registered in Oct 2001 and 3.5 years later you're still asking these type of questions?

    Or are you not the same person who registered that account back then?

    Hi!
    You wana help,help, don't say words like that, I maybe not pro. like you do in cpanel, OK!!

    I thought exim is only SMTP and cppop is the part for receiving.

    james,

    that is a fair question. cppop is the POP3, however all mail is transported with the MTA (Exim).

    the POP3 and IMAP daemons only handle the email after it reaches the server, Exim (SMTP) handles all transporting of email, both inbound and outbound.

    I hope that helps :)

    You're right, that comment was unnecessary. My apologies.

    I didn't understand from your first post that you were trying to disable/block SMTP. I thought you disabled Exim because you didn't know what it was. Which to me seemed like a strange thing to do. :)
