    Note, a cPanel/WHM environment is designed such that scripts intended for use with sendmail will continue to work even though we use Exim as our MTA.

    This question can best be answered by the enquirer reading the document provided on the web sites for the Exim and sendmail projects.

    Exim contains the vowels i and e
    Sendmail contains the vowels e, a, i

    Therefore the difference between Sendmail and Exim is the letter a

    Seriously, your question is extremely vague. rhenderson already pointed you to information on each application. If English is not your native tongue then please tell us in which language you prefer to read technical documentation and we'll see if we can find some in that language.

    That's odd. It has been, and still is, working just fine. I looked into the log file around that time and it seems that Mod Security didn't like this IP: 88.138.0.155. Is this yours?

    Dear cpanelkenneth (Admin)

    No problem with English at all.

    so you suggest that there is difference of vowels only ? :(

    http://servertune.com/kbase/entry/289/ is working fine here, no 404 at all :)

    Admin, I will really look into this.

    Well, the page works now. And no, that is not one of our IP addresses ( to the best of my knowledge ).
