    Exim broke last night, presumable after the cPanel update. Below is an example from the exim_mainlog.

    failed to expand ACL string
    "${if eq {${acl_m0}}{1}{0}{${perl{acl_checksa_deliver}{$domain}{${extract{5}{:}
    {${lookup{${lookup{$domain}lsearch*{/etc/userdomains}{$value}}}lsearch{/etc/pass
    wd}{$value}}}}}}}}": Undefined subroutine &main::acl_checksa_deliver called.

    External mail is being rejected.

    I'm currently on FC2 by the way. (Yes, I will upgrade very soon)
    I have MailScanner and Firewall installed by Chirpy.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    My Hosting provider figure out a work around...

    "Service Configuration" --> "Exim Configuration Editor" in the left panel, you will see a checkbox in the main window with the following line preceding it:

    "Use the old transport based spamassassin system instead of the new acl style one. (not recommended, slow)"


    Looks like he bypassed Chirpy's MailScanner.

    I will proceed with getting a new server now....

    I can confirm this issue also exists on CENTOS Enterprise 3.9.

    Client is running cPanel 11.15.0-C17938, and the latest CS Mailscanner. Identical issue & errors as of last night's cPanel update.

    YOu need to rebuild exim.conf. /scripts/buildeximconf should do it.

    I did /scripts/buildeximconf, restarted exim and restarted MailScanner and I still get the same error. Please more suggestions.

    same here... the buildeximconf script did not fix it.

    I'm just going to leave the old transport turned on until I can migrate to a new OS.

    I did a force cpanel update, and it seems to be working now.
    He is the version I am running, WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.15.0-C17938.

    I had this as well, from memory (but not entirely sure - was half asleep when it happened) im sure it was the 'Ratelimit incoming SMTP connections that violate RFCs (this is usually spammers and broken mta)' and 'Trusted Mail Host Whitelist (/etc/trustedmailhosts) -- bypass spam checks' checkboxes activating themselves when I ran upcp, failing that it was definately one of the ACL conditions, as I already had HELO acls in place, those options conflict with them.
