    That's really weird. No cPanel updates or anything? Exims chugging along and all of a sudden it just quits? Very strange. Have you put in a support ticket?

    I also have:
    exim-4.20-190_cpanel_stmpcontrol_antivirus_rewrite

    Althoug it is working for me with no problems, I have found the easiest way to figure out problems with Exim is to do a restart from within shell.

    /etc/init.d/exim restart

    If there are errors, the information is displayed to what it is and what line it is on. Exim doesn't normally fail on it's own. Something happened and you should have gotten an eMail: Exim failed -- did you receive one?

    I ran the updated cpanel. exim died. I ran scripts\exim4 and it fails stating exim.conf is missing. replaced file from backup and still doesnt work.

    Tried reverting to exim3. I read on this forum that it worked for several people and that the option to revert back to exim3 has been removed for some reason.
    I get an error mess when i tried to revert stating that WHM 7 requires exim4.

    Looking for an Exim 4.2 RPM for Redhat 7.1. No luck finding it so far.
    Tried:
    http://rpmseek.com
    http://www.rpm.org
    http://rpmfind.net

    If anyone has come across this RPM or has any other suggestions on were to look please let me know.

    The Exim4 in Cpanel is specially written for Cpanel, any other RPM for Exim 4 won't work.

    You have a problem in your exim.conf .. Did you lock this file?

    I have the same problem and echo didn't fix it. At some point I installed some clem antivirus thing from forum.rackshack.net but then I uninstalled it because it caused problems. I have no idea what else it can be?
