    I have a general question about the exim configuration editor. It has these sections of text then a textbox where you can enter in custom stuff, then more text, then another textbox. I want to change something that is in the text though, not just add new stuff with a textbox. However, WHM clearly states "Note: Directly editing the Exim configuration file (usually located at /etc/exim.conf) will only work temporarily as an update to Exim will result in the changes being overwritten." So how can I make changes to stuff WHM won't let me change without it being overwritten by cPanel?

    What do you need to change? There might a method to do it already.

    Please forgive me for bumping, but it has been a week and a half. Anybody know how to make changes outside cPanel/WHM and get them to stay put?
