    cPanel usually keeps a backup config file lying around.

    ls -la /etc/ | grep exim

    cPanels backup files are usually appended to with a - or a , or a ; Find one of those or use one of your backups and copy it to /etc/exim.conf.

    If you don't have either of those, reply with the version of Exim you're running and I'm sure someone will post their entire config here for you. Then just copy & paste it onto your box.

    Hi, RHG
    try this
    If you're using exim4, run /scripts/exim3 then /scripts/exim4. This should recreate the configs necessary for you.
    If you're running exim3, then /scripts/exim4, and /scripts/exim3 after that.

    The only thing you'll lose is the custom settings (rbls and whatnot) that you had in there
