    Hi, I'm running WHM 11.28.83 on a CentOS 5.5 i686 VPS.

    With a fresh install I cannot receive any email from an outside mail server, however local mail works fine (ie emailing yourself). Outgoing mail works fine as well. This is the error I get in exim_mainlog when I try to email my test account (test@*****.net) from my gmail account:

    This is ls -l of exim.crt and exim.key @ /etc
    And @ /var/cpanel/ssl/exim
    Since installing cPanel on this VPS I've had nothing but troubles, first PHP refuses to work with anything unless SuExec is disabled and PHP5 runs on dso, but now exim fails aswell? I've searched the net for a few days, including this forum and I've tried different ways of fixing this (including updating, reinstalling, fixing permissions, etc).


    Okay, so for some weird reason the email went through after 5 failed tries.

    So around 30 minutes later the email gets delivered.


    I can confirm this now, I get the TLS error 5 times and then on the sixth try exim will receive the email sent from gmail (roughly 20-40 minutes later)

    Does anyone have any idea what is going on with exim here?

    If you are still having issues with this, can you check the permissions on the directory itself?

    # ls -ld /var/cpanel/ssl/exim
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 29  2009 /var/cpanel/ssl/exim/
    The directory should be 755 file permissions. If it is 700 or lower, then there will be an issue.
