    ---------------------

    Every 5 minutes we are getting a mail with above content.
    As suggested in some other forum I tried the following.
    --------
    cd /var/cpanel/serviceauth
    rm -rf exim
    /etc/rc/d/init.d/cpanel restart
    ----------------
    The folder exim was recreated. But the problem continues.
    We continue to get the mails from server.
    Can someone guide how this can be solved.

    Thanks.

    Hello

    verify if you have the log files

    /var/log/exim_mainlog
    /var/log/exim_rejectlog
    /var/log/exim_paniclog

    try

    /scripts/eximup --force

    I have all the above 3 files updated regularly. Should I continue with

    /scripts/eximup --force

    ?

    /scripts/eximup -- force, will only reinstall your mail server.

    No file, email or user configuration will be lost.

    Presently I can not check mails on the mail id which was earlier recieving lot of mails because of this error. But I checked the log files .
    After I did what you have suggested,
    The exim_paniclog and exim_rejectlog have stopped growing.
    The exim_mainlog does NOT have any new errors.

    Thank you very much.
