    As of Monday morning (2/18/08), I've been getting a ton of these reports stating that "exim failed, a restart was attempted automagicly" and the same for spamd. I've also seen an increase in the amount of spam received server-wide.

    The wide majority of these reports, and the subsequent spam, are coming in between midnight and 7am. I do have SpamAssassin on most of the email accounts, set to automatically delete.

    Is there an update that I should be running on this to correct this problem? Or, did cPanel update something on Sunday / Monday that's failing? I'm currently running WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.11.0-S16999.

    TIA,

    Jason

    I am also seeing many more exim restarts recently. Something has definetely changed which is causing exim instability (or an new exploit is causing a DOS)

    I've seen five exim failures in one day so far..

    I'm running Mailscanner not Spamd

    Cheers

    exim failures

    Noone has any ideas why exim keeps on failing? Should I log a ticket?

    One of my server also keeps failing every 10-15 minutes in 3 days now.

    I'm using :
    WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.18.3-S21703
    CENTOS Enterprise 4.6 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    It's look like something changed on exim after cpanel update 3 days ago which is causing exim failed frequently.

    Thanks cPanelDavidG,

    After edit exim.conf from advanced editor and remove all delays parameter and added smtp_accept_max = 150, exim not failed again.

    But i have to wait until next cpanel update. If this problem happen again, i will submit a support ticket.
