    If you can go to shell try this.
    Service exim restart.

    or, you can use:
    service exim stop then,
    service exim start

    only hope now may be.

    service exim stop.

    /scripts/exim4

    This will reinstall exim again and should remove any/all problems.
    You might want to completely delete the mail queue before doing this,.... no real reason why. I just like to stop exim and clean out the old before starting the new.

    Just to verify...

    If you are on a VPS the SMTP tweak will cause exim to appear dwn.

    I got the same issure.

    Tried service exim stop or start

    and I get a command not found.

    Tried the WHM restart, tried /scripts/exim4 and reinstall it, tried graceful reboot.

    Any ideas what I can try next?

    I'm a complete newbie and have been doing this for less than 2 weeks, so you may have to be a little more detailed than normal.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Hi,

    same issue here,
    I just did all tricks posted here but still the same result, exim status failed

    reinstall exim and so on
    weird thing are this error when resintalling exim:

    Can't connect at /scripts/restartsrv line 242, <TAIL> line 1929.
    error: execution of %post scriptlet from exim-4.24-30_cpanel_stmpcontrol_antivirus_rewrite_mailman2 failed, exit status 111

    Can't connect at /scripts/restartsrv line 242, <TAIL> line 1929.

    but install successful

    and I run:

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim status
    exim (pid 2579 2578 2577 2576 1059 1050 1049) is running.

    yet status in WHM still failed:
    exim (exim-4.24-30_cpanel_stmpcontrol_antivirus_rewrite_mailman2) failed

    reinstalling cpanel RELEASE same result
    cpanel STABLE same result

    any clue?

    TIA
    Brumie
