    My service status from cPanel shows my exim has
    failed. So I run /scripts/exim4 and exim fails to start:

    Go on, have a guess
    You need to looks in the exim log file to find out what the error is that it is failing on:
    /var/log/exim_mainlog
    /var/log/exim_paniclog

    Update: Looking over my results some more, it said it
    couldn't parse /etc/clamav.conf . So I looked at that file
    and there was a line it said to remove towards the top,
    the only thing on this line was the word 'Example', so
    I commented out this line, ran service exim restart again,
    and this time it showed everything shutting down and
    starting ok. But when I go into my WHM it still shows exim
    has failed and no email is being delivered.

    Very common minor problem, just restart chkservd or wait a few minutes and should reset itself :)

    I've had this problem for several days now and after
    looking at my exim_mainlog it looks like I am being
    hit with a ton of spam email. So I have contacted my
    provider to look into this.
