    Hi all ,

    The latest Cpanel updates seems to be causing some troubles ( atleast for me ).
    I am using RH 8.0 with WHM 7.4.2

    ok .. now there are a couple of issues here
    1. Every time I do a cpanel update Exim 4 is not working
    so I had to run the /scripts/reseteximtodefaults

    2. ok .. that's fine .. I don't have much problems with the
    Exim 3.x .. But whenever Exim is restarting /etc/relayhosts
    is being rewritten by some more than 20 hosts & IPs.
    Does it mean that my machine will act as mail relay for
    these 20+ hosts ??
    What is it that I can do now inorder to recover from this ??

    Dear ibmbhasi,

    Please provide us with the error messages you get while restarting exim after cpanel update also provide us with log messages in case of restart failure.

    To overcome the second problem, you can disable the write permissions for all to the file /etc/relayhosts.
