My server is running Fedora and my email doesnt work.

Exim is running apparently correctly according to the WHM, however I cant connect to send email via SMTP on it on the default port 25. I loaded it on port 26 as well and that works to send email.
However all php scripts and frontpage forms do not send mail. FPMail extensions and the php scripts are all correct and working properly without errors but the emails just dont get sent.

I have tried a number of things, i did eximup and even --force it and it reloaded fine without errors. I have looked through the forums for a bit and tried other fixes but none have helped..

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Well first off, your ISP is probably blocking your outbound access to port 25
so it is no surprise sending mail to your server wouldn't work on that port
and probably has nothing to do with your server.

Now regarding the second half of what you said, I would take a look at your mail
options in "Tweak Settings" and see if you are preventing user "nobody" from
being able to send mail and also look at your "Tweak Security" and see if
you have the SMTP security tweak enabled.

(Both of those could effect your scripts being able to send outbound mail if enabled)

And of course, preventing "nobody" from sending email also suggest you must run PHP with PHPsuexec enabled..
