    Go on, have a guess
    Well, You should be able to install exim using the following from the root shell:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/exim4

    What OS are you running ?

    Hi !

    When we tried to install cPanel on a Fedora Core 3 box, exim didn't want to start either, because of SELinux...

    Do you happen to have SELinux enabled ? If so, try to disable it, because cPanel doesn't support it yet.

    Hope this helps

    Also, check in /var/log/exim_mainlog when you start exim.
