    But exim is alive and kicking on the box. Tried upcp, eximup --force, restarting multiple times - still says down yet the email flows like spammy wine. Anyone else see this in new CP11?

    This happening for a long time? Chkservd only runs every 8 minutes so results could be not up to date. If it's showing as down for a long period of time while up, please submit a ticket.

    Thanks

    Hrm, reboot cleared it up. No idea what was up... Oh well, will keep an eye on this box and repost if happens again. :)

    Did you try to restart chkservd when you see exim is down in WHM but actually is running?

    Yep, first thing I tried. Showed restarted fine, but still showed down. Waited a bit and still showed down. Waited an hour still showed down but all was working fine. Little bit later I restarted just to see and showed working then. Still no idea but haven't seen the problem since... Weird!

    Go on, have a guess
    You need to check your /var/log/chkservd.log and see if it shows why the check is failing. chkservd attempts a connection to port 25 and looks for the 220 response code. You can try this yourself:

    telnet localhost 25

    It should reply with something like:

    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220-homer.webumake.net ESMTP Exim 4.66 #1 Mon, 16 Jul 2007 10:21:13 +0100
    220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
    220 and/or bulk e-mail.

    If it doesn't, then that's a problem. If it does, try disabling ASSP (which interferes with the SMTP connections into your SMTP server) and see if the issue improves.

    Hi,

    Chirpy as u recommend i try this:
    telnet localhost 25
    And i got this:
    [root@fusion ~]# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220-fusion.reactorhosting.info ESMTP Exim 4.66 #1 Tue, 17 Jul 2007 11:19:29 -0500
    220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
    220 and/or bulk e-mail.
    So exim is working properly.

    Anyone has a clue on this matter.:confused:

    Thx for all the help.
