I started getting a new exim error today. The mail queue fills with emails that result in this error when trying to manually deliver them. These errors follow exim failures and cpu loads of 433.12 and then I reboot to regain control of the system. I will also open a ticket if allowed.

Message 1CrwEB-0001OM-P0 is not frozen

Thanks, that was the root cause of that particular problem. However This afternoon I started getting a whole new issue. It takes a hard reset (reboot) in order to gain control of the server again and that only lasts from 15-60 minutes before it all starts over again.

Look at these stats...

exim (exim-4.44-0_cpanel_smtpctl_av_rewrite_mm2_mmmtrap_exiscan_md5pass) failed
Server Load 340.32 (1 cpu)

Any additional ideas on this cause?

That error is because spamd is not installed.

The installation is hanging due to a CPAN error.

Follow the steps

1 - perl -MCPAN -e 'install HTML::Tagset;'
2 - /scripts/installspam
3 - /scripts/restartsrv_spamd
4 - /etc/init.d/exim restart
5 - /etc/init.d/cpanel restart

Done
