    Since upgrading to exim4, SMTP has been unavailable:

    fixed_login authenticator failed for (bob) [255.255.255.255]: 535 Incorrect authentication data (set_id=bob@domain.com)

    Anyone have any solutions or similar encounters? I am using the default exim.conf that Cpanel setup

    God Bless Darren :)

    He mentioned that exim couldn't read the shadow file, and a quick chmod 755 /home/* cured it

    That does sound odd? Solution anyway, if not the problem.

    By default, WHM creates 711 permissions for all Cpanel user directories and this is the way all mine are -- with no problems?

    WHM 7.1.0 cPanel 7.1.5-E37

    Is what I upgraded to, a week ago, and a few days ago upgraded Exim to 170.

    With all the other problems people seem to be having with upgrades, it looks like it may be a long, long time, before I do any more upgrades. ;)
