    Hi all,

    One of box was running exim (4.42+27). just now, exim was dead.
    running /scripts/exim4 fixed.
    exim (4.42+27) ---> exim-4.43+28

    Looks like related with spamd...


    Just a note for FreeBSD users.

    Thanks.

    Yep, this is a major problem. We have to reinstall exim with the script above on one server atleast once a week. Had to do one last night.

    EXIM is dead on my BSD box too this morning..
    WHM 9.7.2 cPanel 9.7.7-R16
    FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE i386 - WHM X v3.1.0

    running /scripts/exim4 results in:

    ===> An older version of security/openssl is already installed (openssl-overwrite-base-0.9.7d)
    You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
    by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
    If you really wish to overwrite the old port of security/openssl
    without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
    in your environment or the "make install" command line.
    *** Error code 1

    Stop in /usr/ports/security/openssl.
    *** Error code 1

    I'm not sure how to go about fixing this, because my versions appear to be *newer* than the ones it wants:

    mod_ssl 2.8.18 installed: 2.8.19
    OpenSSL 0.9.7a installed: 0.9.7d

    any ideas?

    ok, followed the instructions in the last email in that thread (I also did not have "WITH_OPENSSL_BASE" line in my /etc/make.conf file)
    then i ran /scripts/exim4 and exim appeared to have compiled and started fine, but in WHM, both EXIM and EXIM-26 still show as "failed" in "Service Status".

    I can access email via Neomail, but both Horde and Squirrelmail are now broken.

    I'm going to try /scripts/upcp again, but this is not making any sense to me...
