The connection to the server has failed. Account: '[email protected]', Server: 'mail.somedomain.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

The above error keeps happening once in a while on my servers (both running WHM 8.5.1 cPanel 8.5.3-S3 and WHM 8.5.4 cPanel 8.5.4-R72). Each time it happens, I have to restart the EXIM.

Some other time, my clients get error retrieving POP emails so I have to restart POP3 server and EXIM.

This is getting very unstable. At least once every 2 days. Anyone having this problem?
