    Last night,i tried to install postfix on my server.
    but i have gave up.
    i want to use exim.

    from then on,i cant use exim any more.
    and cant send any mail.

    when i restart exim in WHM,it says

    Service: [exim] has been disabled by the sys admin

    so how can i enabled it once more?

    thank you very very much.
    sorry my poor English.

    You just can't install mail servers over each other. This is not one or two commands to fix the problem. The cPanel is not 100% compatible with Postfix. Your server is a mess and you'll have to un-install Postfix, clean up. Then, you can re-install Exim.

    runnig postfix and exim

    On the most current version of cpanel, can you run postfix on a separate port but still run exim on the standard email port? I have a bulk mailer that requires postfix.

    Unless you completely disable Exim, otherwise you won't be able to run Postfix. In other words, you can't run two different Mail servers at the same time on one server. In addition, you can't switch back and forth.

    The only way I can see what you want to do work is to get a seperate virtual machine(like xen) for the postfix engine, that way it won't interfere with your cpanel.

    On the other hand, make sure that service manager lists exim as allowed so it will be able to start.
