    What does safe disabling "Introduce a delay into the SMTP transaction for unknown hosts and messages detected as spam" in "WHM >> Exim Configuration Manager"? Do we have any security issue from RBL block?

    I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but that setting is explained a bit more, here:
    Exim Configuration Manager - Basic Editor - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Hello,

    There are no specific security issues when disabling this option, however it does make the server more vulnerable to SPAM.

    Thank you.
