    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate if this only happens after converting the key for use with Putty? For instance, are you able to reproduce it when using an alternate SSH client? Did you authorize the key when creating it in WHM?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Can you please let me know where are you getting this error ?

    Correct exim log file path is /var/log/exim_mainlog

    Code:
    whoami
    
    ls -ld /var/log/exim_mainlog
    
    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog

    Hello :)

    The correct path is /var/log/exim_mainlog and you need to view it with a command such as "exigrep" or "tail".

    Thank you.
