    Another Exim issue. Ever since the Exim420 upgrade last night, my ModernBill is failing to send emails (invoices). Anyone have any idea what broke last night?

    I really need to get paid by my customers, but if I can't get their invoices sent, it makes it much harder!

    It appears the sendmail_path line in php.ini got modified andf had a semi-colon at the end of it. I removed it and restarted Apache and all is fine now.

    ; is just to indicate a start of a comment

    simillar to // in C++
    It should not be the reason.

    I have the same problem, thought not only in Modernbilling, but in all of PHP.

    Even your solution doesn't work...

    mpierre: Did you notice the php mail() Sticky in the General forum? Go read it and then try it? Maybe that'll help? Hope so!

    sexy_guy: :rolleyes: It's not Exim4.. It's you. If it runs fine for me, then why doesn't it run for you? :D

    Hate to break it to you, but the line looked like this:


    sendmail_path = exim -t -i ;


    We removed everything after the '-i' and then restarted Apache (and yes, we restarted Apache prior to making the change as well to no avail) and then everything started working.

    The removal of the spaces and the semicolon did indeed fix the problem. Seemed odd to us as well, but we've seen stranger things than this with CP/WHM before.

    It doesnt run fine for you because there are more people who have problems with it then those who dont. It runs fine for you because you dont know any better.

    sendmail_path should not be exim since this is not a path.

    It seems you have an old php.ini. I had this version but it was later modified again to be:

    sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i ;
    This should work with or without the semi colon.
