    Could the fact that i stopped the repair mailbox permissions half way through be causing this?

    Hint!

    Try this:

    - netstat -tnalp | grep :110

    if it's showing you in the last column xinetd then read below, else this will not help you.
    Do this commands:
    - /etc/init.d/xinetd stop
    - cd /etc/xinetd.d/
    - search for files named *pop3* or *pop3s*
    - edit them and search for "disabled = no" line. Modify it to "disabled = yes"
    - /etc/init.d/xinetd start
    - /scripts/restartsrv_cppop

    I am having this issue email can't be sent out from the server or received.

    the command you gave displays this
    Code:
    tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:110                 0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN     1941/couriertcpd
    
    Anyone know any way to fix this

    All emails get retry timeout exceeded

    Hint!

    Please try the following:

    # rpm -qa | grep exim
    # rpm -e exim-4.52-15_cpanel_maildir (exim-4.52-15_cpanel_maildir is what the previous command returned to me)
    This is the output i received when i've runned the 2nd command
    # rpm -e exim-4.52-15_cpanel_maildir mdadm-1.6.0-3.i386 mutt-1.4.1-11.rhel4.i386 fetchmail-6.2.5-6.el4.2.i386 fetchmail-6.2.5-6.i386... (you got the idea)
    # /scripts/eximup --force

    I guess this will do it. I'm not sure it's the best way to reinstall exim, but it's the only one i know. I've tested it, no accounts/settings were lost on my servers.

    Look into the log files for any errors that might help in troubleshooting the problem you have in hand. Do NOT un-install exim using the rpm -e command without knowing the real cause of your problem. The local path to Exim log files is: (assuming you guys have Linux distribution and not FreeBSD):
    /var/log/exim_mainlog
    /var/log/maillog

    Have you tried re-installing exim using this command:
    /scripts/eximup --force
