    I am attempting to add to the first box in the retry section of exim.conf. I have made the changes, after saving the configuration, the section is not updated in exim.conf. Looking into exim.conf.local under @RETRYSTART@, the changes are listed.

    If I make any changes to the second box in exim.conf, those changes are saved in exim.conf, and are also in exim.conf.local under @RETRYEND@.

    For some reason ONLY the information in the @RETRYSTART@ section is not being saved into the final exim.conf. The other sections are being saved fine, so the file is being read. It will even show in the advanced editor if the information is in exim.conf.local.

    Watching the output, it says:
    "Configuration file passes test! New configuration file was installed."
    the configuration is (supposedly) fine!

    I have removed both of the sections from exim.conf.local and saved it, verifying the 2 sections are empty. Gone back to the advanced editor and entered the exact same data into both boxes, and after saving, it is only in exim.conf in the second retry box, but it did save both sections in the exim.conf.local file. The problem is these changes need to be before the default setting.

    The server:
    WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.17.0-R19434
    CENTOS Enterprise 5 x86_64 on virtuozzo - WHM X v3.1.0
    Apache version 2.2.8 (Unix)
    PHP version 5.2.5
    MySQL version 5.0.45-community
    exim 4.68 installer release number 1 for platform centos 5

    Any help on this would be appreciated,
    Ron

    This appears fixed in build 20571. I tested by adding the following to the first box in the Retry section:

    Code:
    *                      *           F,1h,5m; G,10h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h
    
    After saving the changes, I checked /etc/exim.conf and that line was present.

    I updated to:
    WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.17.5-R20571
    CENTOS Enterprise 5 x86_64 on virtuozzo - WHM X v3.1.0

    then I ran exim configuration editor - advanced editor - changing a couple of settings. It still shows these changed settings in the exim editor, but in ssh "cat /etc/exim.conf" the retry section has:
    begin retry
    * quota

    * * F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h

    * quota_7d

    The "* quota" in the first line is automatic from??
    My edits in the first box are not here. (used yours)
    The "default" line is present.
    The last line has "* quota_7d" which was put in the second retry box as a test.

    The exim.conf.local shows:
    @RETRYEND@
    * quota_7d
    @RETRYSTART@
    * * F,1h,5m; G,10h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h

    Only this retryend setting is taking, the retrystart is still ignored. It does show correctly in the exim config screen, it does save the retrystart settings to exim.conf.local, but does not save the retrystart settings to exim.conf.

    I did logout of WHM and log in again to be sure that the upgrade was "complete" and re-ran the exim config with the problem still not resolved.

    Help still needed,
    Thanks,
    Ron

    Problem solved - writes correctly!

    Thank you,
    Ron
