Hello friends,

Can you help me, please?

I had access WHM > Exim Configuration Editor > Switch to Advanced Mode > Save....

It appears this error:

2006-05-25 19:09:40 Exim configuration error in line 905 of /etc/exim.conf.buildtest:
user mailman was not found

REMOVE everything from all the boxes in the editor. Then save it. That will restore the default settings for Exim.

The problem lies within the default exim.conf. I have everything removed, but it is not recognizing user mailman.

I don't use mailman on my servers, so I simply commented out:

# user = mailman
# group = mailman

Below:

mailman_virtual_transport:

and

mailman_virtual_transport_nodns:

You'll probably have to chattr +i /etc/exim.conf

otherwise cPanel will overwrite this on any upcp. I don't believe you can change this in the Exim configuration editor, it's not one of the text boxes. I wouldn't recommend this if you use mailman, as I'm not sure of the consequences. However, I did try enabling mailman prior to doing this and it didn't seem to correct the syntax error.

Boy, lots of fun bugs with this new release.

Not sure why, but the Exim Configuration editor seems to be loading :

/etc/exim.conf.mailman2.dist

as the default template.

I (after backing up, just in case):

rm /etc/exim.conf.mailman2.dist
rm /etc/exim.conf.mailman2.exiscan.dist

and the exim configuration editor seems to load exim.conf.dist now. This seems to be a better solution than my post above.
