    Go on, have a guess
    No, it's not possible if you still want to use the cPanel front-end and the other email functionality of cPanel as a whole. Exim is the MTA of choice for cPanel.

    To answer your question, a competing control panel named Plesk uses Qmail!

    More information: http://www.swsoft.com/plesk

    Personally I don't think Plesk is as good a control panel as Cpanel and is
    lacking a lot of features. The company where I work used to be
    100% Plesk based but we converted everything over to Cpanel
    about a year ago and have been much happier on Cpanel.

    Is there a specific reason why you want to use Qmail?

    There is two ways that you can setup the mailboxes with Cpanel and Exim ....
    One way is to use a mailbox file (mbox) for email account and the other
    preferred way is to use a set of directory folders for mail (maildir). The
    second method I speak of is virtually identical to how Qmail operates.

    We have all of our Cpanel servers configured with the newer maildir
    configuration and it operates EXACTLY like Qmail. I personally have
    a great many years experience with Qmail and I'm right at home in
    this configuration.

    Unless you enjoy being a non-recognised beta testor for substandard products, I would avoid Plesk. They are earning a well-deserved reputation on their own support forums as inferior, due to their unwillingness to release stable software, and instead releasing a beta product as "stable release" and then observing the bugs that are reported, and releasing a "patch" several months later.
    QMAIL is also hideously outdated, and even those who have it now are asking that Plesk switch over to a better mail environment.
