    Seems like every fscking day I get one of my servers bouncing stuff it should not bounce. Today, I getting all these errors form email forwards that were working for weeks:

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    pipe to |/home/qzhost/www/esupport/admin/pop3pipe.php
    generated by support@my_domain.com
    local delivery failed

    Normally a bunch of stupid Cpanel stuff works like:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/upcp
    /scrtps/exim4

    Then re-installing mailscanner

    <sarcasm>I am starting to really enjoy doing this almost every week on one of my server </sarcasm>

    Why so many freaking problems? It seems like it is an /etc/eximmailtrapp issue on one, the track the origin of sender on the other. Verify sender on the other....

    Sorry for my ranting, I normally praise the software but I just don't know what the fsck is up this time :(

    Found out that piping across domains is not possible anymore. So I adapted to it...

    I'm in the same boat, wasted a entire night last night trying to fix Exim thanks to the update that broke it, with no luck. Now I'll probably spend all day on it. Email addresses are just randomly working now, that have worked fine for years.

    Reinstalled Exim, reinstalled Cpanel, trying all the different releases. Nothing fixes the problem thus far, even recreating the email accounts does not help.

    :(

    on most all of mine I have to do this and it tends to fix it...

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/upcp
    /scripts/exim4

    Then since I have mailscanner I reinstall it JIC.

    cd /usr/src/mailscanner
    ./install

    Then I find it fixes it. Maybe that heps you :)

    Good luck!

    I did all that, didnt work. Finally figured it out, update broke my spam filters I put in. Removed them and all works fine again. Now I just gotta figure out where the conflict is, so I can have my filters working and not the problem.

    You may try this then:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/upcp
    /scripts/exim4

    cd /usr/src
    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/mailscanner-autoinstall-1.5.tar.gz
    tar zxvf mailscanner-autoinstall-1.5.tar.gz
    (I would make sure you don't have the old tarball or this will be saved as mailscanner-autoinstall-1.5.tar.gz.1)
    ./mailscanner/install

    As in, make sure you got the last one. Sometimes PERL issues mess up EXIM also (I noticed). Hope this helps :)
