    I installed SIM & the default path to the SMTP service init script they had is SMTP_INIT="/etc/init.d/sendmail" but that is not right. Should I replace it with /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim or /etc/init.d/exim or something else?

    Go on, have a guess
    Personally, I wouldn't recommend running SIM. It does cause conflicts on cPanel servers, especially with chkservd, IMX.

    I find chkservd works just fine. And, yes, it can hurt things. I've found many servers with apache going up and down because of a conflict between SIM and chkservd if they run at the same time.

    Can you configure chkservd to send emails like SIM does?

    It should do this by default. Manually take a service off line and try it. You could always set SIM to monitor, report, but not restart.

    chkservd always has and always should send you an email when it restarts services. They're delivered to the root account which get forwarded to whichever account you have setup root's email to be forwarded to in WHM.
