    I'm reposting it here hoping it will get the attention of Cpanel developers, since I haven't heard a word from them so far regarding this issue (or any other, for that matter).

    =====
    Bandwidth is also being counted for messages that were NOT effectively delivered! For instance, take a look at this exim_mainlog entry:

    2003-04-21 14:36:19 196IB9-00017W-00 == XXXX@XXXX T=remote_smtp defer (110): Connection timed out: SMTP timeout while connected to mx.XXX.com [200.XXX.XXX.XXX] after DATA

    (XXX for anonymity). Although this message was NOT delivered, its byte size was added to the domain's SMTP bandwidth count!!!

    This is due to the fact that, as dictated in /etc/exim.conf, routers "lookuphost" and "literal", through the "condition" directive, call perl function "checkspam" (from /etc/exim.pl), which logs the bandwidth. But that happens BEFORE any attempt to deliver the message is made!

    I've commented out the SMTP bandwidth logging code from /etc/exim.pl as a quick fix. But when can we expect a definitive solution?

    Thanks, I've done that for a previous bug I found. USELESS! The support technician kept trying to close the ticket, asking: "Are you still having this problem?", as if the bug would disappear by magic.

    Seems it's the only way to submit a bug now.

    Yeah! I won't bother, though. Pity Bugzilla got dumped...
