    After installing MailScanner, my SMTP stopped working. I can't send mails even with the correct authentication.

    My account (me@mydomain.com) is able to retrieve mails from POP but not able to send mails through SMTP, even with the same username and password.

    Please help.

    Try an Exim install without the mailscanner "plugin". i.e. /scripts/exim4

    If after this you still can't relay mail, then there is something else wrong not associated with exim or mailscanner.

    Thanks for the tip. The problem before was that there was a hung exim process and the exim binary was corrupted during the cpanel "fix". I had to remove the binary, kill the client processes and then reinstall exim.
