    I'd like to have smtp_enforce_sync = true, however by doing so it shows exim as down in the whm service page. It is up however.

    Is there any way to resolve this?

    I doubt it since chkservd simply sends the commands to the port and by definition that command will cause problems. Do you have some specific requirement to use it? It's a rather obscure way to prevent spam. You could remove the exim checking from chkservd.

    Obscure, but perfectly within the specs. We've considering removing the check, but I haven't decided yet. For now I'm blocking port 25/26 for manually confirmed spammers/abusers's IPs and that works well.

    I've changed my smtp_enforce_sync to true and no problems here...

    I'd like to know if there's other problmes on doing it? Performance? mail crash? Mail relay?
    Why this is "obscure"?
    :rolleyes:
    Thanks!

    I theory that option is a very good idea. In practice, there are some MTA's that ignore that RFC requirement, so you do run the risk losing legitimate email.
