    Did you make any changes to the exim configs? cPanel by default is not an open relayer, so unless you opened it up it should still not be an open relay.

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed. I'd suggest that you return your exim configuration to the default as this is something you must have done yourself (unless your server has been compromised).
