I have changed specific SMTP listen IP on exim.conf other than server main/shared IP
After that i received exim failed so many mails. But i'm sure i can send mail using SMTP 25/443
WMH/cPanel status monitor only check on main/shared IP? How can i fix this?

exim failed @ Sat Apr 30 08:33:33 2011. A restart was attempted automagically.
Service Check Method: [tcp connect]

Failure Reason: Unable to connect to port 25

exim-443 failed @ Sat Apr 30 08:33:33 2011. A restart was attempted automagically.
Service Check Method: [tcp connect]

Failure Reason: Unable to connect to port 443

Port 443 is used by https service, so exim cannot be running on port 443 as well. If you want to use an alternate exim port, you would need to select something like 587 instead. You would receive failures if you are trying to run exim on the Apache https port 443.

As for the main IP, normally those services check localhost rather than the IP, so can you telnet on localhost to port 25?

Code:
telnet localhost 25
