    I would like to stop Exim for a short time while switching to a new server. What command will do this, and once I stop it, how do I prevent cPanel from starting it again? Thanks

    For stop exim type this:

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim stop

    Exim will not start until you type this

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim start

    ;)

    You will have to stop chkserv or else that will restart Exim:

    service chkservd stop

    Once you've completed the move and you would like to start mail & chkserv back up, use:

    service chkservd start

    It will automatically start mail for you.
