    Hi, I've recently uploaded to WHM 11.23.2 cPanel 11.23.3-S25971 and checking all the new features. Looks great!

    At Tweak Settings I don't understand what have the item "Exim Stats Daemon (required for smtp bandwidth logging; must also be modified in the service manager as well)" to do if tailwatchd is enabled. I understand that tailwatchd replaces Eximstats, cPBandwd and Antirelayd. In fact, they are now built-in functions of tailwatchd, is it correct? Thus, if Eximstats is enabled in tailwatch at Service Manager, if I disable Exim stats in tweak settings will that impact in tailwatchd? or is it now deprecated?

    Looks like we missed that. Thank you for pointing it out, I'm investigating it now.

    Update:

    Disabling exim stats in Tweak Settings with also disable it in Service Manager. It is retained in Tweak Settings for Backwards compatibility.

    ok, I see. I assume you refer to "Backwards compatibility" as of the WHM GUI only. correct? If so, a short comment in that Tweak Settings item refering to use the Service Manager entry for Tailwatchd would give a clearer scenario for novice users. ;)

    Correct, it is for the WHM GUI. I've entered a case for the developers about removing the Tweak Setting option as it is rather redundant. Especially since the wording no longer matches the end result.
