In a moment of stupidity, I installed ASSP and disabled spamd etc, to try it out. I did it with ASSPX, a script that claims to make it all very simple: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=591470

Just did not work out for me. Everything was installed, but the ASSP thing for me, after a week or so of "training mode" didn't really cut it for me.

Now I want to uninstall it. I have followed everything I can find on the net. Removed the /assp folder from usr/src completely. Reverted to my old Exim config (thank god for having backed up that). And everything now starts and works.

But my Spam Assassin won't start! Spamd keeps failing. What can I do? Any thoughts?

To fully uninstall ASSP:
Firstly, remove the cron entries (/etc/cron.d/assp)
Secondly, tell ASSP to stop
Code:
/etc/init.d/assp stop
Thirdly, remove the assp directories
Code:
rm -rf /usr/local/assp
Lastly, edit the exim configuration in WHM, remove the lines
Code:
# ASSP connection
local_interfaces = 127.0.0.1
daemon_smtp_ports = 125
then save configuration.

Should be good to go from there. If you want to re-enable spamassassin, you can do so from within WHM.

Note that this doesn't remove the ASSPx stuff, and I don't recommend USING the ASSPx stuff (it's a mess), but it's fairly easy to install ASSP and get it working properly with CPanel.

I've did all this but after that my server stopped to recieve any external mail. All mail get returned to sender with error like this
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

[email protected]

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 550-wr-out-0506.google.com [64.233.184.239]:45919 is currently not permitted to
550-relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap
550-server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned on
550 in your email client.

Then you have something wrong with your system, more likely exim configuration. Reset it to Cpanel's defaults.
