    Can Cpanel use sendmail instead of Exim? Meaning that when I add an account, will it use the sendmail configs instead of Exim's?

    Exim can't discard E-mail, and so it's very inefficient at handling SPAM. SpamAssassin is cool, but you still use your box's resources for well known spam. Exim doesn't appear to have a way to just delete messages based on sender address, domain or mailhost.

    I am very familiar with Sendmail, and not at all with Exim. I would prefer to use sendmail if it doesn't take out all the features of actually using Cpanel... ;-)

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    sendmail instead of exim

    So did you ever find out if sendmail proper works with cpanel and how to set it up? I have the same interest in sendmail (specially with ldap support) over exim.

    I would also be very interested in a successful story about using sendmail instead of exim with cPanel...

    Anyone?

    TIA

    Sounds like Sendmail is evolving good, but still it does not support virtual users the way Exim and Qmail does, as far as I know that is.

    The answar is forget about it:)
