    We recently noticed that our /var/log/exim_panic was filling up with the following error:

    Code:
    Exim configuration error in line 1217 of /etc/exim.conf: user mailman was not found
    
    Line 1217 contains:
    Code:
        user = mailman
    
    and finally, mailman user does exist as seen below:
    Code:
    mailman:x:32001:32001::/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman:/bin/bash
    
    any ideas please?

    PS:
    we have disabled mailing list support from WHM since we don't need it and its one of the worst things to run on a VPS, it takes too much memory and cpu to run it.
