    I check again using Exim Configuration Editor >> Switch to advanced mode and now the third box always shows default ruleset and another box still have my ruleset.

    Try to change the third box again and click save, all ruleset i put in third box back to default ruleset.

    Same thing here. I upgraded 3 servers from Stable120 to Current and broke the Exim Configuration Editor on one of them. I had to change that one back to Stable120 to fix it.

    Hi Yah,

    Only way we resolved it was to downgrade from latest current to latest release and then add in all our ACL's again. Even our NOC were scratching their heads...

    Nope, I was wrong. All three servers I upgraded from Stable_120 to Current_472 or latest Edge broke the Configuration Editor .
    Had to downgrade back to Stable_120 to fix it, now I'm having issues with native SSL

    root@server [~]# ./cpsrvd-ssl --bincheck
    -bash: ./cpsrvd-ssl: No such file or directory

    You try to ugrade then something breaks then you downgrade then something breaks.

    same issue here with trying to edit the exim config in advanced mode. Changes do not stay after being saved with 10.8.2-C472

    Went to 10.8.2-C482 and still will not save config.


    Anyone have any idea other than rolling back to older version?

    IIRC, there was a problem in at least one of the recent EDGE builds that corrupted /etc/exim.conf.local which is what the exim configuration editor uses. You'll need to check it and repair the corruption.

    Just checked and the corruption looks something like (at the tope - don't know if the forum software will show it right):

    Code:
    %¬LBLOCK%
    It should read:

    Code:
    %ACLBLOCK%
    Then remember to run:

    /scripts/buildeximconf
    service exim restart

    Chirpy,

    I found the above and did replace it with the right read then ran buildeximconf and restart exim, went back in, added my rbl stuff, saved and went back to advanced mode and it still did not save my entry.


    So no go on that fix.

    Looks like the bug is still in the code then. I'd suggest logging it with cPanel for them to fix it. In the meantime, you'll have to edit exim.conf.local instead of using the WHM editor.

    Does anyone know if the Exim Configuration Editor is fixed in lastest Current or Edge ?
    We downgraded our servers to Stable_120 but now two of them when using 2087 and 2083 have an issue due to the new native SSL replacing Stunnel

    Thanks

    dont use cpanel

    If I were you I would just modify the exim.conf directly via SSH.

    cd /etc
    pico exim.conf

    make your changes and save the file.

    service exim restart

    voila!

    I never have any luck with the exim configuration tool in cpanel.

    That's a very bad idea indeed. If you have problems with the current Exim Configuration Editor, you're much better off editing exim.conf.local as I said above and rebuild. If you just edit exim.conf you can end up with a very broken system when upcp next decides to rebuild it. IIRC, only the interface changes need you to edit exim.conf (though I seem to remember a workaround) anything else should be possible using the editor....normally.
