    Exim is the MTA ( Mail Transfer Agent ) that is used on cpanel servers to transfer mail from one server to the next ( Usually then received by a client ). You will need exim running in order to use the sendmail executeable, and in order to receive & send mail on your server ( be it neomail, squirelmail, outlook, etc. ).
