    When you use the following within whm :
    Service Configuration -> Service Manager

    and you make a "SAVE" with "exim on another port " DISABLED

    then in all cases WHM start a exim process on port 26 !

    Is there a way to avoid that ?

    For the moment i need to kill the process for port 26.

    Thanks

    WHM 10.6.0 cPanel 10.6.0-C197

    What makes you believe that Exim is running on port 26 as well as 25?

    When you check the processes running on the server, you can easily find that a exim process is running on port 26.

    See hereafter after a "save" with "exim on port 26" DISABLED

    5 S mailnull 4513 1 0 69 0 - 1780 do_sel Sep13 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/exim -bd -q60m
    5 S mailnull 4521 1 0 69 0 - 1773 do_sel Sep13 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/exim -tls-on-connect -bd -oX 465
    5 S mailnull 3177 1 0 69 0 - 1773 do_sel 18:01 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/exim -oX 26 -bd

    The last line says that : exim is waiting on port 26 and i don't want that.(Disabled within WHM configuration !)

    Regards.

    Go on, have a guess
    I've noticed that actually. Must be a bug with the cPanel exim starter when you update the service manager. You should be able to have it start correctly by running:

    service exim restart
