    if i go to the error line i can see:
    --------
    smtp_banner = "${primary_hostname} ESMTP Exim ${version_number} \
    \#${compile_number} ${tod_full} \n\
    We do not authorize the use of this
    -------

    not sure what's wrong. Never changed anything!

    just check another server and it seems it should the following way:

    -------------
    smtp_banner = "${primary_hostname} ESMTP Exim ${version_number} \
    \#${compile_number} ${tod_full} \n\
    We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, \n\
    and/or bulk e-mail."

    -------------
    but now error is:
    -------------
    Shutting down exim: [FAILED]
    Shutting down antirelayd: [ OK ]
    Shutting down spamd: [FAILED]
    Starting exim: 2004-04-01 13:33:49 Exim configuration error in line 69:
    main option "system" unknown
    [FAILED]
    Starting exim-smtps: 2004-04-01 13:33:49 Exim configuration error in line 69:
    main option "system" unknown
    [FAILED]
    Starting antirelayd: [ OK ]
    ----------


    does anyone have an idea how to fix?

    We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, \n\
    and/or bulk e-mail."

    Restalling protocol is never the appropriate answer. In this case, it's highly doubtful it would have helped. That's as bad as "My IE won't start properly" "well, reload windows".
