    Cannot rebuild exim

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to follow this guide with no luck.
    When I run ./build exim_conf I'm getting the following error:

    Your version of Exim does not support SPF, which is needed for Easy Spam Fighter. Please updat
    e exim using the CustomBuild script: ./build exim.

    Then I run just ./build exim and getting the following results/error:

    root@is-26285:/usr/local/directadmin/custombuild# ./build exim
    Found /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/exim-4.87.tar.gz

    Change the download server in directadmin conf from "files4." to another.
    CB doesn't seem to automaticly switch to a different server that 'is' online but still tries to apply the update, which then fails.

    IMO, the CB updatescript should stop (or check first) when/if a DA-update mirrorserver is not found, or fallback to the main-update server "files1".
