    To install exim do the following:

    cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
    ./build exim

    I see this too...... It's weird that you need to manually build exim afterwards.......

    ./build set exim yes
    ./build set eximconf yes
    ./build set eximconf_release 4.5
    ./build set spamassassin yes
    ./build update
    ./build exim
    ./build exim_conf

    Maybe the options need to be set before actual building. However, I'd hoped CB2 will at least build exim with some defaults (eg. exim.conf 2.8) then let us set what we require afterwards.

    Think this is a CB2 thing.
