Christmas 2023

We are taking a break for the Christmas holiday and will close the store, helpdesk and email from 17:00 GMT on Friday, 22nd December 2023, until 09:00 on Tuesday, 02 January 2024. If you purchase a license or Service Package before the closing date and require installation, please be sure to leave at least 24-48 hours before we close for the work to be done. Otherwise, any work will be scheduled for after this period. We wish all of you a very happy winter holiday season!

Warning: Exim v4.97 breaks MailScanner

An update that was made to exim v4.97 has broken the functionality of MailScanner. The update has made the exim Message ID a different length which MailScanner cannot process.

Currently, this issue does not affect cPanel, but does affect DirectAdmin if exim is upgraded to this version. The symptoms are that MailScanner fails to process emails in the queue with errors in the logs stating that it cannot find the ID related spool file.

We have released a modification to MailScanner that addresses this issue:

New csf v14.20


  • Modified MaxMind URLs to use https
  • Fixed DOCTYPE print order for integrated UI login
  • Added “Require all granted” to Messenger v3 .htaccess generation
  • Normalise source IP during connection tracking for IPv6 comparisons
  • Fixed regression for some IMAP logon failure detections
