Ok, what is happen is cpanel doesn't care that postfix is install, it
replaces every time with exim every time it does it own update. I was
hoping that there was a way to stop cpanel from replacing postfix by
editing one of the apt conf files. That what going on guys. I am not
doing the install. It's cpanel.

I like to know what is the simplest way to tell apt-get not to install
exim. I have try to google, but most of the stuff I am reading makes it
sound like you can't tell apt-get not to install app.
aptitude hold postfix
will that not prevent him from getting postfix updates?
so far as I know, postfix provides "mail-transport-agent" so if
postfix is installed, anything that depends on "mta" should be
happy. There may be something else going on there with some packages
in your install specifying exim instead of mta
