For cPanel & WHM 11.42

(Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager >> Domains and IPs)

Overview

To select domains and IPs:

  1. Click the Domains and IPs tab.
  2. Click the appropriate button for each option.
  3. Click Save.

 

Send mail from account’s dedicated IP address

This option allows you to automatically send outgoing mail from your account's IP address instead of the main IP address. If you enable this option, /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updateuserdomains will automatically populate /etc/mailhelo and /etc/mailips, which will prevent the use of the other two options in the Domains and IPs section.

Warning:

If you turn on this setting, make sure the reverse DNS entries your provider has on file match those in the /etc/mail_reverse_dns file. For more information about how to configure reverse DNS entries, read our How to Configure Reverse DNS for BIND in WHM documentation.

 

Reference /etc/mailhelo for outgoing SMTP HELO

HELO is a command sent before an email which specifies the name of the sending domain.

This option allows you to send a HELO that is based on the domain name in the /etc/mailhelo file.

For more information about how to edit this file, read our How to Configure the Exim Outgoing IP Address documentation

Reference /etc/mailips for outgoing SMTP connections

This option allows you to send outgoing mail from the IP address that matches the domain name in the /etc/mailips file.
