exim4u smarthost configuration

Daniel-2
Hi Guys!

I would like to use Exim4U server for only receiving mail and use a smarthost for outgoing mail.
How can this be achieved? The smarthost does not require authentication, but I would like the users to authenticate the same way as they did with an original installation.

Thank you,
Daniel

I don't understand your question. If the Exim4U server is not the outgoing smarthost then you would just configure the user's mail clients accordingly to send outgoing mail to the other machine.

Hi Gordon!

Thank you very much for your answer!

There was a thread earlier:
http://users.exim4u.org/template/NamlServlet.jtp?macro=user_nodes&user=436100

William wanted to do something similar and also achieved it.

For the spamlist problem I have there are two solutions:
1. Use another IP from Exim4U, which you say that MULTI_IP will solve.
I probably need to upgrade to newer version, because I don't have the option to assign an IP to the domains. Do you know why?

2. Use Exim4U for receiving and temporarily set a smarthost for it, so that when it receives an outgoing mail it then sends it to another smarthost, thus I am hoping that that smarthost will be checked only for spamlists. Can this be easily achieved?

Thank you,
Daniel

The variable, $multi_ip must also be set to "yes" in the web interface's config file: home/exim4u/public_html/exim4u/config/variables.php.  Please read the documentation at the bottom of the current etc/exim/exim4u_local.conf.inc file:

https://github.com/Exim4U/src/blob/master/etc/exim/exim4u_local.conf.inc

Use Exim4U for receiving and temporarily set a smarthost for it, so that when it receives an outgoing mail it then sends it to another smarthost, thus I am hoping that that smarthost will be checked only for spamlists. Can this be easily achieved?

I have not done this but it should be fairly straight forward.  You will probably need to write a custom router and/or transport.

FYI,

Gordon
