    Default Installing Sendmail on alternate port?

    Does anyone have any guides or tutorials on installing sendmail on a port other than 25?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can enable a second copy of exim on an alternate port in WHM, under Service Manager.

    One confirmed bug: Restarting exim from WHM will only restart the port 25 copy. To restart the second copy, you can go to Service Manager and click Save. You'll also notice this problem whenever exim is updated. Only one copy will start after the update.

    Other than that, works great!

    Thanks for the info, but it needs to be something other than exim that runs on the alternate port. One our clients needs to run something other than exim for SMTP - they have trouble with exim in their application. Sendmail or qmail are both fine.

    Thanks - Brian
