    Hello,

    I want to add new additional dedicated IP for one website. this website already running on shared server IP and i want to only assign new IP to this website mx records only so only this website mailing will use this IP not website itself.

    like:

    shared IP: 11.11.11.11 assign to "test.com"
    Dedicated IP: 22.22.22.22 assign to "mail.test.com".

    could it possible if yes then How ? because cpanel use CNAME for mail.test.com and i m asking to change it to A for assigning the IP to its mailing.

    Thanks advanced

    Hi,

    First of all enable "Reference /etc/mailips for outgoing SMTP connections" in WHM >> Exim Configuration Manager

    Then edit /etc/mailips and add below line and restart exim.

    Then all emails from domain.com will be sent via. IP XX.XX.XX.XX

    This is not a valid way of changing the IP address used by the domain name for sending mail. Please keep that record in place, and instead use the instructions here:

    How to Change the Sending IP for Outbound Email in Exim

    Thank you.
