    What is happening is that a customer of mine installed his own email server, however his ISP sucks so much that every fixed IP they give him is listed in RBLs, so I was wondering if I can help him sending his emails thru my CPanel
    server.

    In summary the solution would look like this

    Hi,

    I suggested you to ask your client to use WebMail Program (Squirrel mail, Roundcube and Horde)to send emails.

    Why don't your costumer use your server to send mails via SMTP?

    You can set exim to run on port 26 to avoid problems with blocked smtp port. WHM -> Service Manager

    The only suggestion that will work is using webmail, because if there is deep scanning happening where it checks every IP in the header for the receiving email server (something that can be turned on for Barracuda, for example), then the user's IP from the ISP will appear in that header.

    This means that if you use SMTP from a local email client, your ISP's IP will be in that header. If you use webmail, however, it will only show the server's IP. As such, have the user log into webmail to send emails to avoid the issue if their ISP cannot provide non blacklisted IPs.
