    I am looking for a solution. The problem is that I have a number of accounts that need to send email from their own account IP addresses. However the PTR for the IP addresses is the server host name not the account domain name.

    We are adding, changing , removing accounts often, as such I would like to configure this in such a way as it does not require frequent manual editing.

    Hello :)

    The following document explains the options available to you:

    How to Configure Exim's Outgoing IP Address - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Note that an incorrect RDNS configuration may cause mail servers to reject your server's mail. It's fine to use the hostname, but keep in mind a remote mail server may not accept the email because of this. One solution is to come up with a method of quickly updating the RDNS records on-demand with your data center.

    Thank you.
