    I need to create new account in WHM with new domain and IP. I create it and it automaticly assigns the next free IP of the VPS to the domain. On that new account I install Interspire. I go to WHM and configure exim to automatically send outgoing mail from the account’s IP address instead of the main IP address. But the email still comes from the main IP when I check the header. A friend of mine has done it exactly this way without editing any config files and it works for him and he is on the same hosting provider as me. Any suggestions?

    How are these emails being sent? If a script, scripts using sendmail will still use the main server IP to send emails as it is bypassing the exim configuration settings.
