    I am also curious if anyone has found the new method to do this without manually modifying exim.conf's remote_smtp transport (which auto-reverts upon Exim update).

    The previous method of copying the lookup/literal routers, renaming them, setting them to a custom remote_smtp transport and specifying that custom transport seem to no longer work with cPanel 11. Regardless what you do the default lookup/literal routers are used. It's almost as if there's something explicitly being coded to use them. If (simply for testing purposes) you manually comment out the lookup/literal routers in exim.conf and leave in your custom ones all mail fails to send out because it flat out skips to the fail_remote_domains router. It's as if cPanel 11's implementation of Exim flat out refuses to recognize any custom routers.

    Any help?

    Right, but that manual modification of exim.conf is not sanctioned/supported by cPanel itself and thus a /scripts/eximup will revert it out. As Chirpy says in the thread you've linked, it's not supported and not only will cPanel revert the changes but it will strip immutable flags you may have set to try and prevent the revert and then revert the changes still.

    The "sanctioned" method that worked for cPanel 10 (copying the routers/transports and renaming them and then using those 'custom' transports) seems to be flat out ignored in cPanel 11.

    I'm looking for any insight on how to get that behavior functional with cPanel 11 through sanctioned/supported methods which cPanel will not revert out.

    Hi I am having this same problem as well.

    I think there is a way to set permissions to exim.conf to where the
    file is locked and the system will not overwrite it upon update?

    Anyone know how I would go about doing this...

    Are there instructions on doing this (changing the Exim server IP?).

    My VPS gives me two IP addresses, and pretty much everything is running on one right now. It's becoming more apparent that some spammer has been spoofing my server IP, as I am getting an escalating number of RBL warnings and emails from AOL, Yahoo, Comcast, etc.

    I've enabled all the security features that I can find, and have the exim log recording verbose info. The emails that are coming back to me as spam are NOT in the log, so I'm assuming that the IP is spoofed.

    So, I guess the next step is to use my altering IP for exim. I just want to be sure that everything gets set right, RDNS, SPF, DomainKeys, etc.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
