    Hi!
    it's possibile change SMTP port only for 1 account? Or add another port?
    The service provider of one of my customer want that this port must be 587 instead 25.
    Thanks

    You can add support for an additional port for all accounts by going to WHM -> Service Configuration -> Service Manager and check the checkboxes for "Exim on Another Port" and change the port number to 587.

    This will allow any account on the server to send mail over port 25 or port 587. Disabling port 25 is not advised as that will interfere with mail delivery.

    At this time, there is method via cPanel/WHM for blocking all but 1 account from using this specific port.
