    The server is currently running Exim and I would like to know if it's possible to change the SMTP settings server wide. Meaning let's say you create an email. Account, you@domain. Com.. When you access WebMail and send an email it would send it via the new SMTP settings you've changed the server to.

    I know this request is unusual but I was wondering if it's possible and how do I go about doing it?

    Hello :)

    Which SMTP settings are you attempting to modify?

    Thank you.

    I am trying to change the entire server SMTP settings to go to an external source. I would like mandrillapp.com to handle all outgoing emails and not just on email clients but on the server itself.

    Is this possible?

    The example i used was let's say I go into Webmail, I even want all webmail accounts to use the SMTP server of my choosing.

    You can use the smart host feature:

    Exim - Basic Configuration Editor

    The "Smarthost Support" option under the "Mail" tab allows you to use a smart host for outgoing messages.

    Thank you.

    That was done but it didn't work. In the headers it displayed the server and not the smtp server,
