    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?

    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.

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