    Hi,

    I need to add some additional configurations on my exim.conf file. But it will get overwrited after some time automatically. I read in some other forum to add entries via exim configuration editor in cpanel. But, on that editor, i cant add such entries. It only allows to select a field and its value only. How can i add custom entries?

    begin authenticators


    ses_login:
    driver = plaintext
    public_name = LOGIN
    client_send = :
    ===========
    begin routers


    send_via_ses:
    driver = manualroute
    domains = ! +local_domains
    transport = ses_smtp
    route_list = * email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
    ========
    begin transports

    #entry for amazon
    ses_smtp:
    driver = smtp
    port = 25
    hosts_require_auth = $host_address
    hosts_require_tls = $host_address



    Entry is something like the above entry. How can i resolve this?

    Hello :)

    You can also utilize the /etc/exim.conf.local file to ensure changes are preserved through updates. This is the the same file that the Advanced Editor for Exim in WHM uses.

    Thank you.

    Is this still accurate?

    Can this -- bentasker.co.uk/documentation/linux/185-enabling-srs-on-a-cpanel-server -- simply be placed in this alternate file?
