    I have a couple of customers that require that ALL emails sent to and from a domain be copied to an archive email service called Smarsh. I have written the directive to the cpanel_exim_system_filter file, but Cpanel constantly updates that file, removing my custom filter.

    I just did a chattr +i on the file, but now I'm concerned that updates won't occur correctly. In exim.conf, the call for the system filter is system_filter=/etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter. How can I correctly modify this line to add a NEW filter file while retaining the original filter file? As I'd bet that cpanel will also update exim.conf, I can't just change it there.

    Any ideas?

    If possible, use the advanced Exim configuration editor in WHM. That will preserve your changes.

    Updating Exim Filter

    David,

    Should I put the directive in the exim config, or should I call another filter file to run? If the latter, what is the correct syntax?

    system_filter=/etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter, /etc/my_custom_filter ?
