    Is it possible to have a custom Exim config. for individual cPanel account overriding the main Exim config. We have a client with a reseller account with no root access who want to be able to specify a custom Exim config. for one particular account much like you can with php.ini using .htaccess.

    Is this possible?

    I don't think that's possible. What sort of custom config is he interested in having? The answer to that might be helpful in suggesting something else.

    They're wanting to run emails generated by PHP through an external SMTP service (Mandrill in this case but could easily be Amazon SES or Sendgrid say) without editing the underlying website code.

    On a dedicated server the Exim config. could be edited. If the coded could be edited it could be done that way. If the SMTP server didn't have authentication then .htaccess could be used. However, for various reasons these aren't options.

    The MX records are set to use remote mail server (in this case Google Apps). However as things stand any emails generated by the website are sent by the local mail server and delivered to whoever it needs.

    What options does the current website code give you with regards SMTP auth for the outgoing messages? (I'm guessing from what you've said, none) Are you using either CSF's smtp_block or tweak settings "Restrict outgoing SMTP to root, exim, and mailman"?
