Log into WHM, and select the Exim Configuration Editor, then click on Advanced Editor. Any changes you make in there will persist.

I cannot do that since the line has to be beneath those two and they are not editable in the config editor.

if you have root access, you may edit the /etc/exim.conf file and chattr +i of the file to prevent Cpanel from overwriting it.

question is whether the cpanel upgrade will fail if we do the chattr +i on exim.conf ?
Jim

ps
chattr -i will remove the lock on it

Yes I have read that thread and done that and no it does not work, the server will send the e-mails from the main IP.

Thanks anyway
