    I just got a server and WHM, However my server providers network does not allow port 25.
    I'm trying to get WebMail to work (cPanel's) It will receive E-Mails, Just won't send, I would like to know if it's possible to run it on a different port and let it work with Squirel Mail and Horde, Is it possible?

    Like using Exim On Another Port.

    log into your WHM, then go to the Service Configuration >> Service Manager
    then toward the bottom of the page you'll see two check boxes for "exim on another port", enter the port(default 26), check the 2 boxes and "save", then will allow Exim to run on the additional port.

    Yes, But Webmail does not know about the new Exim port, How am I to get it to send E-Mails on the NEW Exim port? or get it to use IMAP or something.

    Exim on another port is to allow external mail clients to send email through your server and has no effect on mail that is internal, such as webmail.

    If you're running your server on a link that does have this blocking, such as a home static IP for instance, this WILL still cause issues, because by default your server is going to try to connect to other servers on port 25. In this instance... I think you're hosed. Email needing to leave your server will have to be routed through your ISP mail servers, with them acting as relays.

    Relayer?

    Is it possible to configure Exim to use a different SMTP server to send mail (Such as smtp.ntouch.ca) with a username and password and use that SMTP to deliver mail?

    Let me know.
