    Hi!

    As far as I read, when using rbl smtp port should be set to 587.

    Within WHM -> Main >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager I set "Allow exim to listen on port" enable 587.

    Within WHM firewall configuration there's:
    Code:
    # This is a comma separated list of the ports to block. You should list all
    # ports that exim is configured to listen on
    SMTP_PORTS = 25
    Has 587 to be added there, too?

    Thanks in advance,
    sjac

    That is correct.

    What is incorrect in your post is the term WHM firewall. There is no such product, you're speaking of ConfigServer Firewall which is supported here on these forums:

    HTH!

    I guess 465 should be entered there, too when using SSL mail?

    Correct. CSF should already have most of the important ports listed there. You can add or remove as needed.
