    In Exim, it's possible specify a particular IP address for SMTP delivery. This sits under here:

    Code:
    remote_smtp:
      driver = smtp
            interface = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    
    Short of making the exim.conf file immutable to change from the cPanel update scripts, can the interface spec be set permanently somewhere within the Exim raw config editor? I tried adding it to the top box but the configuration tester doesn't like it (for obvious reasons).

    I also think it would be quite nice if we had the option of specifying this within the Tweak Settings portion of WHM. I've submitted an enhacement request for it:

    Go on, have a guess
    AFAIK, it's not possible with the WHM Exim Advanced Editor, though it would be nice to be able to. I've voted for the enhancement though ;)
