Exim Route / Relay Emails Specific for a Domain

Hello all!

Here is the scenario: The IP of one of shared server I am managing is blacklisted in hotmail (only hotmail and nowhere else - all blacklisting dbs, gmail, yahoo are fine). And believe me I am not spamming.

I have contacted them many times and have followed their instructions signed up for their junk mail reporting system etc. Setup the spf records. However still my IP is blacklisted.

So I would like to know if we can relay / route emails sent to hotmail ids through one of my other servers using exim, until the issue is resolved?

Yes, you can do this with the smart host option via WHM > Exim Configuration Manager > search for "smart". If you are not the owner or abuse contact on the blacklisted IP you may need to have your service provider contact Hotmail for removal.
