    Hello, I have a customer on a non-cPanel server. We have developed a cgi mailing program that will email to his customers (about 1000 customers). The current host will not allow us to do this (against policy). How can I allow that server to relay through my cPanel server? I can tell the cgi script what mail server to use, but currently the cPanel will refuse to relay it (at rightly so in all other cases).

    Thanks.

    You need your script to do smtp auth or you need to add the ip of the ouside server to /etc/relayhosts. Problem with that is that antirelayd will clear it out after a bit.

    your best bet is to do smtp auth.
