Hi,

Regarding softlayer port 25 block, i want to relay my server in softlayer to my other server outside softlayer..

I found this
Setup Server as a SmartHost

on server 1 (softlayer) :
set Exim Configuration Manager -> Smarthost support -> server 2 ip address..


on server 2 (outside softlayer) :
Set Exim Configuration Manager" -> Trusted SMTP IP addresses & Backup MX hosts with server 1 ip address..

But how to setup port to relay, since port 25 are block ?

Thank you...

Hello :)

You can configure SMTP on an alternate port such as 587 via the "Exim Mail Server (on another port)" service under:

"WHM >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager"

Then, when configuring your smart host, ensure you append the remote IP address with "::587" to ensure that port is utilized. EX:

Code:
* IP::587
Thank you.
