    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.
