    Is there a way to make email forwarders mail from an IP other than the server's primary one? It appears that using the /etc/mailips & /etc/mailhelo files to change the domain's mailing IP does not affect forwarders and they still send from the primary IP.

    Using CentOS 5.6 and WHM 11.28.64.

    Hello,

    This thread is several years old. What version of cPanel is installed on your system? EX:

    Code:
    cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
    Thank you.

    This thread is indeed old, but unfortunately the issue remains unsolved.

    Email forwarders still do not observe /etc/mailips and /etc/mailhelo at this time.

    [~]# cat /usr/local/cpanel/version

    11.48.4.4

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.

    To clarify, email forwarders currently only observe the "*" entry in /etc/mailips and /etc/mailhelo.

    They do not observe any of the other entries before the "*", i.e. the various domain names.

    This assumes, of course, that the following options are already enabled in the Exim Configuration Manager in WHM:

    Reference /etc/mailhelo for outgoing SMTP HELO: ON
    Reference /etc/mailips for outgoing SMTP connections: ON

    For example, if /etc/mailips were to contain:

    domain1.com: 6.6.6.6
    domain2.com: 7.7.7.7
    *: 8.8.8.8

    And a message were to go through an email forwarder hello@domain1.com, the expected result is that it should be sent via 6.6.6.6.

    But instead, it is sent via 8.8.8.8. :(

    As requested, we have posted a ticket: 6661507

    Please note that this reproducible issue has been submitted as a bug report, rather than a support request, so server access is unnecessary in this case. Many thanks!

    Hello,

    Our analysts were unable to reproduce this issue on a test server, and there were no additional responses on the support ticket. Are you still experiencing this issue, or is now resolved?

    Thank you.
