    Hi,

    I am looking to have multiple exim running on different ips on a single server. I tried to make copies of the exim config file, restrict them to specific interfaces, make chkconfig entries, however when i try to start the service, it gives me an error.

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/exim-xxx start
    Starting clamd: 
    Starting exim:                                             [  OK  ]
    0 processes (antirelayd) sent signal 9
    
    I have disabled starting of clam, antirelayd, spamd on this additional exim as it should be able to connect to existing running daemons.

    The reason why i need multiple exim running is for multiple ssl certs. This is a dedicated client server, which has 3-4 domains, all on different dedicated ip, and we need to have different ssl running on them.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Even if you configure multiple instances of exim on server emails will be routed to shared IP of the server. In that case I don't think you will see any benefit to configure ssl for each IP for emails.

    We can use the dedicated IP for outgoing mails as per I last remember from WHM.

    Got it resolved. Somehow antirelayd got enabled, once disabled from service manager, it started to work. Now to test :)

    I am happy to see you were able to resolve the issue. Please note this is not natively supported, so it falls outside our scope of support.

    Thank you.

    Yes I know :) Keeping fingers crossed that sometime in future cpanel will support this feature.

    I too happy to hear that you were able to run multiple instances of exim. If cPanel can support this feature and provide tool to run multiple instances and run multiple ssl I think it would be great.
