    Hello, I'm trying to configure Exim to send email from multiple IP addresses.

    This page - Changing the Sending IP for Outbound Email in Exim - details how to complete that process, but I'm having difficulty following the guide.

    It's divided into 2 major steps:
    1- Configuring Exim from WHM
    2- Creating and Editing the Appropriate Files

    I got past step 1 very easily, but now I'm stuck on step 2. I've spent a pretty long time trying to figure this out.

    I have no idea where to find the /etc/mailhelo or /etc/mailips files. I don't know if those options are in WHM, or if I have to go to the regular cPanel. And I don't know how to create the files themselves.

    It talks about using the command line and text editors, but I don't know how they fit into all of it.

    Can somebody please help me? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello captainEO,

    You will have to login to your server via SSH and create those two files.

    * Login to your server as root using any SSH client such as Putty
    * Create the file /etc/mailips using the command ( vi /etc/mailips )
    * The newly created file will open up and you can enter the specified contents there. ( Press 'i' to insert text when you get the file opened )
    * Save and close the file by pressing Esc followed by ":wq" and press enter.
    * Same can be done for /etc/mailhelo
