    Hi

    I am sending my emails through several dedicated IPs.

    I had to edit /etc/mailhelo to change helo to be the same as my hostname.

    But

    Everytime the cPanel updates or upgrades this file resets to default.

    Can I prevent changes to mailhelo?

    Are you suggesting me to disable option "Send mail from account's dedicated IP address"?
    If I manually change those files, what happens after the upgrade?
    Reseting to default or files staying intact?

    Yes, per the document in my last response, regarding the "Send mail from account's dedicated IP address" option:

    Thus, disabling this option ensures you can manually alter these files and the changes are not overwritten after enabling:

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


    Thank you.
