    I've enabled "Verify the existence of email senders" and it has helped stop many spammers.

    Unfortunately, it also stopped several legitimate senders. We have a few servers which forward all "root" emails to a real email address on our cPanel server. Since we enabled the verification of email servers, all those forwarded "root" emails coming from our remote servers are being blocked.

    For example, a cron report is sent to root and forwarded to a real email, which means the email looks like:

    From: root@server
    To: real@email.com
    Subject: cron...

    Our cPanel server will reject the email because exim won't be able to verify the existence of the sender "root@server" since "server" isn't a real domain. The server is actually called "server" because it runs on a local network with an ADSL line with dynamic IP address.

    So, can i whitelist the sender "root@server"?
