    Hi guys.

    I need to know if it's possible to have more than one Smarthost in EXIM CONFIGURATION MANAGER / SMARHOST SUPPORT ?

    I've tried (I've replaced the XX with my actual IP of course) :
    * 192.99.xxx.xxx:184.107.xxx.xxx

    But Exim always deliver to the 192.99.xxx.xxx. If possible, I would like round robin or random. Worst case scenario would be fail over.

    Is this possible to control this in the GUI ?
    If not, and if I add "hosts_randomize = true" in /etc/exim.conf, will it survive an update of exim or whm ?

    Thanks.

    I am using

    * IP1:IP2 byname

    You may try this

    * IP1:IP2 randomize
