Hi,

when I assign a public IP to a reseller. Wil it's accounts also use that IP for outbound SMTP connections? I have a number of resellers, and I want to avoid that if 1 user sends spam, all resellers are affected in case of a RBL.

Thanks

Hi,

so every time a reseller adds a domain, I have to manually add it to the list there? That's quite cumbersome…

No, if you assign an IP address to a reseller, all of their accounts will be based on that IP address as a shared IP address - you don't need to set this up for each of them.
This is true for the account being assigned this IP but if you've not set up exim to reference /etc/mailips for outbound mail it will use the main shared IP for the server.

Hi,

If I enable this option:
WHM: Main >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Editor >> Standard Options >> Domains and IPs
* Automatically send outgoing mail from the account's IP address instead of the main IP address.

Will then all accounts use their configured (shared or dedicated) IP?
