    Go on, have a guess
    There isn't one on cPanel as cPanel servers use exim as the MTA. You can configure it further if you want through WHM > Exim Configuration Editor > Advanced mode. You'll probably want to look at http://www.exim.org to help with whatever it is you want.

    I also need to relay all mail through a remote mail server, I was hoping to use the SMART_HOST setting in sendmail to achieve this.

    Does anyone know how to achieve the same result with Exim?

    Solution

    Ok, after some further digging around on this forum and from reading the Exim FAQ I have found an easy solution.

    Apparantly in WHM, sendmail config is little more than a pointer to the Exim MTA which does all the mail routing duties.

    To redirect all non local domains to a smart host:

    1) Login to WHM as root
    2) Under Service Configuration, click: "Exim Configuration Editor"
    3) Scroll to the bottom and click "Advanced Editor" (usual rules of care apply)
    4) Locate the ROUTERS CONFIGURATION section, notice under the router config for democheck: there is an editable box
    paste in the following:

    #This router relays all mail to mail.domain.com for onward routing
    send_to_gateway:
    driver = manualroute
    domains = !+local_domains
    transport = remote_smtp
    route_list = * mail.domain.com

    5) Save the config and off you go.
