    Section: AUTH
    smtp2go_login:
    driver = plaintext
    public_name = LOGIN
    client_send = : **** : ****

    Section: ROUTERSTART
    send_via_smtp2go:
    driver = manualroute
    domains = !+local_domains
    #ignore_target_hosts = !*.outlook.com
    #domains = *.outlook.com : *.outlook.co.uk
    transport = smtp2go_smtp
    route_list = * mail.smtp2go.com

    Section: TRANSPORTSTART

    smtp2go_smtp:

    Yes, what do you need ? what is your setup, and which service are you sending mail through, and which addresses are you having issues sending too?

    in your any reason for using port 225 ?

    if you have WHM - goto exim config manager.
    Click Advanced Editor

    Search for "Section :AUTH" and below type in this

    smtp2go_login:
    driver = plaintext
    public_name = LOGIN
    client_send = : username : password

    Then Search for "Section: ROUTERSTART" and below type

    Section: ROUTERSTART
    send_via_smtp2go:
    driver = manualroute
    domains = !+local_domains
    transport = smtp2go_smtp
    route_list = * mail.externalmailserver.com

    DONT PASTE THIS // route_list = * sends all emails via above address
    DONT PASTE THIS // domain only sends to external people, so it still delivers locally if needed.


    Then Search for "Section: TRANSPORTSTART" and below type

    smtp2go_smtp
    driver = smtp
    port = 225
    hosts = mail.externalmailserver.com
    hosts_require_auth = mail.externalmailserver.com


    Any link to smtp2go is just a label! it doesnt matter as long as you put your external mail settings it, that setup should send all mail.

    Worked like a charm ... I just use IP auth, so I didn't use your suggested auth settings .... thanks mate.

    I really like more Postfix ... in one single line like this you have t all done:

    relayhost = [gw.emailer.com]:225

    I do use port 225 due to internal auth system, not important the reason :)

    Thanks !
