    Is it possible to configure my smtp server to work on a port as well as 25. I know you can enable 26 but this is also blocked for my friends ISP so I need to use a port higher up.

    Is there any configuration file I can edit to achieve this?

    Thanks

    You can run it on pretty much any port you want:

    In WHM-Service Configuration-Service Manager

    Scroll to the bottom... you'll see 'run exim on another port'

    I'm currently running on 2084 since I'm not using any chat services.

    Should have really replied to this thread earlier. I thought that feature was just locked to port 27. Sorted now anyway and the client can once again send mail.
