    We currently have a Barracuda Spam Firewall, we have it currently set to check all mail and then forward it to the local cPanel server. This works great..

    Is it possible to setup a SMTP relay to send ALL mail from cpanel/exim to our Barracuda? I wasn't able to find anything solid on the forums/google.

    Thanks in advance.

    We make the following changes for outbound scanning.

    Edit /etc/exim.conf

    Look for two instances of:

    driver = dnslookup

    under dk_lookuphost: and lookuphost:

    Comment both instances and add two instances of

    driver = manualroute
    route_list = * barracuda.outgoing.hostname

    so it'll look something like this:

    dk_lookuphost:
    #driver = dnslookup
    driver = manualroute
    route_list = * barracuda.outgoing.hostname

    lookuphost:
    #driver = dnslookup
    driver = manualroute
    route_list = * barracuda.outgoing.hostname

    then go to Barracuda management panel and go to Basic -> Authorized Senders and enter main ip address of that cpanel server

    and restart cpanel exim and check the exim_mainlog

    Code:
    grep barracuda.outgoing.hostname /var/log/exim_mainlog

    Does these barracuda devices actually work better than software spam solutions like ASSP / Spam Assasin / etc?
