Anyone knows a GNU smtp server (light & simple) that can be configured on a dedicated IP.

I want for example a smtp server on xx.xx.xx.1, and other copy of it in xx.xx.xx.2

In the other side all mails that goes out from my server are sent by the main shared IP address and hostname. (ex. server1.yourdomain.com)
Is there anyway or tip to setup a virtual hostname server for an dedicated IP?

The reason for doing this is that some users use mailing list so I want them to send their mails through the dedicated IP I assigned to them in WHM and not through the main shared IP.

THANKS :)

Go on, have a guess
AFAIK, you cannot do that on a cPanel server.

No.

What you currently see happening on your server is what happens with virtual hosting. If you want to do what you suggest, then you need to look into a VPS solution for customers. An example would be the Virtuozzo VPS enabled servers SM/TP offer:
