    Hi All,

    I want to change our cPanel servers to do the following:

    - If account has a dedicated IP, send all mail out via that IP (scripts/smtp auth etc)
    - If on a shared IP and sent via PHP / Website / script / cron / etc send via SMART host (would like the ability to list 2 smart hosts)
    - If sent via SMTP auth from the server send via account IP

    What's the best way to achieve this?

    Our goal is to limit disruption to clients when the server IP gets blocked due to a exploited Wordpress site etc.

    We're keen on SMART hosts because we can got an overall view of all the scripted / non-SMTP mail leaving out shared servers.
    On the SMART host if needed we could route / via a different IP etc if required but I think if we're sending good mail then we won't get blacklisted as often.

    Any suggestions?
