SRS (Sender Rewriting Scheme) logging in WHM 108

Just an FYI, if you are used to seeing SRS information in your /var/log/exim_mainlog and use the default log_selector settings in cPanel, you likely will no longer see SRS information logged in /var/log/exim_mainlog.

You will likely have to add the following option to the log_selector line in the Advanced Configuration Editor: +return_path_on_delivery

I had customizations in my Exim.Conf (an additional router), and when the machine was updated to 108 I got a warning email from the server that all Exim changes couldn't be merged in because I had a custom router. So following cPanel's guidelines I modified my custom router.

Afterward upgrading to 108 I had noticed that the SRS information that I used to see in my exim_mainlog in versions pre-108 was not showing up in WHM 108 exim_mainlog. One could just set log_selector = +all , but that is overkill. All one needs to do to add the SRS information back in is to append +return_path_on_delivery to the log_selector line.

I'm guessing that this is because SRS handling was moved to a different part of the Exim.conf processing, a part where the default logging may not log it.

Just throwing it out there.
