    Hello,

    The "Smarthost support" option under the "Mail" tab in "WHM Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager >> Basic Editor" allows you to use a smart host for outgoing messages. The option is documented at:

    Exim Configuration Manager - Basic Editor - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Google also offers some information on using their email service for SMTP relay purposes:

    SMTP relay: Route outgoing non-Gmail messages through Google - G Suite Administrator Help

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    You can configure which email address notifications are forwarded to via:

    "WHM Home » Server Contacts » Edit System Mail Preferences"

    However, the forwarder action itself will go through the local cPanel server unless you choose another method such as SMS or PushBullet via:

    "WHM Home » Server Contacts » Contact Manager"

    Thank you.
