Exim: change the outgoing mail server IP address.

By default Exim will be using the main server IP to send mails. If the main server IP is listed in any spam database, then we will not be able to send mails. In order to fix this, we can change the Exim mail server IP to any other IP (which is not blacklisted) on the server. To do this follow the steps given below.

1. Open the Exim configuration file

  vi /etc/exim.conf

2. Locate the section of the file that contains the following:

driver = smtp

3. Replace this section with the following modified version :

driver = smtp
interface = <IP>

You need to substitute the right IP address here.

4. Restart Exim using the following commands

service exim restart
/etc/init.d/exim restart

This will change the outgoing mail server IP of the exim mail server.
