    Domain's IP [Directadmin]

    Hello friends,

    I am on directadmin from last month & facing a big problem that when any of my user send emails from their domains via php/or any other script. The mail source contains my server's ip address not the domain's ip address.

    Can anybody help me resolve the problem.

    "SSH to the server and edit /etc/exim.conf

    Find default settings in Main Configuration section of your exim.conf near the top:

    smtp_banner = "$ ESMTP Exim $ \
    \#$ $ \n\
    We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, \n\
    and/or bulk e-mail."

    Replace with:

    smtp_active_hostname = ${lookup{$interface_address}lsearch{/etc/ip_hostnames}{$value}{$primary_hostname}}

    smtp_banner = "$ ESMTP Exim $ \
    \#$ $ \n\
    whatever text or message you would like to put in here about UBE or your service\n\"

    next in TRANSPORT CONFIGURATION section near end of exim.conf


    driver = smtp

    Replace or comment out with:

    driver = smtp
    interface = ${lookup{$sender_address_domain}lsearch{/etc/domain_ips}{$value}{$interface_address}}
    helo_data = ${lookup{$interface_address}lsearch{/etc/ip_hostnames}{$value}{$smtp_active_hostname}}"
    I found this for the cpanel, can anybody help me for directadmin.

    yours truly,

    Have you tried adding the smtp_banner section to the top part of the exim.conf? DirectAdmin doesn't have a default one so you should be able to just add it in.

    I'm fairly certain DA isn't intended to support such a feature though; you could have some unexpected results.
