Sendmail and Exim
 
I am trying to setup a sendmail server on my dedicated server. It was pre-configured to use exim from cpanel.

Is it possible to use exim for all emails from a a certain domain i setup on the server and sendmail for others?

ex.
domain1.com -> exim
domain2.com -> sendmail

If it is possible can someone let me know how i would go about doing this? If it is not how would i disable exim and use sendmail for all mail?

Any hints would be good as a am a newbie system administrator.

Thanks!

AFAIR when you have Exim installed, the path to Sendmail becomes a symlink to Exim anyway. It may be possible to set them up to listen on different ports, but how you would seperate that on a per domain basis would be interesting.

Is there a reason you would choose to use Sendmail over Exim?

i will be doing some email marketing and need to install dkim, domain keys, sender id and spf.

How to i remove exim and use sendmail for everything? How would i make /usr/sbin/sendmail point to the sendmail binary instead of exim?

Asking that is a little like asking a carpenter to build his own gallows; so long as our email addresses stay off your marketing lists... ;)

To remove Exim use the distributions package/software manager. You've not mentioned the distribution of Linux on your server, so there is very little help anyone can give.

Exim is able to deal with DKIM and SPF. What IP or IP's will you be using for your marketing? I'd find it helpful to know :-) LOL.
