Need to migrate from Sendmail to Exim

Hi Guys

We need to shift users(relay users) from sendmail to exim,problem is we have mailertable in sendmail for smart route and in exim we have in exim.conf

driver = manualroute
domains =
transport = remote_smtp
route_data = ""

we have another way found(but not confirmed) which is smarthost define in exim.conf and make a different file for domians,given is smarthost format and file format(mailertable in exim)

'exim.conf' entry
driver = manualroute
transport = remote_smtp
route_data = ${lookup{$domain}lsearch{/etc/exim/mailertable}

'mailertable' file:

And found following error:

2008-08-08 14:28:24 [] sender verif y defer for <>: failed to expand "${lookup{$domain}lsearch{ /etc/exim/mailertable}": missing or misplaced { or }
2008-08-08 14:28:24 [] F=<mfrafique> temporarily rejected RCPT <>: Could not complete fy defer for <>: failed to expand "${lookup{$domain}lsearch

Could anyone guide me in this regard how we can define multiple domians for relay in exim.

looks like a typo

Your line

route_data = ${lookup{$domain}lsearch{/etc/exim/mailertable}

is missing a '}'

I think it should be

route_data = ${lookup{$domain}lsearch{/etc/exim/mailertable}}
