What is Exim?
Exim is an MTA, also known as a message transfer agent. It is free software, developed to be used on Unix-like operating systems. Furthermore, it is distributed under GNU license and offers flexibility in mail routing, checking incoming email, and so on.
What port does Exim run on?
Exim runs on port 25 by default. However, since many internet service providers tend to block port 25, this can lead to issues.
This is why our Support Engineers recommend setting up Exim to run on an additional port. You can set up an extra port if you have dedicated hosting or run a VPS server.
