Exim port 587: Setup

by | Oct 26, 2021

Exim port 587 is easy to set up with Bobcares on your side.

Our Support Engineers are here to help you set up Exim on an additional port to ensure none of your mail routing is interrupted.

At Bobcares, we offer solutions for queries, big and small, as a part of our Server Management Service.

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.

How to set up port 587 for Exim?

Our Support Techs are here with an easy way to set up port 587 as an additional port for Exim as seen below:

    1. First, log in to WHM.
    2. Then, select Service Configuration.
    3. Next, select Service Manager.
    4. After that, enable SMTP Server under Exim.
    5. Then, go to Exim on another port and ensure the port is set to 587 or 26. You can also choose an alternate port.
    6. Finally click Save and exit.
