    File dated December 15, 2010:
    The smarthost router code located under EDIT#48 is enhanced to match the conditions and settings of the lookuphost router. If the smarthost router is important to you, then test the new smarthost router code to make sure it works for you.

    Old Code:
    Code:
    # smarthost:
      # driver = manualroute
      # route_list = !+local_domains HOSTNAME-or-IP#
      # transport = remote_smtp
    New Code:
    Code:
    # smarthost:
    #   driver = manualroute
    #   domains = ! +local_domains
    #   ignore_target_hosts = 127.0.0.0/8
    #   condition = "${perl{check_limits}}"
    #   route_list = !+local_domains HOSTNAME-or-IP#
    #   transport = remote_smtp

    Version 4.1 file dated 19-April-2011:

    1. 4.0 requires exim.pl dated 09-Aug-2010 or later, while 4.1 requires exim.pl dated 20-mar-2008 or later (but this may be an error in documentation; you should always the latest version of exim.pl available from the DirectAdmin website, here. As this is written, it's dated 17-March-2011.

    2. At Edit#27, 4.0 includes R2 check by default when checking for valid hostnames; this was causing problems for some admins so has been commented out by default in version 4.1.

    3. Also at Edit#27, 4.1 adds R4 check, commented out by default, when checking for valid hostnames; not allowing domains ending in .home eliminates a major source of spam for us but has been commented out by default in version 4.1 because it hasn't been tested long enough. It will most likely be left uncommented in the next version as it has not yet caused any problems for us since implemented.
