ip rotation
« on: June 27, 2023, 03:10:08 AM »
Hello guys

Ive been using CWP as an smtp server only. I had someone set up last year and all seems fine. I only run business emails and small cold email campaigns using mailwizz on the same server.

The guy that set up my server said that CWP will rotate the ips every send of an email, so I added 5 extra IPs to the server. But when I check the email headers, they all come from the shared server IP, and not the additional IPs, so not rotating.

My first question is can ip rotation be done for email? or is this guy chatting bs. Ive had a play and can only see a way to manually assign these ips to the accounts. Nothing about rotation.

Any help would be appreciated before I go back to this guy to fix.

I have never done this, because I have never had more than 3 IPs assigned to a server and in that case I assign one to the host and 1 to each VM. The only rotation I have done is swapping the VMs around on the static IPs to help with mail delivery after one client shot themselves in the foot with an account compromise and harmed the reputation of the server.

Find out what IPs are assigned to your server:
Code: [Select]
ip a
ifconfig -a
I would suspect you only have one IP assigned and active on your server.
