Apparently I was doing it backwards, and if you have a dedicated IP for each domain then you can enable "Send mail from account’s dedicated IP" in Main >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Editor >> Domains and IPs and leave those 2 files mentioned in the URL alone, then it will ALMOST work.
