comment Conditional https redirect to http depending on URL? (Apache)
Well, I tried different syntax that seemed to work --- RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^.*(abc).*$ [NC] --- Thanks for your help and trying to point me in the right direction.

comment Conditional https redirect to http depending on URL? (Apache)
Thus, what you offered seems to make sense on the surface, but I get this when reloading Apache RewriteCond: bad argument line '!^%{HTTP_HOST}/abc'. I am trying to read the links you sent me to see if there is any more hints.

comment I think installing PostFix solved my issues, but it seemed *too* easy
Also, I have to adjust my thinking to this new way of handling email. When I was using exim4, I was quite certain I was relaying through Gmail/Google Apps because I had settings in a passwd.client file and all the email looked like it was coming from that account. For example, when I went through the Postfix setup "wizard" it asked me for my System Mail Name, and I basically just put what I named my VPS as that name, not some . delimited FQDN or anything. That seemed to work, but I am not sure if I am missing something. I also want to make sure that I can't receive email in Postfix either.

Thank you! Well, I am finding through other posts I have made with this question that, unbeknownst to me, my mail is no longer being relayed through Google Apps at all. Postfix is the default sender now. It just looks like when I test that the email was sent from Google Apps because the From: address is an address that I have set up in Google Apps.

comment How do I target a different mail server depending on domain with exim?
I strictly want my linux server to send email only.

comment How do I target a different mail server depending on domain with exim?
Thanks for the insight Steven. I am coming around now. So basically, while the username I give in passwd.client (which for gmail is an email address), the FROM address being the same is just coincidence and I could change that within the Gmail settings for that account if I want to. I need to think about this some more regarding the best way to accomplish what I want to do. Maybe I move away from Exim. One thing I do know is that I don't want my server to be an email server. I use Gmail / Google Apps for that very reason....I want to offload email handling to them.....

Of course I could be misunderstanding the way exim works, but from what I have found the passwd.client file does have an affect on the FROM address depending on the credentials you give it.

comment How do I target a different mail server depending on domain with exim?
Damn. I misstated in my comments above. I want to send the email through a different Gmail account, which, of course, would imply a different FROM address. I did some testing -- in the passwd.client file, I put in one set of credentials for blogemail@gmail.com and the FROM address was, of course, blogemail@gmail.com. Then I commented that out and put in another set of credentials for mycompany@gmail.com, and the FROM address was mycompany@gmail.com, as expected. What I want is to be able to have both as an option.

comment How do I target a different mail server depending on domain with exim?
That's correct. I want a different FROM address. So for my blog, I want it to come from blogemail@gmail.com, but for orders (and I just use this as an example since i have no orders yet :-) ), I want mycompany@gmail.com. I am sorry for the lack of clarity.

comment How do I target a different mail server depending on domain with exim?
David, I am by no means a mail expert. Basically I used the following as a guide to my setup: wiki.debian.org/GmailAndExim4. So there is a .conf that lists the initial setup parameters, but what email address mail is sent from is configured, as far as I understand it, from the passwd.client file. I am looking to see if there is a sort of "if/then" capability to direct what email address is used to send email.
