in your exim configuration, set the smtp
use one of the server
SMTP service address (China East 1): smtpdm.aliyun.com
SMTP service address (Singapore): smtpdm-ap-southeast-1.aliyun.com
SMTP service address (Sydney): smtpdm-ap-southeast-2.aliyun.com
SMTP port: 25, 80, 465 (SSL encrypted).

Still no luck , right now my exim4 is not working , it can not start even i tried to install it in the new ECS.
by the way, i've manage to configure my direct mail , until i post my Email template to be reviewed, after teh reviewed pass, i tried to create recipient lists, and sent my Email template to my recipient lists,
Email sent successfully, but it goes to spam folder on recipients side, do you have any advise on this issue

In regards to your question on emails going to the SPAM folder:
Does your email look like a SPAM type email?
Where did you get the mailing list? Did you collect the email addresses from your own website thru a subscribe form or by purchasing a mailing list? If the latter then your emails are SPAM.
There are a number of resources on the Internet to help you create emails that will have a higher chance of not being considered SPAM:
In the old days it was easier to keep track of spammers by their IP addresses. Today, because of the high reuse of IP addresses, you might be considered a spammer because the previous person who was a spammer had the same IP address. There is nothing that you can do for this case.
If only one vendor (such as Norton) marks your email as spam, go to their support forums, review their documents and then ask for help. If everyone marks your email as spam then you either need to redesign your emails, use appropriate mailing lists or check to see if the IP address or domain has been blacklisted.
Lately, even Microsoft's spam filters mark Microsoft emails as spam. I find that very ironic.
If you have rented or purchased a mailing list and emailed to that list, you are now considered a spammer. Vendors put honey-pot email addresses out in the wild. Send an email to one of those email addresses and you are now marked.
Recommendation, don't do your own mailing list sending. Use a commercial service. For small email volumes, the price is usually nothing or very little.

Ok , let me tell you the story,
I was planing to use Direct mail as an email blaster by my customer request, so i tried to configured it and tested it using my own company email only, and still , it goes to my spam folder, i'm so sorry cause i'm really new in mail server

i have stuck for this situation too
i think this problem with authentication required that not responce to your server ( mail server) if you use port 80 starttls
Direct Mail not response as good as what i know
they block port 25 , and use 467 port .. .but server block incoming connection ip , in direct mail dashboard did not have step for handle this.
until now i have stuck with mail server and direct mail for relay smtp.
