Source IP for Reporting and Alerts in ESA


We have a vESA with 2 listerners in the same subnet, so there is only a default ip route. All the alerts and Schedule reports are being sending using IP A (first listener), but the customer wants those e-mails to be sent using IP B (second listener). I have tried with content filters and altsrchost but it seems, this alerts are not treated as nomal e-mail. Is it posible to manipulate the IP address to sent the reports and alerts?


Thank you
