    "As I understand it, exceptions are possible, but I don't know under what/which conditions."

    "What" sounds more natural to me, but I'm not sure if it's truly better than "which."

    Re: What/which

    ***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    "What" makes it an open set, while "which" makes it a closed one.

    what conditions: Any condition, no number can be given.
    which conditons: aforementioned conditions, of limited number.
