    My cPanel server does not use DNS, all my clients use their own DNS service (e.g. CloudFlare or their domain name providers).

    A client wants to use autodiscover and autoconfig - what records do they need to use in their DNS?

    Hello,

    I recommend configuring the service based on your preferences after reviewing the documentation at:

    AutoConfig and Autodiscover - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Even though DNS is disabled on the cPanel server, the DNS records are still created within the DNS zone for purposes like this. Once you've enabled AutoConfig/Autodiscover, review the DNS zone to see which entries were added:

    "WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone"

    For example:

    Code:
    autoconfig IN A 1.2.3.4
    autodiscover IN A 1.2.3.4
    _autodiscover._tcp IN SRV 0 0 443 cpanelemaildiscovery.cpanel.net.
    _caldav._tcp IN SRV 0 0 2079 $hostname.
    _caldavs._tcp IN SRV 0 0 2080 $hostname.
    _carddav._tcp IN SRV 0 0 2079 $hostname.
    _carddavs._tcp IN SRV 0 0 2080 $hostname.
    _caldav._tcp IN TXT path=/
    _caldavs._tcp IN TXT path=/
    _carddav._tcp IN TXT path=/
    _carddavs._tcp IN TXT path=/
    Thank you.
