    Our servers were just updated to cPanel 11.25

    We have an external spam filter so our MX records would be set to "spamfilter.domain.com" and then we would check "Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server"

    Now, the option for "Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server" is gone and replaced by options of "local, backup and remote". None of these seems ideal for messages to be sent to the spam filter and then arrive on the server in the appropriate email account.

    Anyone know what the correct setting is that replaces "Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server" ?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    You want "Local Mail Exchanger"

    What Mike (mtindor) has posted above is correct; explicitly setting the Mail Routing Option, Local Mail Exchanger, will have the same effect as the described previous option that was the equivalent in earlier versions.
