    Hello, I want to install cPanel on my main server and have it manage and configure my email dns and apache server that are on 3 seperate servers. Is this possible?

    Yes, you can do it using the cPanel server clustering functionality.

    That is incorrect.

    Remote DNS can be done using DNS clustering, but email and Apache must still reside on the cPanel/WHM server at this time.

    Can you please advise if it's possible now to host emails on a seperate cpanel server under the new version ?

    Both of the previous poster replies are wrong but for different reasons ....

    To answer your question, yes you can indeed do exactly what you are asking and effectively cluster config your email with Cpanel mostly how it is already in the current version but they don't officially support this and you will need to make a couple of small minor modifications to make it all work seamlessly and so the servers know which server has which email.

    As of 11.25 (the latest version as of writing), email management (add/remove/check webmail etc.) functionality natively works only with the local server.
