    I have a client who needs the web hosting but would like to host there own email on their end. They provided me with an IP address to point the MX Entry.

    My question is:
    Is it as easy as going to their cPanel account, going to "Modify MX Entry" and selecting "Change an MX Entry" then changing the drop down to their domain and inserting the IP address into the "to" field?

    Also you will need to remove them from localdomains and add them to remotedomains or when you fix mail perms it will change them back to the standard

    if you have shell access you go to /etc/localdomains and locate the domain name entry delete it and then go to /etc/remotedomains and add the entry there

    this is for redhat but most systems should be similar localdomains may be in a different directory depending upon config and OS
