    H ithere,

    I dont know if this is in the right place so please dont flame me if I am wrong.

    My question is this... I have 2 servers, 1 that has cPanel/WHM installed and a second server which has Centos5 and Postfix/MailScanner/Mailwatch (Basically antispam server) I would like to be able to forward all email for my clients over to the second server. I know that I can update the MX records to forward them to the second server.

    The second server allows me to point the email to anywhere via dns or IP. So I could put the email back to the cpanel server for customers to collect their clean email.

    Would this cause a loop in email as mail would to do the following

    cPanel > MX > DESTINATION > CLEANED > Original cPanel

    Would this work ?

    nice to see the words "open forum" when on-one can help :mad: lol

    Anyways... All you have to to do is forward your MX records to your second domain / hostname of server you want to clean your email then use the second server to route email to your cpanel server via IP connections.

    Depends on what antispam solution you go with
