I have an issue: I'm migrating a number of email services, and would like to do as follows:

1 - I create the email service for anydomain.com on cpanel (in the meanwhile, email service for anydomain.com is running elsewhere, and anydomain.com is using external DNS servers, independent from my cpanel machine)

2 - in cPanel I create every email address needed, and send a notification email to each one (with the new password) using cpanel

3 - so the user receives in his email the message with the new password...

4 ... and few days later I can switch DNS, my cpanel server begin to work for anydomain.com, and every user has yet new password

My issue: in step 2, my server send this message in local delivery, so the user doesn't get it... :-(

The question is: how can I configure cpanel in order to use the MX specified in the external, authoritative DNS, even if cpanel consider it a local domain?!?!
