    If you only have 1 MX record for these domain names, it doesn't matter if MX is set at 0 or 10. It could be set at 5, 15, 25 for all intents & purposes.

    mail.

    Using Plesk on another server the settings are as follows

    domain.com MX 10 mail.domain.com

    And when my clients set up there email accounts, they set

    incoming mail: mail.domain.com

    Outgoing/smtp mail: mail.domain.com


    Now in cPanel it looks like this

    domain.com MX 0 domain.com

    What will the clients use for incoming/outgoing mail

    incoming mail: domain.com

    Outgoing/smtp mail: domain.com

    If the previous is correct then is there a way to set up whm to automatically change it from just the: domain.com to mail.domain.com for new accounts?

    cpanel automatically creates CNAME entries for mail, ftp, www to your domain.com so that it is same if you use

    domain.com
    mail.domain.com
    www.domain.com or
    ftp.domain.com as mail servers.

    This works well if you haven't changed anything in the dns records manually.

    Clients will not have to change settings.

    Great thanks... I am very green and trying to cut down as many issues as possible before I switch clients over and go live with the server.. Thank you for your time.

    Will they have to change their username/login from:

    account to account+domain.com

    Re: what about email login?

    that is already there. This doesnt depend on how you setup your mail servers.

    Re: Re: what about email login?

    So there is not a way to setup the server so they only have to use just their account name with nothing after it?

    this should be fine for default username.
