    I have someone who wants to use their own dns server and their own mail server. They just want the content on my machine. I was able to do this in Ensim by removing the zone file for the domain, but when I did this in cpanel it did not work. The domain would just show a dns error page when I'd surf to it. He says he did the ezact same routine he had to do with ensim.

    How can we get this to work?

    Thanks

    Whatever DNS server he uses will have to point all the entries for his domain (except MX) to the IP used on your server. You can then leave the DNS record on your machine (pointing to your server, of course) and just point the MX record back to his server (so that if his web site has any scripts that send mail to his domain they will be handed over to his other server for delivery).
