    Hi all. I've been using WHM/cPanel for a few years now, but I've never run into this issue before.

    I have a VPS, we'll call domain1. I have several other sites under it, we'll call them domain2, 3, etc.

    The MX records for Domain1, 2, and 3 are pointed to other servers, i.e. not my server. However, if I send an email from Domain1 to Domain2, it goes to the master account mail box on Domain2's account on my server, rather than going to their actual mail server.

    How can I get around this? If I email some of my customers they never receive it because it's hung up on my server. :confused:

    Thanks in advance for any advice or help you can provide.

    --Josh.

    Have you checked/edited your /etc/localdomains and /etc/remotedomains files?

    Nope. What am I looking for in those files? I'm not so good on linux. :(

    I'll take a guess.... I should put the domains in question into remotedomains and take them out of localdomains? Seems like that makes sense, but I'm not sure.
