Hello all,

My customer has a domain name for which he wants to have the mail handled on his cpanel account.

which settings should I make on the source domain and which on the target account (the cpanel server)?

Hey there! On the source domain, you'll want to make sure the MX record points to the cPanel server. Usually this is done by changing the MX record to mail.domain.com, and then adding an A record for that mail subdomain that points to the cPanel machine.

That's really all that is necessary to get that working, as mail is configured by default on cPanel servers, so you won't need to do anything on the cPanel side of things.
