    Hi there,

    I have a client that will be hosting a website with me, but hosting their email and DNS elsewhere.

    I've got the account set up in WHM and set it to "remote mail exchanger". The local DNS is currently pointing to our own DNS servers - should they point to their actual DNS servers? Is there anything else that I need to do to make this work?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    If your client is not using your DNS server then there is no need to change anything on your server. Just keep enable remote mail exchanger for that account so that you will not get any issues with mail from your server.

    Thanks for your reply! Better to be safe than sorry, so I'm glad I asked.

    Hello :)

    Yes, as mentioned, if the domain name uses remote name servers then you must configure the MX records at that remote DNS server. However, do ensure the domain name is configured with the "Remote Mail Exchanger" setting in it's DNS zone.

    Thank you.
