    Hello,
    I would very much like to edit the default cPanel zone file created for new accounts.

    At present, the MX record for new accounts is set to "example.com"
    I would prefer this zone to be created as "mail.example.com"
    I would also prefer the "mail.example.com" to be set as an A record pointing to the IP address of my server.

    The default configuration has caused a number of mail delivery problems, specifically regarding WIX sites or any site hosted on another server.
