    we have a few users that use a combination of our services.

    mainly it's a combination of an advanced mailservice, and a cpanel webservice that gives us the problem.

    We need to have cpanel to detect when it's NOT mailserver for a given hosted domain, or even to deselect mailservice for a hosted/addon/parked domain.

    so... the magic could be, if the MX records is set to another server, have an optin option for mailservice for the given domainname.

    right now, we have a problem that mails sent to "other server" is delivered locally, eg IN A <webserverip> IN MX <mailserver>.

    if an email is sent by, eg smtp or php, it's delivered to <webserverip>, and not <mailserver>.. I want the server to respect the mx records, so all userdelivered email/mail from webserver/cpanel interface will be delivered useing MX records..

    is this understandable/possible... ? :)

    I used to fix this on my older plesk system by setting up an postfix to handle email sent from webserver.. Is there a better solution. eg an "main outgoing mailserver" setup sort of solution..

    I think you need to do it manually as follows.

    Remove domain name from /etc/localdomains and add it in /etc/remotedomains

    create the /etc/remotedomains if it not exist on server.
