    Hi DOMAINNAME.COM is hosted in SERVER A by setting DNS A Record.

    But I want to admin@DOMAINNAME.COM in SERVER B (WHM).

    What should I do for DNS records and/or in WHM of SERVER B???:confused:

    Hello,

    First you will have to point your domain MX record to server "B" and then setup the "Remote Mail Exchanger" for that domain on server "A" you can do it through following steps

    Login your server "A" through In WHM > DNS Functions > Edit DNS Zone area, select the domain in question and click the "Edit" button. In the new screen that loads, scroll to the bottom and you will see the following:

    Select the "Remote Mail Exchanger" radio button and click the "Save" button,

    Once it's done create the cPanel Account on your server "B" and create your mail account through cPanel on server "B"

    Hello :)

    You will simply configure the MX records on the DNS host to point to the hostname of the cPanel server, and then ensure the "A" record for "mail" points to the IP address of the cPanel server. Then, ensure you create the account on the cPanel server and add the email accounts. The steps in the previous post are only required if the DNS server uses cPanel.

    Thank you.
