    I have a whm vps with a few cpanel accounts each with its own domain. For one of these domains i purchased recently an office 365 business license and i changed the dns records according to microsoft specs. Company's website is still on that cpanel account. Everything is working fine except if i send an email from one of the other cpanel accounts to an address with an office 365 account email is caught in cpanel by the default email account. Emails sent from anywhere else are getting fine in any of that office 365 email addresses. Clearly an email routing issue but i could use some help to fix it.

    add the domain that is using office 365 to the /etc/remotedomains file
    or edit the DNS zone for the domain and select Remote Mail Exchanger

    I guess you also need to remove the domain using office 365 from /etc/localdomains entry.. this will fix the problem.

    the email service outside of your hosting is required to update the MX records too

    Obviously!
    Even if that domain was in /etc/remotedomains and removed from /etc/localdomains i had to switch to remote mail exchanger. That did the trick.
    Thank you!

    Hello!
    Maybe i'm missing something but where is the problem? Office 365 users don't have to use microsoft servers for email hosting. You can keep their emails on your server.

    Hello!
    It is possible to have just a few users to Office 365 and keep the rest on your existing email system. You can read this for more info.
