    I received a reply to this question on another forum that said

    Any feedback on this suggestion? Also since I've got the other clients tlds (net|org, etc) parked on the account, would I delete and move these as well?


    On a particular VPS I have a Joomla! install.

    I have a client that is using their own name servers and not mine; so in cPanel I deleted the DNS for this client and the site resolves fine.

    See this post for a little background

    I'm trying to understand how Site > Global Configuration > Mail Settings would work if the option is set to 'SMTP Server' and the client entered their mail server User Name - Password - and Host info

    How would the mail leave my VPS and be routed to their mail server? Since the DNS has been deleted, no MX records exist for this client on my VPS.

    This would pertain to user registration (Admin approval is required) lost passwords or even using the 'Mass Mail' feature of J!

    If the mail is configured outside the server (Eg google apps) the domainname should be in /etc/remotedomains not in /etc/localsomains.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
