    Our setup involves a spam-filtering server before CPanel. All domains have this server as their MX. "Automatically setup /etc/localdomains, /etc/remotedomains, /etc/secondarymx based on where the mx entry is pointed." is unchecked to make this work easily.

    However, some domains would instead like to use Google apps for their mail. The MX's are set up according to Google apps, and "Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server" is unchecked when I enter the DNS information. It does not, however, stay unchecked. Each time I revisit the DNS for that domain, it is checked again. The domain also stays in /etc/localdomains. I have had to add a hack to work around this.

    What am I missing here?
