    We have a client that wants to redirect his email to a different ip then what is one his account a different server ip from ours.


    Inside WHM when I edit his domain name he has a entry there like

    mail ---- 14440 cname .hisdomainname.com
    Can I just change hisdomainname.com out and put his new ip there for the redirect?

    Or do I have to so something else to make this happen?

    Hello,

    remove the cname entry

    mail ---- 14440 cname .hisdomainname.com

    keep only the mx entry

    and add and A entry for mail.hisdomainname.com with IP.

    This will route all mail to new IP

    Regards,
