    Hi all.

    I'd like to know if Cpanel has an "easy" way to set up an external mail server for all/some accounts. I've though is this config but it's mainly "manual":

    Server 1:

    Exim
    -- Local apps (forms, fe) to be able to send emails
    Dns
    -- MX for the accounts -> mail.domain.com
    -- Rest points to local
    Http
    -- www.domain.com and site configuration via Cpanel

    Server 2:

    Exim
    -- Get emails for user's accounts
    -- Send user's email, wheather via SMTP or Webmail
    Http:
    -- Webmail for the accounts and email configuration via Cpanel

    In this config I've a question: would it be needed to tell explicitly CPanel at server 1 not to manage emails locally, but send them to Server 2?

    I'd be easy to have emails like user@mail.domain.com, but I'm confused about user@domain.com

    Thanks for your time!, and sorry for my English

    David
