    Please forgive the basic question but I've manually copied a site over from a Plesk account to cPanel. It uses external email plus has a couple of other CNAME records set up as follows in Plesk:

    Host Record type Value
    domain.com. NS ns.domain.com.
    ns.domain.com. A zzz.zz.118.24
    webmail.domain.com. A zzz.zz.118.24
    domain.com. A zzz.zz.118.24
    autodiscover.domain.com. CNAME autodiscoverredirect.provider.com.
    ftp.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    owa.domain.com. CNAME owaredirect.provider.com.
    www.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    domain.com. MX (0) mxa.provider.com.

    Is it just a matter of setting these up in the Zone File for the domain in WHM as follows?

    domain.com. 86400 IN NS ns1.nameserver.com.
    domain.com. 86400 IN NS xxx.xx.242.212
    localhost 300 IN A 127.0.0.1
    domain.com. 300 IN MX 0 mxa.provider.com.
    mail 300 IN CNAME domain.com.
    www 300 IN CNAME domain.com.
    ftp 300 IN A xxx.xx.242.212
    cpanel 300 IN A xxx.xx.242.212
    whm 300 IN A xxx.xx.242.212
    webmail 300 IN A xxx.xx.242.212
    webdisk 300 IN A xxx.xx.242.212
    autodiscover 300 IN CNAME autodiscoverredirect.provider.com.
    owa 300 IN CNAME owaredirect.provider.com.


    The Plesk account has several email accounts set up but I assume that as the account is using external email they are not needed and are probbaly left over from before they set up the external service?

    Thanks in advance.

    That is correct. Update the Zone File as you noted. Since mail delivery should not be taken on this server, be sure to select "Remote Mail Delivery" at the bottom of the Edit Zone File page as well.
