    Hi everyone. I have changed the MX record to point to an Microsoft Exchange server, and where it says Email Routing I checked off Remote mail exchanger
    My questions is, is there anything else that I should change to redirect all emails to the exchange server?

    I see two A record www.mail and mail pointing to the servers IP - do I need to change these?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Simply changing the MX record is all that is needed in order to forward the mail delivery to that server.

    If you want users to have the ability to connect to the Exchange server by using the mail.domain.com sub-domain, then you'll also want to change that A record.

    Hello,

    Also don't forget to put the domain name into the remote domains list on your cPanel server.

    Thank you.
