    I have recently moved all the domains from one server to a new server using WHM account transfer option. After migration I have seen that the domains who are not pointing their MX records to our server should be listed in /etc/remotedomains file.

    But it does not listed automatically in that file. Should I need to manually add all those domains in /etc/remotedomains file in new server?

    I am using cPanel 11.24.4-S35075 - WHM 11.24.2 version on both the servers.

    Exim looks up the MX record for the domain and searches for an entry within the following file: /etc/localdomains, if existent the router is skipped. For Remote mail servers /etc/remotedomains

    Edit the /etc/remotedomains file

    this tells Exim to not handle mail for this domain.
    pico /etc/remotedomains

    Add the domain name to this file.
    Save the changes.

    Yes..I am aware about this. But, my question is why is it not creating entries in /etc/remotedomains automatically when I transfer a domains from one server to other servers?

    Do I need to add entries manually?
