    Hi,

    I have a cpanel account created with the default e-mail address - default (@) domain.com -
    But i use for my e-mails another server . I changed the MX entry in cpanel with my email server ns's to be able receive over there all the e-mail.
    The problem is that a form that i have in my site send all the e-mails to my default cpanel email account. I would like to remove this cpanel default address in order to receive the e-mails in my email server.
    How i remove the default email account from my cpanel account ?
    Or, is there any better way to fix this issue ?

    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    You need to remove the domain from /etc/localdomains and put it into /etc/remotedomains (create that file if it doesn't exist). Then email for the domain will be sent off-server instead of locally.
