    Is there a way to send a client with 100 emails and have them use a remote email service so it does not bog down our main hosting servers?

    Sure. Set up the email accounts on the new service (pop3 accounts / forwarders (aliases) / mailing lists). Then go into your /cpanel interface for the client's account and click and click on the "MX Entry" icon.

    a. remove any MX's in there currently.
    b. add all of the MXs that the new email provider (such as Google) provides you

    Google has documents that tell you exactly what their MXs are. When you sign up for Google for Domains they tell you exactly what the MXs need to be.
    c. still in the "MX Entry" screen, change the mail routing to "Remote"
    d. save

    Then in the Email Authentication (or whatever its called) icon in cpanel, turn off the DKIM / SPF.

    Then, if you need to add additional things like cnames (for google docs, webmail, etc) you can add them via the DNS Editor or Advanced DNS editor.

    The bottom line is that you simply set up the accounts on the new server, change the MX records in the cPanel interface to be those which the new email service requires, and make sure you set the mail routing to Remote. That's all.
