    I haven't played with cPanel/WHM yet so apologies if this is obvious...

    Is it possible to make a cPanel server function as a secondary MX for a domain that's hosted elsewhere?

    Many thanks,

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes :)

    You just need to setup an MX record with a higher priority value pointing to the cPanel server.

    Then add the domain into the file:
    /etc/secondarymx
