    Iam trying to build an enviroment to have a main robust mail server and other machines connecting to it.

    Mail server
    Quadcore 5gb ram, 2x 500gb

    Web server
    Quadcore 2gbram, 2x 500gb

    Id like to know if you guys know any trick to do it, first of all i need to change the DNS template on the webserver, to point the MX entry to the Mail server. And them? What about the /etc/localdomains e and /etc/remotedomains, what should be done? I will also change the MAIL link on the cpaneltheme from the WEBSERVER to point to the mailmanager of the MAILSERVER, so the customer will always create the mail accounts on the mail servers, wich will be used only for e-mail. I would also do it with the WEBMAIL entry of the domains...

    Would it work? Anyone here knows what should be done with localdomains and remotedomains? Any other step is necessary? Anyone had tried it before?
