    Hi,

    One of my clients is running their own mail server and they want to use my server as a secondary MX for their domain. Is it possible to set my server up as a secondary mail server for a single domain, and still stay as the main mail server for all other domains?

    Thanks :)

    Yes, simply make the MX changes in the domain's DNS from "WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS zone" if dns is handled with you. Make sure you have the entry of the domain in question in both /etc/localdomains and /etc/remotedomains file.

    JPC-Howard, are you sure domain are to be listed in both, localdomains & remotedomains?
    Wouldn't it cause email land to local email inbox in the case email delivered to main (cPanel) server?

    What about /etc/secondarymx file? I suppose it is for domains for which we act as Secondary (Backup) MX server.

    I've created similar thread with no response on it, could you take a quick look on it?
