    We have the "standard" Zone Template setup with the MX Record pointing to an external mail server.

    However it seems that whenever we create a new account the domain is listed in /etc/localdomains and not in /etc/remotedomains.

    We were recently updated to WHM 11.15.0/cPanel 11.18.6-R24255 but this has been an issue since the "Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server" option appeared.

    We also have an issue where there "Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server" is always "checked" regardless of the domain being listed in /etc/remotedomains.

    We are using managed web hosting service and they said it's a problem with WHM/cPanel.

    Any suggestions for fixing this problem would be great.

    Go on, have a guess
    You might want to disable the option WHM > Tweak Settings > Automatically setup /etc/localdomains, /etc/remotedomains, /etc/secondarymx based on where the mx entry is pointed
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
