Remote Email

Setting up Remote Email

This is now quite easy in Cpanel as they made changes that work well.

You only need to go to MX record and set the IP or domain name of your remote email server there. You can also setup a secondary service which can be the local mail server but you need to set it as the mx Priority as a higher number.

So you would have lets say a mail service named and they may have one called
You can set mx 0 to
mx 10 would be set to
The local would be mx 20 where local is your domain name

Nothing too much to it.
