For cPanel & WHM version 64
(Home >> Email >> Email Routing)
This interface allows you to configure how the system routes a domain's incoming mail.
For example, you can use this interface to configure the server as a backup mail exchanger, which will hold a domain's mail until the primary mail exchanger is available.
Misconfigured Email Routing settings can disrupt your ability to receive mail. If you are unsure which option to choose, contact your system administrator or hosting provider.
To configure how your server routes mail for a domain, perform the following steps:
If the configured Mail Exchange (MX) records do not resolve, automatic detection will not occur.
Local Mail Exchanger — The server always accepts mail for this domain. The system will deliver mail to the local mailbox.
Choose this option if your server uses smart hosts or another gateway service to filter mail.
Backup Mail Exchanger — The server functions as a backup mail exchanger. The system will hold mail for this domain until a lower number mail exchanger becomes available .
You must configure the primary MX record to point to the appropriate exchanger.
Remote Mail Exchanger — The server will not accept mail for this domain. The system sends all mail for this domain to the lowest numbered mail exchanger.
