How to disable local mail delivery on WHM (cPanel) and Plesk


In the event your mail is being hosted on a 3rd party server (i.e. gmail) you will want to disable local mail service to prevent your server from attempting to deliver mail locally. This will prevent any mail originating on your server from being "lost" due to being delivered to the wrong location. To do this in Plesk 11, click Domains, then "Open in Control Panel." Now click on the Mail tab at the top of the page. Click change settings, uncheck the box next to "Activate mail service on domain" and click OK. Your server will no longer attempt to deliver mail locally. If you're using WHM/cPanel, log into the domain's cPanel and click MX Entry from the Mail section. Now choose Remote Mail Exchanger in the Email Routing section.
