lowest numbered MX record points to local host

For some reason, when you create new accounts in WHM the file /etc/localdomains may not get updated. That file is important for for email delivery if the MX entry of the domain is pointing to localhost, or you’re using a local mailserver.

So in order to fix this login WHM, then “Edit DNS Zone”, select the domain you want to fix, click “Edit” and then save the zone. Clicking “Save”, will automatically put the entry in the localdomains, if that doesn’t work out you could always access your server via ssh as root and edit /etc/localdomains manually.
