We can enable DKIM and SPF to the account by clicking the corresponding options from DNS settings.  These two options are using as spam prevention methods.

If the nameservers of the domain are going to be on another server, select the option ‘Use the nameservers specified at the Domain’s Registrar’.

If you want to check for DNS zones that may conflict, you can click the option ‘Overwrite any existing DNS zones for the account’. That will overwrite the existing DNS zone.


Step 9. Mail Routing Settings

We can use mail routing settings to specify how mail should be routed for the newly created account. You can select one of the following.

Automatically Detect Configuration – This is the default and recommended configuration.  It automatically detects the suitable settings.

Local Mail exchanger – It accepts mail locally for the new account.

Backup Mail Exchanger – This option configure the server to be a backup mail exchanger.

Remote Mail Exchanger – This option can we used, if it do not accept mail locally for the domain.

After updating the details, you can click ‘Create’ button to create the account.

So by this way you can easily create cpanel accounts in WHM.
