How to configure a domain to use an external mail server

    This instrution is not finished as I understand it. When I set it up as described I still miss the part where I can configure the Mail in Plesk whereby I could accept incomming Mails from an another domain.

    Else I get a 

    554 5.7.1 <e-mail-adress>:Relay access denied

    Would be happy If you could explain it to the end.

    Kind regards Kirill

    Hi there Kirill Häuptli

    Thanks for the input.

    This instruction is complete - once MX record points to an external mail server and mail service is disabled for a domain, Plesk stops managing mail for this domain in any way.

    Hi Kuzma

    I have setup 2 external mx record for emails but they are still being sent through the internal mail server, do you know if I need to change other setting too?
