Add an option to change the default mail routing option from Local Routing to one of your choice

Needs Review

As a webhosting provider, I would like an option added to be able to change the default mail routing from "Local Routing" to one of my choosing.


Third Party Mail Providers & Hosting Emails...

We as like many other providers are moving away / have moved away from providing email services as the likes of GSuite & Office365 offer far superior email services and have a far larger infrastructures than the vast majority of WHM/cPanel users have.

For my business, we ideally would remove "Automatic Routing", "Local Routing" and "Backup Routing" as options if we could because we don't take on any customers that require this functionality but of course I can't request for this functionality to be removed as plenty of users will still use them.


How this functionality would need to work

Ideally this functionality would work globally, similar to how the current global setting is "Local Routing" the new functionality would let you change that to any of the 5 routing options.


This would have to apply to both the feature of creating a "New Account" as well as automatically applying to new domains added to a cPanel account.


For example, on creating a new account if the default had been set to "Remote Mail Exchanger" then when you expand the Mail Routing Settings section you would see the following (Bold, selected and marked as "Default")

How this affects me

Every time I create a new cPanel account I have to remember to change the routing to "Remote Routing" and likewise when I create new domains on a cPanel account I have to remember to change the routing.


I cloned a cPanel account earlier today and I initially forgot to set the routing to remote routing which led to 10mins of confusion but could very easily lead to more issues.


Hopefully that is nice and clear for everyone!


Thanks
