Allow Null MX records

Not Planned

A Null MX record is a way for a domain to state that it doesn't accept any emails.
If a domain has no MX records, the A or AAAA record is used as a fallback instead.

Currently, cPanel does not accept a Null MX record.

To allow for Null MX records, the DNS administrator has to create an MX record with priority 0 and a dot (".") as the target.

As a cPanel user who does not need to accept email, it would be great if cPanel supported Null MX records. There's no reason that the server should spend time and resources trying to deliver emails for a domain that doesn't want to accept emails.

Thanks for the feedback on this! I can definitely see how this would be useful. It's not on our current roadmap, so I'm going to mark it not planned at the moment, but we will come back here to update this once we have it worked into our roadmap. I'm going to touch base with the team and see what it would take to allow this in the zone editor(s).
