Update Contact Info - allow customer to use email with their own domain
At some point, cPanel began forcing customers to use an off-site email address for their contact email address, under "Update Contact Info" in cPanel.
If the customer attempts to enter in a locally hosted email account, they are given the error:
Please use an email address that is not at this domain
However, some customers (perhaps most?) do not have multiple email addresses. Their only email may be the email address that they have hosted with us. Thus, customers are frustrated by this requirement.
The argument for forcing customers to use an off-site address is for the situation where their mailbox or disk space quota has been exhausted... they would not get the notification. However, disk quota and mailbox warnings go out at 80% (cPanel default), 90% (cPanel default), and at 98% (cPanel default). So, the customer would get 3 notifications before their disk or mailbox quota is exhausted, even if their notification email address is a local account.
Therefore, I would like to request a new "Tweak Setting" under the "Notifications" section, to give server admins the option of enforcing the off-site email requirement, or not.
Require customer to use an off-site email address for Notifications _yes (default) _no
