Simple suggestion. I added a domain that uses an external MX (Gsuite). I couldnt get it to work until I realized I had to go to 'MX records' and select the checkbox (use this server to handle my e-mail). I know I've seen the MX option under the control panel, but it didnt dawn on me that there was a check box there that controlled the email in addition to setting up the DNS. I'd like to just suggest a simple line of text on the DNS screen that notifies a user to check the MX screen if they are using external MX. Thanks!

Good idea. Disabling/enabling local delivery is the most confusing part, and we have many tickets from our clients about "why emails are not delivered" because of it.

Yep good idea.
Or maybe create a detection like cPanel has. So if one of the local ip's is not used, local mx is disabled automatically, or by selection choice., but on the same page.
So loose the seperate mx page as it is now and put all on the same page.
