Disabling DNS might be required in the case when domain is not hosted on provider name servers, but somewhere else.

PLEASE NOTE:
If you are going to change MX records (point mail to your own server) you MUST remove all email accounts and the mail domain from our system under Mail > Domains and Mail > Accounts for this to work.
