Please advise what happens exactly when my cPanel licence expires. My host currently does not allow me to downgrade my cPanel licence hence I have to let it expire and may have to endure 1-3 days of unlicenced cPanel for the various systems to register.

In particular:
1) Will e-mails still work? (Yes?)
2) Will user cron jobs run? (Yes?)
3) Will cPanel auto update? (No?)
4) Can I login to cPanel? (No?)
5) Anything else that will break

Hey there! We try and avoid publishing a complete list of what happens in this scenario as we don't want to encourage users to let their license lapse so they can have a bare minimum experience.

In general, the cPanel and WHM interfaces will not function, and email access will not work either as we shut off the authentication system for email users. Crons should still run as those aren't handled by cPanel tools.
