Hello,

I just found out email isn't working on server 2. I ran the /scripts to change it to version 5 on both machines. One machine appears to work okay while the second one will not send email at all. It all bounces back. What version has everything working and is there a way to upgrade cpanel/whm to working versions without using the auto-update?

Thanks

Fixed. It was ocurring because I hadn't given the server a valid hostname. The provider had given it a generic temp name and I had failed to edit it.
