    Let's say you were moving your server to a new box when you do a backup and restore to a new clean Linux and cPanel does the backup grab everything needed for doing such a move?
    Things like clients e-mails, settings, domains, etc. If not how can a person do a backup in case of failure or crash?

    When you are restoring from a full server backup, the only prerequisite is a functioning cPanel/WHM. Keep in mind server-specific settings such as hostname and IP addresses are not stored in full server backups, but everything else is.

    Yes. the cpanel backup for each domain will include all its mails, database, webfiles, filter and forwarder mail settings etc.
