    Hi,

    under Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup it's possible to choose mail to SMS, but the most of provider asks for a password in email subject.
    So, when cPanel tries to send a SMS notification, BulkSMS reports: authentication failed!
    It there a way to edit it's SMS mail template so that i can write my password in the subject?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello :)

    To verify, are you seeking to include the root password to your server in the subject line of an email? If so, that seems like a bad security practice. Does this provider offer any other solutions for logging into your system that are more secure?

    Thank you.

    The SMS integartion works according to the definitions you can find by clicking on the SysAid on Line help. So, for this you require root password of the server.
