Hey Guys!! I'm a cpanel Newbie. I've been google/reading and I cant seem to figure out this problem.

I have cpanel 11.34.1 (build 7).

I have about 100 domains.

I setup catch all emails for each domain

I forward each one to a gmail account.

each catch all gets 20-50 emails per day.

Each day..later on in the day... it seems like the total system has reached some kind of "limit". And the emails stop being forwarded. then later on usually the next day..they start again.

How do I adjust/Remove what ever limit is causing this?

Thank you so much for any help.

My advice. Never use catch alls. All they do is give spammers and huge amount of junk email addresses to send to you and never let people know when they get an email address wrong. I have a client who used at catchall on his previous host, so when he switched to my server without the catchall active, his account was getting a few thousand No Such User Founds a day due to spammers using a ton of bad email addresses.

I appreciate your advice...but thats not an option for me. I know exactly where the emails *should* come from, so I can whitelist those if I need be. I've been doing this a long long time using godaddy to do this (300-400 Domains)..and its never been an issue. But Now that I have my own Cpannel...I keep reaching some type of Limit...

WHM -> Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings -> Mail

There's a few options here that can affect the forwarding of email like:

Max hourly emails per domain

It also may be that the gmail is delaying you due to quantity or spaminess of the emails.

Under WHM -> Email -> Mail Queue Manager, you can review the status of any delayed messages.
