    OK...

    Maybe I'm having a brain cramp... or changed some other files in the original server setup, and don't recall.

    I needed to change my main WHM email address, as I am moving and getting a new ISP. I changed my email address in WHM setup. But... overnight I still got my cron daemon, and root (logwatch) emails at my old original ISP. I checked the address, in WHM and it was changed.

    So where do I need to change where these messages are sent to? Do I need to change them in individual files, or is there another config area I need to change?

    Thanks for the input! :)

    PS... these are the messages coming from root@my.server.com or root@myserver

    Check /etc/aliases ?? just a guess if it got somehow hardcoded there by accident.

    Thanks tAzMaNiAc,

    But nope... not any manual entries in there.

    I've been watching a couple days, and it WHM emails from root are still going to the old address. However, the ones I was able to change (APF, BFD for example) are working correctly. This makes me feel I must have made a change in another server config file somewhere.

    Unfortunately I am moving across the state right now... and my original notebook where I documented my server changes when I set it up is who knows where!

    Anyone have any additional suggestions?

    Thanks in advance
