    I must be missing something on this one...

    I'm just setting up 4 new machines.

    server1.domain.com
    server2.domain.com
    server3.domain.com
    server4.domain.com

    I want email notifications to be sent to admin@domain.com, which email is hosted on a completely different server.

    I have set the email address admin@domain.com in WHM -> Server contacts -> Change System Mail Preferences, but the mail messages continue to be addressed to root@serverX.domain.com. I have also tried modifying /root/.forward to include the alias as follows, but it hasn't worked as well.

    Code:
    root admin@domain.com
    I'm sure it's something simply I'm overlooking today...

    Whats the server contact email address

    Basic cPanel/WHM Setup -> Server Contact E-Mail Address

    Also try setting all the settings (root's mail, nobody's mail and cpanel's mail) under Change System Mail Preferences to admin@domainname.com
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Hello,

    IF you need mails from server to be sent to some specific address then the correct option for it is:

    WHM >> Change System Mail Preferences

    Set here Cpanel to root
    Nobody to Blank
    and root to "your e-mail address"
