    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

    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"
