    Hello all,

    I have what I am sure a really stupid question...How do I "populate" the contact emails in WHM? It is not an option when creating an account and I do not find it anywhere within WHM.

    Thank you ahead of time.

    WHM -> Server Setup -> Edit setup, there is something like this.

    Server Contact E-Mail Address:

    add ur contact address there.

    No that is not what I meant.

    I mean when I List Accounts it is supposed to show a contact email for each account. And when I click Email All Users there is no email to send to.

    Thanks

    Those emails are in files called .contactemail in each users home directory.

    I use the postwwwacct script to automatically put the default email in there.

    Once the account is created in WHM, log in to cpanel for that account and click update contact info, that's probably the easy way...
