Cron job running at 12.00 AM despite deleting it / changing its time?

    I have only one cron configured in cPanel for WHMCS to run once per day at 12.00 AM.

    The cron sends daily activity logs to my email.

    A problem came up recently in which the cron job activity logs sent to me are coming from that email which does not exist. Emails are coming from that address without replacing my actual domain name.

    So I deleted the cron job, I created a new one with different timing 8.00 AM. The cron runs correctly at that time and I'm receiving logs from my valid email. However, I still get emails at 12.00 AM too, as If there is another cron job stuck at that time and the logs are coming from that invalid email address

    I looked into the cron configuration file and there were no duplicate entries for crons. I checked with WHMCS support and the software configuration is correct.

    I'm wondering why cron emails come from in the first place and why the cron still runs at 12.00 AM?

    Have anyone had a problem like this before? Any suggestions please?
    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    Try searching for the cron job in one of the following directories if you can't find it in /var/spool/cron/:

    Thank you.
