    Does anyone know how to disable the new account emails that WHM generates to the account owner? I have a reseller who (understandably) doesn't want all of their customer's usernames & password emailed accross the web in clear text. Alternatively, is there a way of hiding the password in these emails?

    Go on, have a guess
    You would have to manually edit /scripts/wwwacct to prevent that and then use pwsowners scripts to watch the file which will revert after a upcp update run.

    If you do want to edit the wwwacct script, the part you need to edit or remove is near the end. Search for SENDMAIL in the script and you'll see where it sends the email. Remove everything from the open(SENDMAIL... to the close(SENDMAIL); lines. The script you'll need of mine is the one called watchwwwacct.
