    Good Morning,

    I just have some questions about Server Contacts -> Edit System Mail Preferences.

    1. Currently, I get the nightly Cron Daemon emails, and I'd rather not get them. Is there a way just to disable those, and nothing else?

    2. If I take all forwarding out, do the messages get routed to /dev/null, or just stay in the cpanel/root/nobody inboxes?

    3. Does anything critical ever get sent via these mailboxes?

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    1. You can run the "crontab -e" command and modify the cron entries to disable email notifications. For example, the upcp cron job would look like this if you wanted to disable email notifications:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp --cron >/dev/null 2>&1
    2. This is explained under "System email accounts" on the Edit System Mail Preferences - Documentation - cPanel Documentation document.

    3. You can see a list of all notifications, and information about how to set the priority of each notification at Contact Manager - Documentation - cPanel Documentation.

    Thanks!
