    My hostname is server.domain.com and I get a ton of root@server.domain.com emails sent to itself in the mail delivery reports but obviously I have no email at that address. Do I try and create an email for that address and see what it's trying to email itself or troubleshoot it another way?

    The emails are trying to send/receive about 50 times a day.

    If you go here:
    WHM » Server Contacts » Edit System Mail Preferences, do you have off server email addresses setup for each of those items?

    You can enter an email address for the "root" contact so that the email notifications are delivered to an address of your choosing.

    Thank you.
