    I have a cpanel server named server10.somedomain.com. I want to setup email aliases for example to admin@server10.somedomain.com but I can't add a domain with the same name as the server name.

    How do I setup email for the actual server name?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Hello :)

    Configuring the hostname as an actual domain name under an account is not supported. Instead, you should utilize the following option in Web Host Manager to forward system emails to an existing email address:

    "WHM Home » Server Contacts » Edit System Mail Preferences"

    Thank you.
