    Am trying to change the #host_accept_relay = localhost but when i uncoment the hash and save i get the error:
    option host_accept_relay unknown
    Does that option no longer work or am i missing something?

    That option is from Exim 3. I don't know why cPanel has left it in there.

    You shouldn't need to - it's dealt with by the accept hosts = : statement at the top of the RCPT ACL.

    Problem i have is, although users can send and receive mail ok, people signing up for apps like phpbb or invision board are not receiving notifications of there new membership. Unless ofcourse they allready have an account on the server. So my guess is i need to allow localhost to relay.

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed, that is what the accpet hosts: line is for. You haven't disable nobody from sending email in WHM > Tweak Settings, have you? Do you also have nobody's email set to a valid email address in WHM > Change System Mail Preferences?
