Hello :)

The following files can be modified to alter the email addresses normally configured in "WHM Home » Server Contacts » Edit System Mail Preferences" for "root" and "cpanel":
Code:
/root/.forward
/var/cpanel/userhomes/cpanel/.forward
Thank you.

As cPanelMichael told in his reply above:
"The following files can be modified to alter the email addresses normally configured in "WHM Home » Server Contacts » Edit System Mail Preferences" for "root" and "cpanel".

Edited to update: You can update these values by editing the following files:

/var/cpanel/iclevels.conf > Alert Priority Assignment
/var/cpanel/clevels.conf > Alert Contact Priority Assignment

Thank you.

Upon researching the issue, I found that the alert priorities configured in the "Contact Manager" are not saved in a file on the server. You must change the values via Web Host Manager.

Thank you.
We were presented with this same question from a client today and the information posted here is incorrect.
You can adjust the "Alert Priority Assignment" for Contact Manager via the file located at /var/cpanel/iclevels.conf

Code:
# cat /var/cpanel/iclevels.conf
Notice 3
cPHulk 1
checkperlmodules 3
cpbackup 2
disabledigest 3
hackcheck 1
ipcheck 2
kernelcheck 2
killacct 0
newmailcgi 3
oopscheck 1
parkadmin 0
rpmcheck 3
smartcheck 3
suspendacct 0
unsuspendacct 0
upacct 0
wwwacct 0
You can also adjust the "Alert Contact Priority Assignment" via /var/cpanel/clevels.conf

Code:
# cat /var/cpanel/clevels.conf
CONTACTAIM 0
CONTACTUIN 0
CONTACTEMAIL 1
CONTACTPAGER 0

No problem.

Also note that if you don't see these files, it means you have never saved or altered the default settings. Just save the settings you want via WHM and then push out the files to as many servers as you like.
