    Hello,

    in WHM / Basic WebHost Manager Setup, i have set my contact e-mail as something@mydomain.com

    and it seems that WHM is sending system e-mails (like user XY exceeded its bandwidth, user account created..) to root@servername.mydomain.com
    the mydomain.com is hosted on external different WHM server, but because on external server is DNS A record to redirect servername.mydomain.com requests back to local server, it seems that these root@*** mails are ending up on my local server and filling the mailbox.

    Please any idea how to make WHM send these system e-mails to something@mydomain.com instead of root@myserver.mydomain.com ?

    Thank You

    Hello,

    You can browse to "WHM >> Edit System Mail Preferences" and update the forwarding addresses to the email address of your preference. Also, check to verify your server's hostname is included in the /etc/localdomains file on the cPanel server.

    Thank you.
