I've done a basic search through the forum and could not find an answer to my quesiton, but I have a feeling that is because it is a simple question and I am sorry for that, either way here it goes.

When I create a new account I get an e-mail that says this in the subject line: New account on host.example.com (my hostname is already setup) where do I change the setting to say my server info.

What I am running:

CentOS 6.4
CPanel / WHM 11.38.2

I'm specifically talking about the text host.example.com that should be my own hostname, correct?
Yes.
If it's not go to WHM-> Networking Setup -> Change Hostname
and change it.

I already had that done, it is still sending emails with the "host.example.com" on the emails.
It's doing that because your server's hostname is not set up correctly.

Try in ssh command prompt:
echo $HOSTNAME
what do you get?

Does your server happen to be a VPS?

It is a vps. However, I got it to work. Going back through and re-saving the hostname via your steps (since the hostname was already set up via the hosting service) fixed the problem.

Thanks so much! :)
