This used to show the server hostname and was a very handy feature for tracking down the server accounts were on,

Has this feature been disabled and is it possible to have it reenabled? even if it is in the tweak menu.,

Yes, this has been our way to track server names (because no one seems to remember to place their server name in the support requests). We back this idea up, any way we can see this returned?

Yes, it's a complete pain if you ask me. Many customers don't know the server name. I want to just click on their URL and add 2086 to find what server we're dealing with. However now I need to do a lookup on the IP or do a mailserver query via checkdns.net to find the name.

I see no sensible reason why they removed this?

Has anyone found the source code line for this? Perhaps we can stop waiting for the folks at CPanel to resolve this and just resolve it ourselves. Anyone? I would ask, but too busy responding to all the support requests from exim4 and all the other lovely things introduced with this 'stable' release. :rolleyes:

Just leave a ssh window open and ping the domain name. It will show the IP address.
Most of our servers are easy-
*.*.*.21 = server 1
*.*.*.22 = server 2

For the ones that arent so easy just put a handwritten list by the computer- I dont think its that hard...
