    I have problems with recieving mail for root (I did set forwarding of root's mail to my address in WHM and also did check it later in the .forward file) - I'm not getting regulary any outputs of cron jobs (especially /scripts/upcp) . Nothing special you say, but what realy suprises me is that I occasionally(once a month for job which runs daily) GET mail for root (like output of /scripts/upcp) and even more often I get it in this rather strange form:

    message couldn't be delivered to root so it was delivered back to root - rather strange.


    Does somebody has similiar expirience?

    Thaks guys


    P.S. Only mail what I get regualary is 'Logwatch'.

    P.P.S : I use last Release version of Whm/Cpanel

    I had this same problem and i couldent figure out what was wrong for about a month, but then i figured it out by mistake.


    My hostname's A entry was set to the wrong nameservers.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Discription of what was wrong:

    for ex. My hostname is x1.securesite1.net and my normal nameservers i use are ns1/ns2.hostmeg.com. the problem was my hostname domain name's nameservers are ns1/ns2.securesite1.net but in the A entry they were set to ns1/ns2.hostmeg.com.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    How to Fix It:

    Make sure you have the nameserver options in the A entry match the nameservers in your hostname's domain name. :)
