    I see all around Internet this features from cPanel, but no indication on how to configure it on WHM. Some users indicate it is on Service Contacts, but I don't see exactly the words about when the server goes down. Please help. Thanks in advance.

    A server which is down can't send a message itself. You could make use of external parties like Hyperspin to monitor your servers uptime.

    The new cPanel lists that as one of its features. Exactly this:

    WHM > Server Configuration > Basic cPanel & WHM Setup, Contact Info tab, make sure this email address is correct.
    WHM > Server Contacts > Contact Manager, set all of these to Priority Low.


    Reboot your server. You don't need to do this, but as services go down and come back up you'll be emailed about them.
