I'm setting up a new server, and have come across a problem.

I have all email for the root user, being delivered to [email protected].

This was working this morning, at which time the hostname was only the IP of the server.

After this, I updated the hostname to webhost01.mydomain.com, and installed CSF. Since then, mail delivery for the root user does not work, and I'm getting the following errors (/var/log/exim_mainlog) when mail for root is trying to be delivered.

I'm hoping someone can send me in the right direction.

Am in pretty much the same boat. I'm not getting notified of anything (logwatch, cpupdate, BFD/LFD etc.). If I could just track down which file is being written when updating via 'Change System Mail Preferences' in WHM, I might be able to figure it out. Ideas?

In the order specified, give this a shot.

WHM >> Change System Mail Preferences

Set Cpanel to "root"
Nobody to Blank
and root to "your e-mail address"

It tried this and still no go. I have 2 servers configured them both the same way and my previous server works fine but my new server I just built does not work.

Thoughts?

Figured it out, I had my 2nd server pointing to my main DNS server which did not have a dns entry for the new server therefore the email was not routing properly.
:D
