    Yes, that is set up and I do receive mail sent to root@server***.****.com. It's mail sent to root@localhost that bounces.

    Hello,

    Can you provide some more information about where the emails sent to the "root@localhost" address are coming from? Is this through a third-party application, or are you referring to notifications offered as part of cPanel & WHM? Is the root contact address setup correctly in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Basic WebHost Manager® Setup"?

    Thank you.

    They are coming from Cloudlinux - ABRT daemon. DoNotReply@server1234.*****.com

    ABRT Daemon <DoNotReply@server1234.******.com>

    Yes, the email is setup correctly as I receive all other notices.

    Detail message says

    Action: failed
    Final-Recipient: rfc822;root@localhost
    Status: 5.0.0

    servers@****.com It's a valid email address which I receive all of the LFD notices at.

    It's just this LVE notice that's the issue.

    If you send yourself a test message, do you receive it?

    From the same server, on the command line run:

    echo test | mail -s test root

    This is what I see what I check the mail in the queue manager.

    'This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    root@localhost
    Unrouteable address'

    Have you contacted CloudLinux about this?

    These message should be going to root but for some reason they are going to root@localhost for you. I don't know where that is configured.

    What is the contents of the /etc/libreport/events.d/mailx_event.conf file?

    cat /etc/libreport/events.d/mailx_event.conf

    What are the Mailx_EmailTo values set to?

    Hello,

    Can you also let us know the contents of the /etc/hosts file (ensuring to replace actual domain names and IP addresses with examples)?

    Thank you.
