    Hi,
    I am new to cpanel. My question is, why root is not getting emails. I want root to get emails of usual Logwatch daily, plus security or malicious script alert mails, which happens on servers without cpanel software. I added some aliases in /etc/aliases file. Like:

    mailer-daemon: postmaster
    postmaster: root
    apache: root

    etc. But for system to take these changes into account, the sendmail/mailman/exim (whatever is running there?) to restart i guess (?). How do i do it. When previously i tried to send an email to root, root didnt get the email but i got the message in /var/log/exim_mainlog file:

    User 0 set for local_delivery transport is on the never_users list
    root@ns1.domain.com R=localuser T=local_delivery defer (-29): User 0 set for local_delivery transport is on the never_users list

    so in the file /etc/exim.conf i put a hash # before "never_users = root"

    but i am still geting error in the same file as
    <= root@ns1.domain.com U=root P=local S=453 id=20050409111907.GA31139@ns1domain.com
    => root <root@ns1.domain.com> R=localuser T=local_delivery
    Completed

    Another question, when i am trying to install pine through, it gives error
    root@ns1 [~]# rpm -ivh pine-4.62-1.i386.rpm
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    file /usr/bin/mailutil from install of pine-4.62-1 conflicts with file from package imap-utils-2002d-9

    root@ns1 [~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 4)

    any idea how to do it?
