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
[email protected] 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
<= [email protected] U=root P=local S=453 [email protected]
=> root <[email protected]> R=localuser T=local_delivery
Completed

Another question, when i am trying to install pine through latest rpm, it gives error
[email protected] [~]# 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

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

any idea how to do it?
