    Hello,

    My server got hacked a few days ago. As soon as I came to know I took over the control & change my root password. I gave my root password to Fantastico team for fixing my fantastico installation. After that I noticed I am no more receiving any notification emails from server. Before this I receive every email like account creation, modification, termination etc... I tried to change mail server from Courior to other but the problem is same. Please help me

    The root contact or root notification may have been disabled or changed.

    Are you able to manually send mail without any problem?
    If no, then it's a mail issue.

    If yes, then you will have to tail the mail logs while triggering the root contact and see what the logs say.

    Hi,

    Do you receive any bounce back messages? You'd need to study the headers of those emails.. go through the mail logs, to check if the server is sending out spam or bulk emails, etc etc. Run a chkrootkit + rkhunter. Disable SSH access to certain IPs only, in short.. harden your server :)

    The email services would get better once your server gets in a good position ;)
