    Hi,

    Please excuse me if I do not use the correct terms as I am relatively new to cPanel and WHM.

    I am a reseller customer so do not have root access to the server or full functionality of WHM.

    My problem is that upon checking Mail Delivery Reports I notice that emails are being sent from root to an account that (as far as I know) does not exist. This is happening every minute until limits have been reached.

    I have posted the event details below.

    I have checked the default email account for the user in question but it is empty.

    Could this be a problem with a script on one of my websites?

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    Kind Regards
    Diane

    Hello,

    The thread referenced in the previous response should help, but you may also want to reach out to your web hosting provider for additional assistance in determining the source/reason for the initial email that triggered the root@hostname message.

    Thank you.
