    We've had 2 email addresses set in WHM's "basic cpanel/WHM setup"

    ie. something@xxxx.com, somethingelse@yyyy.com

    This has worked fine for over 2 years allowing myself and a co-admin to receive email notifications. Running easyapache failed after building and told me that the problem was the 2 emails separated by the comma.

    I did not realize things had changed with easyapache to store config files in the datastore so when I edited the contact email field easyapache now would not run at all. So I edited the httpd.conf file directly and to make a long story short... killed apache for an hour or so until I read the easyapache documentation and found the datastore info and how to update the datastore with the distiller.

    Yes, I should have read the documentation first :)

    Just trying to help others avoid this 'problem'. Read the easyapache doc: http://www.cpanel.net/support/docs/ea/ea3/ea3_changes.html

    You can't just edit httpd.conf anymore.

    Nevermind. If the contact emails are separated by a space, the Distiller chokes. If they aren't separated by a space, it works fine.

    Ahh... good to know. So just a comma to separate them and no space?

    Thanks!
