    I've asked this before and nobody responsed but is there anyway to disable these damn cpanel daily run emails??? I'm travelling the next week and have to use a dial up so whenever I receive these emails it looks up my mail client for a long time because the message is around 8 MBs. If anybody knows how to disable the security and daily run emails please let me know.

    fist of all, for dialup i'd recommend webmail :)

    second.

    how come your emails from cpanel are so big?
    i only get about 200KB/s Logwatch(with 10 at verbose mode), and 500KB for upcp(that condains log for cpanel ftp backup).

    third.

    go into whm, go to Edit Setup, and change the email address there.
    easy :)

    anyway, first advice is better :)

    and of course, editing the daily crons and setting /dev/null as the output is the best :)

    I don't like to use webmail because there's too much clicking involved and it's more difficult because I use the keypad.

    I have no idea why the emails are so but they have been this way ever since I started using cPanel over a year ago.

    If I change the email address then I won't receive these unwanted emails but i also will not receive the emails that do need that are sent to my admin address.

    Can you tell me which entries I'd need to change to /dev/null?

    Be stupid and disable the best help you have for monitoring your server. When a hacker atackes it you will maybe know when it goes down 5 times in a day. When a disk get's a error you will know when it breaks totaly and all backup has been messed up. You will know when load is huge because clients will call you and ask why it takes so long.

    Or be smart a read the mail from the server:)

    Ifg you are too lazy to click to much and to read server logs, maybe you should not manage your own server.

    Sorry, but what does that have anything to do with not wanting to use webmail while using a laptop while travelling?? I never said anything about not reading log files. I have no reason that I need to receive these stupid daily log emails that are over 8 MBs in size and I just want to disable them. If you're going to reply, please make some sense.

    If there is trouble, it will find me
    crontab -e

    The one with /scripts/upcp is the one you want to set to /dev/null

    Or you could have it like I do: Have ALL server emails go to a specific "role account" (such as <servername>@<offsiteaddress>) which then redirects to your personal email address. When you go on vacation, just redirect the email to somebody else who will be looking after the servers while you are away.

    The way I see email addresses, is if it's sent to my direct email - it's for my direct attention, it must be read and nobody else can probably deal with the issue. If it's sent to a "role" address, then it /may/ be able to be 'ignored' (depending on Outlook filtering on the contents) and anybody could deal with the contents of the email.
