    I used to receive a LogWatch for my server every day in
    my email, but haven't received one now since June 11.
    Does anyone know what would cause this, and how would
    I fix it to start getting it again?

    I show the following but I'm not getting the emails
    anymore:

    root@server145 [/etc/cron.daily]# locate logwatch
    /usr/sbin/logwatch

    I haven't changed anything. It says to mail to root
    in the config file.

    Mine is set to email an outside address. You might try that and see if you get a response.

    Wayneb,

    Do you have MailScanner installed?

    I installed MailScanner when I got the server, unless
    something happened that it quit working.

    In that case, make sure that you do the following:

    WHM > Exim Configuration Editor > Switch to Advanced Mode:
    # In first box:
    queue_only_override = false

    I changed the mail to address from root to the email
    address I have from my cable internet in my logwatch
    config, and that didn't help. So I have tried Jonathan's
    suggestion now, and will see if I get it tonight. Thanks
    for all the help.

    I finally figured out why I wasn't getting my LogWatch
    anymore. I was getting it, but it was being sent directly
    to my 'Deleted Files' folder. After looking at my
    Message Rules in Outlook Express, I discovered that
    my root email server address had been added to my
    'Blocked Senders List'. I have no idea how it got added
    there, I know I didn't add it.
