    Hi Everyone,
    Just a quick question (hopefully!).

    I noticed that we hadn't received any system emails from one of our servers for quite a while, so decided to have a look around to see what I could find.

    I discovered the all system emails were being sent from

    And as such were causing the following error:

    Code: R=localuser T=local_delivery defer (-29): User 0 set for local_delivery transport is on the never_users list
    This is obviously because root is on the never_users list in the Exim config, and removing this would no doubt fix the issue.

    BUT, should the system emails be coming from root@ in the first place. On all other servers the system mails come from

    So my question is, how can I change the system email from address? Or would I just be better removing root from the never_users list?

    Thanks in advance.

    This is correct. All system emails from root are sent to your email address you have setup in WHM.
    WHM Main Menu > Server Contacts > Change System Mail Preferences
