    I get this message when entering WHM:

    Your system is currently setup to deliver mail to the superuser (root). For security reasons exim will never deliver mail as root. You need to setup a forward to another address which exim can deliver to.

    What email should I enter? I don't know if it should be mydomain.com or what...??????


    root's mail is currently not being forwarded

    Mail should be forwarded to:


    nobody's mail is currently not being forwarded

    Mail should be forwarded to:


    mailman's mail is currently not being forwarded
    Mail should be forwarded to:




    Thanks

    You can enter the forwarding email addresses in the "Edit Setup" via WHM.

    In addition, you can create a file ".forward" under your root home directory. Put the destination email in the file ".forward" (i.e. email@another.com). So all emails sent to the root can be forwarded to a different emai.
