    I've just set up three new VPS', all with cPanel. Two of them are using Xen and one is using VMWare Server. I have set up the three identically as far as I know.

    The VMWare Server VPS is working perfectly, but the two Xen VPS' aren't sending me an e-mails regarding server activity (backups, cPanel updates etc). I have also installed CSF/LFD and I am not getting any e-mails from that either. I have set my contact e-mail address under "Change System Mail Preferences" and have verified that it is correct. My mail queue in WHM is empty.

    Can someone please help me diagnose this issue? I am unsure where to start, as I don't know how WHM sends it's e-mails (Exim, Sendmail etc). I can send an e-mail from SSH using the "mail" command correctly.

    Recheck the email address at : Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup >> Server Contact E-Mail Address
    I'd recommend reinstalling CSF/LFD & configuring it properly to use the correct email addresses. Also, make sure if the email address is using remote MX/mail-servers then remove it's entry from /etc/localdomains & add in /etc/remotedomains

    Yep, definitely have the right e-mail address set and I have tried two different e-mail addresses and neither work.

    Disabling CSF/LFD does not do anything so it's not the firewall giving me troubles.

    I have confirmed that creating an account on the server and then creating an e-mail address for that account works, it can send an receive e-mails.

    There's nothing in exim_mainlog (or rejectlog or paniclog) so the e-mail isn't even getting sent :(

    It seems like CSF/LFD actually are sending me their e-mails, so I'm just missing the e-mails for things like cPanel updates, backups, cron jobs etc etc.

    My e-mail is set for root and cpanel, and nobody is left blank.

    Ok, and how about the Contact Manager, is that setup the same as your other servers?

    Have you tried sending email to that email address you have configured to ensure the email address works?

    Yeah the e-mail address is fine, it's my main daily e-mail account :) I've tried multiple e-mail accounts anyway and none of them work!
