Why is the server assuming I will want to use mail.domain?

    Hi.

    Why is it that, when I add a new account (and thus, domain) to the server, that it automatically assumes I will want to use mail.domain.tld? I have disabled all features pertaining to email and won't use email at all on the server, ever.

    This isn't a big issue of course as long as it stays hidden, but as soon as I go to generate a certificate through Let's Encrypt (or cPanel/Comodo for that matter), I end up with lots of "WARN The domain “mail.domain.tld” failed domain control validation", which I don't want.

    Ok yea that's within each account, but I wanna remove those entries (that will never be used on this server, ever) from all accounts. Is that not possible? And if not, why are these standard? To me it makes no sense that they are since no setup is like any other.

    Hello,

    The use of the "mail" alias for all domain names is standard as of cPanel version 60. Here's the corresponding entry in the cPanel 60 Release Notes that explains the purpose of this:

    If you'd like to see the exclusion handled separately (e.g. globally instead of per domain name), then I encourage you to add feedback to the following feature request:

    AutoSSL: Prevent specific domains from being issued free SSL certificates

    Thank you.

    Ok I understand.

    I'll give some feedback :)
