How to Set up Email Notifications via cPanel/WHM?

The article provides guidance on setting up Email Notifications in cPanel/WHM and highlights the situations when it's crucial to do so. WHM/cPanel offers the capability to configure notifications for significant server changes or issues, encompassing events like exceeded incoming email thresholds, update failures, account creation, and memory limitations. This proactive approach aids in detecting alterations and averting common server problems.

When you're prepared to configure Email Notifications, follow these steps:

  1. If you're a VPS user, notable server issues or changes, such as Account Setup or Exceeding Memory Limits, may affect you.

  2. To stay informed about these server events, utilize WHM to establish email notifications for cPanel accounts.

How to Set Up Email Notifications:

  1. With your root account, log into the WHM panel.

  1. From the navigation menu, select "Server Configuration".

  1. Select the "Contact Information" option after clicking on "Basic WebHost Manager® Setup."

  1. Input the email address where notifications from the server will be sent. You can enter one or multiple email addresses to contact in the event of a server issue, separating each address with a comma.

  2. Once you've added all your email addresses, scroll down to the bottom and choose the "Save Changes" option.

  1. The server will save the provided email address for sending notifications.

  • (Now, adjust the notification settings according to their priority.)

  1. Go back to the Home page of the WHM interface.

  1. Choose "Server Contacts" from the navigation menu.

  1. Click on "Contact Manager." Here, you can modify the system settings to send email notifications based on their priority.

  1. Choose the priority of email notifications you wish to receive from the drop-down menu in the "Receives" section of Basic WebHost Manager under "Communication Type."

  1. Afterward, click the "Save" button.

  1. You can now choose the "Alert Type" and assign it a priority level from the drop-down list in the "Importance" column by navigating to the "Notifications" tab.
