WHM Contact Emails

WHM and cPanel notices are sent using the email address specified through the system. These are meant to notify the user of any major changes or updates to WHM or cPanel such as password changes, package changes, etc.

WHM Notices

WHM notices are sent when changes to major versions are made through WHM or when major updates are made to WHM/cPanel itself.

You can only send WHM notices for a cPanel to one email; this should be the reseller owner's email since individual cPanel users can set their own contact email in cPanel for receiving cPanel notices.

To change the email address that receives WHM notices:

  1. Log into WHM.
  2. In the left-side menu, under Account Information, click List Accounts.
  3. Click the + next to the primary domain (the one associated with your billing account).
  4. Under Change Contact Email, type the email address you would like to use.
  5. Click Change.
There is no way to change the email address from where the notice email is sent; it will always be sent from the server (whm_user@server.domain.com).
