cPanel/WHM Frozen Emails root@

In WHM I had emails to nobody and cpanel under “Edit System Mail Preferences” setup to go to root but nothing specified for root.

The setup basically became confused and I was stuck with thousands of frozen emails to root@hostname emails in Exim hogging the email queue.

You can quickly and easily find and remove all frozen emails in the Exim queue with ease. See the command and then the link below.

exim -bp | grep -c frozen

How To Fix cPanel FTP Connection Issue

I was trying to FTP into a new server I had just setup and couldn’t. I received this error message:

What is happiness exactly?

With that being the case, I don’t see how we can all experience happiness all of the time since there are various factors and emotions influencing our lives every single day. It is practically impossible to just be happy all the time. At least I don’t think so.

cPanel/WHM: Change mail server IP address

I love emails, it fascinates me! I am still frequently surprised and intrigued by the various algorithms and procedures that mail servers follow to look up, identify, read and process emails. Working with emails and making sure that headers, identification, content, etc. are all appropriate can get tricky. At least we can reduce the stress caused by blacklisted IP addresses!

Let’s get started!
