Contact Manager

The Contact Manager allows you to specify which types of alerts you want to receive. It also allows you to specify how the system delivers them. We recommend that you assign a priority to each contact method.

These settings control which notifications the system sends to the server administrator. These settings use the contact methods that you select in the “Communication Type” tab. Each cPanel user can manage their own notification settings in cPanel’s “Contact Information” interface.

For more information on each of these notifications, go to https://go.cpanel.net/contactmanager.
To adjust the destination for each contact method, go to Basic cPanel & WHM Setup.
