(Home >> Server Contacts >> Contact Manager)
The Contact Manager interface allows you to specify when your server will send notifications for each communication method, and the priority of each type of alert.
- Your server uses the system contact information for notifications, which the system administrator configured when they initially installed cPanel & WHM.
- To modify the system contact information, click Change Alert Destinations, or navigate to the Basic cPanel & WHM Setup interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup).
Set your alert preferences
To set your alert preferences, perform the following steps:
Use the Alert Contact Priority Assignment section to specify the lowest alert priority that you wish to receive for each notification method. To receive no notifications via a notification method, select Disabled.
For example, if you wish to receive email alerts about events that have a High priority, select the High option next to Email.
Use the Alert Priority Assignment section to assign a priority level to an event. To disable notifications for an event type, select the Disabled option.
- Click Save.
