Sometimes, emails being sent out from a cPanel email account and/or your website are not being delivered. You can find out why, by checking Track Delivery inside cPanel. Here’s how:
- Login to cPanel
- Under Email click on Track Delivery
Common Delivery Failure Reasons
No Such User
This means that the email address that you tried to deliver emails to doesn’t exist. If you’re certain it does exist, you may find that the email routing setting in cPanel are incorrect.
Junk Mail Error
This simply means that the email server thinks the email is spam. Try checking the email subject, content and any links included in the email. And try again.

There are a few common reasons for this. The first is that the sender is using no authentication in their email software, and the second most common reason is that the email routing settings are incorrect in cPanel.
