Configuring the automatic sending of mails

We will see in this tutorial how to set automatic sending of email received by OVH following a reinstallation, reboot the hardware and the Switching to Received, or WinRescue vKVM.

Redirecting emails to the module

  • You have to first create an email address on your host server (the one on which one is your WHMCS install), example:
User: OVH-user
Email address:
  • It must then redirect all emails received by the address to the module:
  • Connect with SSH or SFTP to your server and open the file "/etc/aliases" with your favorite editor (nano, vim etc. ..)
  • Add the following line:
ovh-user: "| php-q /YOURWHMCSFOLDER/modules/addons/ovh/pipe.php"

You can add an emergency address by separating with a comma like this:

ovh-user: "| php-q /YOURWHMCSFOLDER/modules/addons/ovh/pipe.php",
  • Save changes.
  • Run the command:/usr/bin/newaliases

Here now all emails sent to will be redirected to the module.
