Email Tracing in cPanel
Email Trace functionality is important for troubleshooting email routing issues. With this tool, users can pinpoint problems with their email delivery by tracing delivery attempts and routes with the click of a button.
To search email delivery attempts with Email Trace:
1. Log into cPanel.
2. In the Mail section, click the Email Trace icon.
3. Enter a recipient email address in the search box.
4. Click Run Report.
The results will then appear in the form of the Delivery Report table See Below and the Email Server Trace diagram See Below.
The Delivery Report table
By default, the system sorts your query's results into the following columns:
|Event||An icon that indicates the message's delivery status:
|User||The cPanel user who owns the email account that sent the message.|
|Sender||The email address on your system that sent the message.|
|Sent Time||The date and time when the user sent the message.|
|Spam Score||A score that is based on the number of spam-related traits within the message.|
|Recipient||The email address to whom the user sent the message.|
|ID||The unique identifier of the outgoing email message.|
|Result||This column contains a short message about the delivery.|
|Actions||Click the icon to view and print information about the selected message. This information includes the message's sender, recipient, username, and more.|
