In WHM you can specify how your customers will contact you with support requests. These requests will come from the Submit a Support Request in the Advanced section of your customer's (resold account's) cPanel.
Configuring Custom Contacts

- Click the WHM icon.
- Click Configure Customer Contact, under the Support section.

Display Contact InformationHere you can edit the information that is displayed when a customer uses the Contact, Support and Help links in their cPanel account.
