    mail problem major

    I have a domain on the server that has at least 20 "default address" setup.

    Default Address (in mail area) says:

    Default Address Maintenance
    All unrouted mail will be sent to:

    There is only the main account user1@the setup, but about 20 default addresses in the "default address" area. Client says that any email such as should be forwarded to the main account (because it is setup in the default address area). So, if someone sends an email to (even though that whatever1 email does not exist) it should forward to the default address (what he considers default address woks like a "catch all"). Is this true? He says it worked all along until last night (been a customer for a few months).

    Some examples of the default address (what he says works as catch all accounts) are: (not on server) should forward to (not on server) should forward to

    Now, keep in mind the only account created is

    What I did:
    /scripts/exim4 -latest

    Cpanel 9.9.9R-14.
    Fedora Core 2

    Please help

    Someone please help...

    /etc/valiases/ shows... |/home/user1/ |/home/user1/ |/home/user1/ |/home/user1/ |/home/user1/ |/home/user1/
    *: user1

    Note: email# = email account

    /var/log/exim_mainlog shows at least 30 completed (did not notice any incompletes). I checked the time I was speaking to him and the ones regarding that were not working do show as completed.

    Also, he checked hi spam folder, nothing there (I checked also in webmail as he did webmail also).

    I was able to duplicate this error myself, on the same server of course.
    I set a default address to send to a legitimate account and then did a test email send to (account does not exist). Looks like there is a problem in cpanel itself.
