    9 of my sites have been getting this msg, supposedly, for the past 5 days. They are not even getting this msg. I am the only one getting it. And then i get bounced msgs from the sites that are supposed to be getting the msg.

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    admin@tambayanonline.net
    forced failure:

    ------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------

    id 19Axzk-0004cN-00
    for admin@tambayanonline.net; Wed, 30 Apr 2003 13:16:00 -0700
    To: admin@tambayanonline.net
    From: bandwidth@tambayanonline.net
    Subject: The domain tambayanonline.net (tambayan) is about to exceed bandwidth limit

    The domain tambayanonline.net (tambayan) has reached 80% of its bandwidth limit.
    Please contact the system admin as soon as possible.

    THIS SUCKS!

    Easy solutions, since it looks like you have your default address for :Fail: you should create a forward for adim, to go to your main mail box.

    Maybe so, this may not have an admin@ setup however the other 8 sites are not being notified.

    and have you done a /usr/sbin/exim -d9 -bt address@domain.tld or /usr/sbin/exim -d9 -bh ip.address (both as root)

    Thanks, yes when i ran the above command i got

    admin@tambayanonline.net is undeliverable:

    But the user has webmaster@tambayanonline.net in his contact so why is Cpanel trying to interrogate admin@? If sites have :FAIL: setup then all these will bounce. Isnt Cpanel supposed to be sending email to the contact information address. Whats this admin stuff? That means every reseller we have with a FAIL in their default will never receive email.

    no idea why cpanel is trying admin@ atm having :fail: will always generate a bounce message when mail is sent to a address this can used if say a certain address is being spammed to high heaven then you can put in :fail: address getting loads of spam then exim will always bounce any message to that address with the aforementioned message
