    we updated to WHM 8.5.1 Cpanel 8.5.3-S3 RedHat 7.3 - WHM Xskin v 1.6, seems the first problem was that several accounts became unroutable..

    we even gzipped the account, uninstaled it and reinstaled it, no good

    then we tried scritps/exim4

    and now no passwords work and even if you change them in cp, they still do not work

    tried rebooting

    on a production server, we are in a fix..



    we figured out part of the problem:

    the DEFUALT mail name in /etc/valiases cannot be altered from the main user name for the account.

    if the main user is "name" and you do NOT desire to have a catchall and place any of the default items like " /dev/null " or " :fail:, or even DELETE the entries, it make the address unroutable...

    the only thing that works is placing : mainuser
    in "Set Default Address" in cp...

    which produces *: mainuser in valiases

    we do not desire to receive e mail to "anyone", so any help would be appreciated..
