    I have searched the forum for an answer to this problem.

    I have a VPS server with WHM and have just setup an additional account/domain.
    Now, there's in a problem with bounce emails that doesn't get past the mail queue :

    == root@server.directnetmarketing.com <system@server.directnetmarketing.com> R=central_user_filter defer (-1): bad owner for /etc/vfilters/123system.com

    (User name for the new domain is "system" )

    I would appreciate any input on how to edit etc/vfilters/domain.com


    Thanks,

    Oddvin Nesheim

    The /etc/vfilters/<domainname.com> must have ownership of the user and the group should be mail.

    So to fix this issue, you should run the following command:

    chown system.mail /etc/vfilters/123system.com

    This should fix your issue.

    not resolved

    Thank you for your input.

    However, I still have the same issue.

    I may add that these bounce emails are originally sent from my autorespoder script, probably as 'nobody'. (I'm not that into this stuff)

    Also I don't see any changes in the vfilters/123system.com file.

    Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

    Regards,
