    I got a wierd one.
    Whenever :blackhole: or :fail: is set under the "Default Address" sections ALL e-mail for ALL accounts gets ether blackholes or failed. I can send it to a acount that is just "forwarded" to a main one and it dies or I can send it to a main one and it just dies.
    cPanel Build: 8.8.0-EDGE, Build 72

    Anyone got any idea's? This is the 1st time I've seen it happen, since I also have the same setup on another account with same cPanel build and have no problems.

    What happens if you remove the blackhole. Will the email work again or does it still fail?

    Yes removing the : fail will allow mail to be delieverd normally. It did for me . . . however local mail will be delivered even if the server is set to reject user unkn mail.

    Confirming this on FreeBSD 4.9 - R123

    Putting to :blackhole: all unrt mail disables main account (domain@domain.com) and emails start to bounce back with no such mailbox....

    Did you check /etc/valiases/yourproblemdomain.com, and compared this to a functional valiases file using blackhole/fail?
