Can the account default user still receive e-mail?

    I created an account for the user "username" with domain "domain.com".

    Mail to the default user (FTP user) of the account, username@domain.com, is not delivered correctly. Looking at the Exim log delivery was attempted to username@serverhostname instead of username@domain.com.

    The mailbox seem active because I can log in via webmail. Its's simply the delivery that goes differently from what I am used to.

    In a way this is a good thing because the default user mailboxes tend to not be used by clients and attract a lot of SPAM. But not if the client does want to use that mailbox.

    Is this an intentional change with Exim 4, or is there something I should fix?

    Your advice is appreciated :)

    BUMP!

    Oop did I just do that ? :D

    Please confirm that your default account mailboxes still work as before. In other words, when you have an account for domain.com that is owned by username, the default address in /etc/valiases/domain.com is typically set to *: username. But lately e-mail to undelivered@domain.com is not going to the username mailbox anymore, but to username@serverhostname.com instead :confused:

    Your comments are appreciated :)
