Hello,

I'm trying to add a forwarder for an email on my domain (rmarmorstein.com) and I'm getting the following error:

Code:
Failed to obtain lock on aliases file for yalo.io! at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Email/Aliases.pm line 62.
How can I fix this? I find it odd that It cannot find the aliases file for a different domain?

Thanks in Advance!

Hello :)

Case number 158597 addresses an issue where attempting to create a forwarder from one account's email address on a server, to another account's email address on the same server, it will produce an error referencing a failure to obtain a valias lock. This is resolved as of cPanel version 11.48.0.7 (currently only pushed to the "Edge" tier):

Fixed case 158597: Don't read /etc/valiases/ files when not owned by user during email fowarding setup.

It's expected to make it's way to additional build tiers tomorrow (CST).

Thank you.
