    Hi,
    Please contact to your hosting provider to check logs on the server as I can see that you have cPanel Reseller Access Level.

    If you have root access then let me know so that I can assist you here.

    Hello :)

    I am not sure about an exclusive log for mail forwarder creation. Instead you can check the last modification time of /etc/valiases/domaon.com file and search the corresponding entries in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log.

    Hello,

    There's no file that stores the date of the forward creation. However, if it was recent, you could try searching /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log to see if anyone created a forwarder for the account through cPanel. Here's an example of the commands you can use:

    Code:
    grep username /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log
    grep doaddfwd.html /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log
    This will output all references to the account username and the use of the forwarder option in cPanel. Thus, you will still need to browse through the output, but it might help you to narrow down the date.

    Thank you.
