    I am running cPanel 11.4.19-RELEASE_14379.

    I notice that when you change the default address in the control panel and select Discard with error to sender (at SMTP time) with the default failure message, the corresponding line in the valiases file for that domain is:

    *: ":fail: No such person at this address"

    With the quotation marks. Are the quotation marks necessary?

    This results in the error message returning to the sender being:

    550 No such person at this address"

    I'm just curious as to whether the quotation marks should be there or if this was an oversight somewhere? I have never used quotation marks in this syntax with previous cPanel versions.

    Wondering if anyone else has noticed this.

    Looks like an oversight, there should not be any quotation marks.

    Thats what I thought. Were you also able to duplicate this? This isn't something that is just affecting my test servers is it?

    How would one go about bringing this to cPanel's attention? I know the forums aren't a place for support from cPanel, but I wasn't sure if Bugzilla was the right place to submit this, since it seems like such a simple oversight. If you have any contacts with the cPanel developers concerning minor bugs like this, you can go a head and turn this in to them.

    Bugzilla is the right place to ensure it gets looked at, from a major error to a spelling mistake ;)
