    Hello,

    When a new account is created it sometimes fails to create the default email account ( CPANEL USERNAME@DOMAINNAME.COM ) This is becoming a problem, it seems that if this email address isnt created then emails in general dont work,

    any one have any thoughts on this?

    I have always assumed that the default address is the account address, i.e. account@domain.com unless you set up a specific one.

    check "tweak settings" and make sure you haven't set the default address to "fail".

    Or better still - set it to fail - it lets the spammers in too easily !!

    Rather create a new email address and use that in each domain.
