    With RVSKIN, I just had a catastrophe deleting an email account @domain , without x in x@domain, just @domain. Looked odd, so I deleted it. Wrong. Very wrong. Do not delete this email account.

    This killed the whole mail system on that site. Literally, it removed the /home/y/mal dir and no email accounts, zero were left.

    Isn't this nice? Auch!

    This happened with RVSKIN, latest. I am trying it with X, on a non-production site later.

    Really ugly feature without warning it would kill the whole mail enchilada.

    ER

    PD
    Tried with X3 and X and issue did not come up. I happens with RVSKIN though. Be careful or you end up zapping the whole /home/x/mail folder for the site.

    You may wish to contact the makers of RVSkin about this issue. Their website is RVSkin.com

    If you are going to use any of the cPanel-supplied themes, I recommend using x3 (not x). x and x2 are no longer maintained and do not incorporate any of the new functionality found in cPanel 11.
