Hello,

A virtual email account is one that's created as an email address in cPanel. A non-virtual email account is typically a system account (e.g. the cPanel account username). You'd typically see the non-virtual delivery in cases where the "Default Address" option for the domain name in cPanel is configured to send unrouted email to the account username.

In the following example, "[email protected]" exists as an email account, "[email protected]" does not exist as an email account, and the "Default Address" for cptest01.tld in cPanel is configured as "Forward to your system account":

Code:
# exim -bt [email protected]
[email protected]
  router = virtual_user, transport = dovecot_virtual_delivery_no_batch
Code:
# exim -bt [email protected]
[email protected]
    <-- [email protected]
  router = localuser, transport = dovecot_delivery_no_batch
Thank you.

Hello,

Yes, it's normal to see those entries. It's differentiating between virtual and non-virtual email accounts.

Thank you.
