    Hi,

    I see in our monitoring Mail Queue Manager, the email use information like this

    Recipient(s)
    user1@domain.com
    user2@domain.co.id
    user3@domain.id
    user@domain.co.id/dovecot_virtual_delivery

    But some email use information like : dovecot_virtual_delivery
    user@domain.co.id/dovecot_virtual_delivery

    What is the meaning of dovecot_virtual_delivery , is this normal or some thing miss with our configuration cPanel

    Thanks

    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, "test1@cptest01.tld" exists as an email account, "does-not-exist@cptest01.tld" 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 test1@cptest01.tld
    test1@cptest01.tld
      router = virtual_user, transport = dovecot_virtual_delivery_no_batch
    Code:
    # exim -bt does-not-exist@cptest01.tld
    cptest01@hostname
        <-- does-not-exist@cptest01.tld
      router = localuser, transport = dovecot_delivery_no_batch
    Thank you.

    So this is just a naming for identity, this is normal

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.
