    hi all,

    i'm just a user of couple shared hostings, and i already have this problems couple of time. my technical support is good, but NOT fast enough, so i think i will do by myself, if possible.

    today i found that my email default address settings setted to :fail:
    how can i change that to default user name manually ? what file should i alter to modify this settings ?

    because if u use cpanel web form it wont allow me, and requesting fully qualified email address.

    regards,

    In Cpanel:
    Mail -> Default Address -> Set Default Address -> Now choose the domain that you're setting the default address for (probably one one: your domain) and enter the email address that you'd like all mail forwarded to.

    as i said, if i use cpanel web form it need complete mail address, and this not what i'm asking about. please read what i'm asking in my first post.

    i need to revert the settings, so it back to default settings. i dont want to forward my mail to any email email address.

    Can you perhaps elaborate on why a fully qualified mail address would not work for your situation?

    1. somehow my default address was changed.
    2. i dont want to forward anywhere
    3. AFAIK, default settings will content forward to "username", no @, no nothing, just username
    4. i want to revert settings like before (just username), but i can NOT. cause cpanel web form will always need fully qualified email address.

    so, how can i revert settings without using cpanel web form ?

    Note that username was merely an alias for username@domain, so setting the default address to username@domain would be the same as if you set it to username in previous versions of cPanel.
