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 [email protected], so setting the default address to [email protected] would be the same as if you set it to username in previous versions of cPanel.
