    I read the posts here and applied the exim.conf fixes but it still isnt working

    I have set up email forwarding for domain.com to forward to meATmyisp.com

    the idea is to have any email sent to that domain forward to my normal email addy

    the output from
    http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsr...in=mydomain.com
    shows no errors

    but whenever I send an email to that domain it bounces with this error:

    <name@domain.com>
    Permanent Failure: 550-"The_recipient_cannot_be_verified.__Please_check_al l_recipients_of_this
    Delivery last attempted at Sun, 14 Aug 2005 18:36:38 -0000


    Reporting-MTA: dns; comcast.net
    Arrival-Date: 14 Aug 2005 18:36:36 +0000

    Can anyone point me to whats wrong? The DNS has propogated, the rDNS records are good...everything is fine according to dnsreport.com

    more info

    if I set up a pop3 accouint the emails get delivered correctly to that account, that account can also send email properly so the only thing that doesnt work is forwarding

    when I look in etc/valiases I see my domains but all the files there are 0 length (empty) shouldnt they contain the forwarding info...this is looking more and more like a cpanel mess up
    can anyone help?

    apparently this is a bug when i researched what should be in the valias files and updated them manually forwarding starting working.

    for those that need to know

    /etc/valiases contains an entry for each of your domains

    to do what I did

    edit the file corresponding to the domain you want to forward and add

    *:email@yourisp.com

    simple as that
