    We have a client using Bigmaibox.com for email.
    the problem is in order for the form results to be delivered to the correct email address the domain needs to be commented out of /etc/localdomains and for some reason Cpanel will add another entry for the domain making the form results be delivered to the local inbox.
    Is there a way to prevent this?

    If you want to lock /etc/localdomains use #chattr +i /etc/localdomains

    Will that keep new domains from being wriiten to the file afterwards? If so, will that create any problems?

    I guess that way would be lose lose since you would have to manually change the file. N'mind that one.

    Yea it is actually--
    Seems that somebody mentioned this mechanism before, is there a flag somewhere or cpanel user profile modification that you can put in to prevent a local domain from being added back into /etc/localdomains?


    This information would be good to know- if this is posted elsewhere please let myself as well as the others know about it.

    Thanks!

    ;)

    I summited a patch for this some time ago. Nick already has it in bugzilla.

    See http://web.cpanel.net/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=228

    I submitted a patch that creates a /etc/remotemx file which is a list of domains to exclude from /etc/localdomains

    Just to clearify: Nick has not patched this into cpanel yet.
