    the configurations files for exim located at /etc and /etc/valiases and /home folder has a wrong group, it must be username:mail but instead it is username:game this is causing me several problems because emails are not been sended.
    All emails, incoming and outgoing has been rejected, exim_mainlog returns this error:
    temporarily rejected RCPT <[email protected]>: failed to open /etc/valiases/ for linear search: Permission denied (euid=47 egid=8)
    I already executed the script /scripts/mailperm and only fixes the permissions on /home directory
    I did change the files' group on /etc with this line:
    find . -group games -exec chown root:mail {} \;
    and change manually the group for valiases to mail but in a question of time the group has been changed again to games.
    I already forced the cpanel update with /scripts/upcp --force and still the same, please help!

    Hello @netronicus,

    You'll need to investigate to determine why the group ownership of your files and directories are changing to "games". This is not a normal occurrence and suggests there's something amiss on your system. We provide a list of companies offering system administration services if you need someone to login to your system to determine what's happening:

    Thank you.
