    Hello ,

    Whenever I try to test the filter setup from the cPanel I am getting the following error on the cPanel "exim: failed to open /etc/vfilters/DOMAIN: No such file or directory"

    Following error is reported in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log file

    Please check if the file exists first:

    Code:
    ls -lah /etc/vfilters/domain.com
    If the file is missing, please create the file:

    Code:
    touch /etc/vfilters/domain.com
    chown user:mail /etc/vfilters/domain.com
    Please replace domain.com with the domain name and user with the cPanel username.

    If the file is not missing, check if the ownership is properly user:mail for the file.

    File is there and permission and ownership are also correct.

    ls -alh
    -rw-r--r-- 1 test123 mail 0 Nov 17 18:41 /etc/vfilters/test123.com

    At this point, please open a ticket as I cannot see anything that would prevent the file from being opened or detected. You can open a ticket using the link in my signature or using WHM > Support Center > Contact cPanel.
