    Okay, scenerio-

    Any email sent to the primary account is rejected "No Such User Here"...

    (Primary account being the cpanel account name).

    My first thought was I had bastardized the exim.conf to the point of breaking something. To check, I restored the default cpanel exim.conf and attempted to send mail. Rejected just the same.

    In trying to narrow down the issue, I commented out the "verify = recipient" section of the recipient ACL so that the message would be accepted and processed. From the exim log after received:

    (names have been changed to protect the innocent)

    2005-11-12 00:21:56 1Eanps-0003g1-08 ** accountname@clientdomain.com R=virtual_aliases: No Such User Here​

    The email was bounced back to me at my gmail account with the following:

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    accountname@clientdomain.com
    No Such User Here​


    Any thoughts? This appears to be a global issue. Any account name cannot receive email, virtual accounts can no problem. (kick chirpy! :) )

    Did you checked the /etc/localdomains that it contains entry for that domain ?

    To receive mail, you have to create an account (with the same primary name) just like you would create your other email accounts.

    It's global --

    Any domain on the server, the primary account cannot receive email (as assigned in /etc/userdomains). Virtual email accounts work fine.

    Are all of your default accounts set to :fail: ?

    the server default is set to :fail:, which is fine, but created accounts were getting the error that the other user mentioned.

    looks like i might have resolved the issue by doing an exim --force upgrade. i've successfully been able to create an email acct under a domain and test send to it, worked fine. if any other accounts on the server still have issues, i'll report back.

    btw, I got the idea to force an upgrade, as a result of this post:
