Recently I noticed when setting up a :fail: in a client's cPanel domain configuration that it no longer says to put ":fail: No Such User Here" but says to put ":fail: no such address here" in the default address field.

So many of my old domains and parked domains have the No Such User Here notation, some have the no such address here notation. Which is correct or do they both work?

Thanks!

It is about the same. Show the message "no such address here" / "no such user here"

I just want to make sure they're both doing the same thing. If it doesn't matter which I use, cool, I just want to make sure things are :fail:ing like they should :)

Go on, have a guess
They are the same. The important bit is the :fail: the text after it can be anything you want and will appear in the rejected email bounce the sender receives from their mail server.
