    Hello,

    I am facing below error when trying to delete mail forwarder.
    I have forwarded info@domain -> info@gmail.com
    But the mail account info@domain is already deleted.
    Even tried by recreating info@domain mail account and then delete forwarder but still same error.
    Also did /script/fixvaliases
    Permissions of /etc/valiases/domain are user:mail

    Please update is any solution asap.

    Thank you.

    Edit the valiases file

    Try editing /etc/valiases/gmail.com directly. You will need to do this from the shell as root, using an editor such as vi or nano. You can remove the forwarder line and then save the file.

    If this is the only forwarder in /etc/valiases/gmail.com, you can simply move the file to a different location, such as /root, instead of editing it.

    If you can run scripts, I assume you have root access so you can remove the file directly.
    Just a thought, why would cPanel write forwarder info@domain.com -> info@gmail.com in /etc/valiases/gmail.com instead of file /etc/valiases/domain.com.

    I was actually wondering the same thing, and if removing the gmail.com file does not resolve the issue, I would be interested in looking at the server directly if the customer wants to submit a ticket.
