    I'm getting the follow error when trying to set the default email for an account via cpanel.

    All unrouted mail for ohiosportsman.com is now going to: webmaster@domainname.com
    Fatal! Write Failure: /etc/valiases/domainname.com. Ignore any messages of success this can only result in failure!

    What does this mean and how do I fix it?

    It is there but weird thing is that it lists out as:

    -rw -r--r-- 1msports msports date/time ohiosportsman.com

    The weird thing about this listing is that this domain name should appear under the osports account. This is probably the root of the problem but I have no idea how to fix it.

    How do you do that? Bear with me I'm a Unix and WHM newbie. My site had always been on a shared managed server before now.
