Ignoring local accounts routing all to default address

    After the 11.28 update on account on my server stopped working.

    The problem is that it seems to ignore any defined mail accounts. All mail gets routed to the default address. The email trace util says something like: -> virtual_aliases via /etc/valiases/ -> (ie the main box).

    The /etc/valiases/ contains only one line:

    *: myaccount

    It's also impossible to login to any of the mail boxes for the domain. Mail log shows:

    Nov 11 11:12:13 servername pop3d: LOGIN FAILED,, ip=[::ffff:x.x.x.x]

    I can login and fetch mail from the main account - that one works ok, but now gets everyones mail..

    It's just one domain out of many that seems broken.

    I'm out of ideas - anyone with input on this?

    Edit: I found the problem. In the file /var/cpanel/users/mydomain, there was a wrong USER listed, the result of another domain migration a long time ago I guess. Seems the latest version of Cpanel / system has triggered this to be important. After editing the file, removing duplicate entries and running /scripts/updateuserdomains it now works as expected again.
