    Hey guys,

    We un-assigned an account before backing up the email forwarders - is there a file which stores them that I can get out of the backups?

    Other posts say to look in /etc/valiases but my host doesn't have such a folder within my account...

    I've got ssh access if that helps

    Many thanks in advance

    Hello :)

    The "/etc/valiases" directory is only accessible with "root" access. Please contact your hosting provider to see if backups are available for your account, as full account backups or backups generated through the cPanel backup script will include the forwarders.

    Thank you.
