    ** Background **

    1. When my service provider set up the VPS, they wrongly set the hostname as one of the domains I want to host, let say mydomain.com. I know this would be a problem. So I changed it to host.mydomain.com, in "Basic WHM/cPanel Setup" under "Server Configuration" in WHM, and "Hostname" in "Networking Setup" in WHM.

    2. In "Change System Mail Preference" under "Server Contacts" in WHM, I specified a Gmail address for root's mail, nobody's mail and cpanel's mail.

    3. I have a PHPBB, which sends emails from user nobody, to the users who register accounts.

    4. One of the new forum users' email address is invalid. The email was bounced back to nobody@host.mydomain.com



    ** Problem **

    The bounced-back email stays in the mail queue. When I click "Deliver now", WHM gave me this error:

    --------------------------------
    Message 1InXQR-0000T6-I8 is no longer frozen
    delivering 1InXQR-0000T6-I8
    LOG: MAIN
    ** nobody@host.mydomain.com R=virtual_aliases: No Such User Here
    LOG: MAIN
    Frozen (delivery error message)
    --------------------------------

    How can I fix it so that the email will bounce back to my Gmail address?

    If I didn't provide enough info, please ask. Thanks in advance!

    Sorry, don't worry. It fixed by itself on the next day. I thought the change would be real-time, wouldn't it??
