    Hello,
    I have a problem with email forwarder.
    Forwarder is working fine with me, but when i tried to delete it,
    it said that forwarder is deleted succesfully but it still stand in the list.
    There is no Address, there is no Forward to.
    I would not pay attention to it but it still forwards my emails, and i want to clear this.
    See image below.
    Please tell me how to solve this problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have server access, please check the file /etc/valiases/domainname. The forwarder is set in that file. If you don't have server access, ask your host to check.

    I have server access, and i found "etc" but there is no "valiases".It looks like this:
    /etc/domainname - There are some files in domainname, what should i do with them?
    Thanks for helping me.

    Could you please paste the files under /etc/domainname? The actual directory is under /etc/valiases/

    I'm not shure i understand.
    You want me to copy those files to /etc/valiases/domainname ?
    Or you want to know wich files exist in /etc/domainname ?
    Here is the list of files:
    webmaster [empty dir]
    passwd [text file]
    passwd,v [text file]
    quota [text file]
    quota,v [text file]
    shadow [text file]
    shadow,v [text file]


    And as i said there is no valiases dir anywhere.

    When Shekar asked if you have server access he was referring to root access to the server. The forwarders are stored in /etc/valiases on the server. You have listed the files and folders inside of your home directory. If you do not have root access you will need to contact the support department you purchased hosting from and ask them to check. It could be a permissions problem and only someone with root access can delete it.
