    Some people reply my emails, but the mails not receive in Really the emails are sent to localuser@whmhostname where localuser its de unix user assigned to the cpanel account and whmhostname its de hostname of the machine.

    This emails are received in the default cpanel mail account but as whmhostname and are different y can't assign a fordward rule in cpanel.

    I use a "solution" adding username to /etc/aliases (not /etc/valiases/ but Its not correct this solution when the machine have thousands cpanel's accounts and customers can't customize /etc/aliases.


    First: In reply to mails somepeople use localuser@hostname instead of (emails program clients find this email and use it for autcomplete send email)

    Second: How to fordward localuser@hostname to a custom email.

    Thanks for your attention.
