    I changed the domain name on an account & now the old username is listed under forwards "* >> thisurl" & it wont delete. When I try to delete it it says "* no more forwards to thisurl." but it still shows up under forwards. How do I manually delete this forward?

    I just edit my /etc/valiases files.

    I tried pico /etc/valiases & it was empty.
    I also tried pico /etc/valiases/wildwebdomains.com but it did not have the one forward in the file.

    That's strange. Maybe your server setup stores the valiases elsewhere. I know mine are in the /etc/valiases/domain.com files and I always add and remove forwarders by editing those files.

    I don't know if it will work, but you could try creating a new account for the old domain name, then check for and remove any forwarders, then terminate the account.
