    resolved the last problem too just forward the email from whm to the default account for example and here you go, last problem will be that no email are being delivered, can send to anybody but cannot see the reply i made no bounceback message as well if anybody got an idea ?

    Using the default configuration, Exim runs as the local user when doing a local delivery, and it uses a lock file to prevent any other process from updating the mailbox while it is writing to it. Check the ownership on this user's mail box dan@animationweek.com. The correct settings are user.mail.

    Remove the lock files (inbox.lock*) from the mail directory (/home/animatio/mail/animationweek.com/dan/) . After that restart the mail services and the issue will get resolved.
