pop accounts suddenly dissapeared from cpanel


May 12, 2004
A lot of domains suddenly dont have their pop mail boxes shown in cpanel , however the folder for every mail box pop still exist in /home/user/mail/domain.com/popuser

I also recognized that the file /home/user/etc/domain/shadow is empty , and has only the default address

this problem made all the clients not recieving emails , and the /var/log/exim_mainlog is full of messages with the meaning "no such user here" !!

what is going on , does any body have any idea

BS: we changed all the /etc/valiases/* to "*: :fail: no such user here " on purpose , but this have to do nothing with dissapearing the pop accounts , right ?
