    Hi,

    I've used the modify account function to change a domain name on an account. Everything seems to be working OK, except email. in cPanel, there are no mailboxes showing up, but I see the mail files are still located in the domain.com folder on the file system.

    I cannot send new email to these accounts, either.

    Any ideas on what may not have updated properly in the Modify function?

    Turns out the /home/account/etc/domain.com directory didn't get renamed properly, so it could not find the email accounts. Manually edited and all is well!
