    Hi


    The default mailbox of a domain in my box has a problem. The emails sent from this mail address, and the emails sent to this email get to the mailbox file, but they are not displayed neither on outlook or the webmail. (outlook settings are correct)

    I checked the /etc/valiases/domain.com file and founf the last line :

    *: username@domain

    I corrected it using other similar files as cue to

    *: username


    it worked correctly for some time ..

    Now the mail agent (outlook/webmail) doesn't fetch the emails and acting as if they are not there. And if I want to send an email from the outlook I get the 550 error..


    thank you

    I realize this is an old post but I am having this very issue right now, I see the message in the inbox but it will not download via outlook express. I've searched and read about the deltree method but this is the default account so there is no way to recreate it. Any help is welcomed.

    RESOLVED

    I am having the same problem and I tried all the suggestions in this forum and the one on webhostingtalk.

    I am still getting an error in outlook express when I try to download email from the server (although I can see email in webmail)


    EDIT: PROBLEM RESOLVED.

    I just went to the old "if it doesn't work...reboot" fix :)
