Mail is being forwarded to another mail account despite the mail forwarding is disabled.


As a result of configuration issues that previously took place (probably #PPA-2813 or #PPA-3344), the setting of mail server were not synchronized with PA.

That led to the situation when mail forwarding was enabled in Postfix, but not registered in PA's database.


  1. Disable mail forwarding for the mail account in PA
  2. Remove unwanted forwarders from account configuration on Postfix node.

    The forwarding settings are stored in /var/qmail/mailnames/

    # cat /var/qmail/mailnames/
    | true
    | /usr/bin/deliverquota ./Maildir

    , where '' is the mail account the mail of '' is forwarded to.

    Remove the line:
