I am unable to delete or edit the catchall alias of a VDS.


The problem may occour due to domain name change such as from to on this VDS.


The catchall may still be applied to  in the file /etc/mail/virtusertable inside the VDS.

Please manualy delete this catchall in virtusertable,
(delete the record:  " Alias"). 
NOTE: dont forget to run:

[VDS][/etc/mail]$ makemap hash /etc/mail/virtusertable
after the virtusertable change.

you should be able to add a catchall and then delete it from the control-panel after this.


Be sure to backup files prior to any changes.
