    Sendmail problem

    Sendmail problem


    hey i am using CentOS4.2, Sendmail 8.12 and Dovecot servers.

    I set up sendmail and it works fine. i created a user account and he is able to send and receive emails fine.

    I created another account, he is able to send mail properly. No mails are bouncing for this account. So i checked the logs and found that the mails directed to the second account are going to root users mailbox.

    Why?

    I checked in /etc/aliases. no aliases created for the second account. No problem found.

    I created another account and the same problem occurs...

    Am i missing anything??

    Any help appreciated.
    Thankx
    Arun

    You could be having a problem with a typo in the username coupled with your /etc/mail/virtusertable file having an entry like this:

    Code:
    @my-domain.org        root
    which makes all unidentified mail go to the root user's account.

    You could fix this with an entry like this which will send back an error to the sender.

    Code:
    @my-domain.org        error:nouser User unknown
