Unhappy Mail Forwarding stopped working?

Hi all,

Got a very weird one. My domain, spikedsoftware.co.uk is setup to forward all mail to an email address, so the equivalent email at spikedsoftware.com.

For example, fred@spikedsoftware.co.uk goes to fred@spikedsoftware.com.

This has been working fine, for ages until the other day, magically, it's stopped working. Now all email gets delivered to fred@spikedsoftware.co.uk into a mailbox i haven't actually configured. The folders get created under /var/vmail and everything appears to be setup as a mailbox, except in the database. There is no mailbox setup for fred, only a forward to spikedsoftware.com.

Can anyone help please? Am not sure what details you require, if you could let me know and i'll post them here.

Many thanks,

Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?

Did you somehow update or modify your system recently?

No errors really, i'll get a proper log on here later.

It's really strange how it's working, i've just set the /new/ folder under a mail box as a symlink to the correct inbox. Not ideal, but works for now.
