Cannot reuse previously deleted email address
RE: Cannot reuse previously deleted email address

"A mailbox, alias, forwarder or distribution list already exists with that name."

Bug or "Feature," it is what it is.


Sorry about that.

Log into phpMyAdmin and navigate to sentora_core>x_mailboxes and see if the email is there. It may not have been marked as deleted and may still be active but not attached to an account. It should be OK to delete it. (Make a backup first just in case!) You may also need to check x_aliases, x_forwarders and x_distlists.

Also check sentora_postfix>mailbox and sentora_postfix>alias and see if the entry is there too. It may have not been deleted for some reason. It should be ok to delete them also. (Make a backup first just in case!)
