Unhappy Unpredictable error :(


Hi , I would like add an address info@example.com
"useradd -s /bin/bash -d /home/info -m info"
I wrote this code, it can open for other email adresses but when I wanna open info@ , it cannot be open,
when I add an address to the server, to activate it, I send a message to the address then in the directory of the address that I created,Maildir is builded and we can use that email address.
but for info@... it cannot be occured, Maildir cannot be occured,
can it be info a reserved word for email addres,
do you have any idea that how I can fix this problem,
thank you

It's more than likely that info is set up as a predefined alias in /etc/aliases.

Open the /etc/aliases in a text editor. Find the line with "info" on it. Put a # at the beginning of the line. Save and close the file. Restart the mail system, or restart the server.
