Exim Error domain missing or malformed

Should exim in cPanel give an error similar to the following:

test@domain R=valias_domain_file defer (-17): error in redirect data: domain missing or malformed in “test@”

You are getting this error because fail is set up incorrectly in the default address field in cPanel.

To resolve the above-mentioned issue, please follow the below-given steps:

1) Login to your cPanel interface.

2) Navigate to the ‘Email’ section.

Enabling this option will send an error message to the sender. Enter an error message in the Failure Message text box and that message will be sent to the sender address.

5) Finally, click on the ‘Change’ button at the bottom of the page to save the changes.
