Did you recently do anything to your /etc/ directory, like chown everything to root? I've seen some people do this thinking they're doing something right when they're really not. run this: ls -lah /etc/vmail | grep -i soccer and send back output.

Send a test mail to this account soccergaming.com and check the logs by issuing the command tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog |exigrep soccergaming.com

Thanks. We figured it out. It's working now.

would of be nice to let the community know how you got that resolved ... I could use some info, since I have one account on a box having that problem.
