Try upgrading to something in the 5.4 series.  vdeldomain in 5.4 will
correctly delete just the alias, and won't touch the real domain behind
it.

Incorrect.  Very nasty bug:

I'm using vpopmail 5.4.10 and just did vdeldomain to delete an alias domain.
It deleted the original domain and left the alias domain untouched (but
useless).

Lost everything in that domain, I guess, including all users emails.
Fortunately there weren't many users on that domain, and possibly no mail
since most users are forwarded elsewhere.

Are you sure you were deleting the alias? I deleted an alias domain last week and it was fine. I just tried on a development server, and it was fine as well.

I think that Rick had been working on changed to vdeldomain where it would warn you if you were deleting a domain that still had aliases, but I'm not sure where that code is...
