Thank you for your reply, Trey Nolen.
I was not so lucky with the backup part :)
I confirm, the first file deleted was vpasswd, so the users cannot authenticate.
Maybe someone could provide more help about this.

I did something similar a while back. I had one main domain
and another one that was aliased to it. I ran vdeldomain on the alias and
noticed that the command was taking a few seconds. I stopped the command,
but it had trashed a bunch of accounts. I can tell you that it
definitely did NOT delete things in alphabetical order. It seemed to
delete them in the order they were created. It started with accounts in the top
level directory and then proceeded into the folders below (0, 1, etc.).
One of the first casualties was the vpasswd file so noone could
authenticate. You may be using a different authentication method, so this
may not be the case with you. Fortunately, I had a good, recent
backup that saved me...I hope you do too.

I've got a big problem, please help. I've
runned vdeldomain on a mailserver (unfortunate act), but I've canceled
the command fast.
The luck is that only the first user that
started with "A" had no emails. But, in the last time period,
another user claimed he has a few mails in minus
My question is:
HOW vdeldomain acts? How it performs this mail removal? Is it in a
alphabetical order? In a time order? Or how?
Thank you very much
and please provide some help because i'm
