Department Not Found

Your customers can request support by emailing your support department. However, if your support email address is in the CC or BCC field, it will generate a “Department Not Found” error. The support email address must be in the TO field for any incoming email.

WHMCS requires that you create at least one support department. The “General Enquiries” department exists by default. And your default admin user will be assigned to it. If there are no support departments or admin users assigned, you will generate this error.
