Sorry the account already exists! : unable to create email account

The error occurred while creating test@domain email account through cpanel--
Check /home/username/etc/domain.com
There will be a file called passwd.. 'vi' that file and remove the line
test:x:32545:32546::/home/username/mail/domain/test:/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell
which will fix the issue..

Cheers!!
