    Sorry if the problem is trivial but I can't find answer. I have installed ISPConfig and have e.g. site. When I go to User & Email -> New I have field Email Address [email protected]. BUT after I save this account the ISPConfig creates email address [email protected] (with www at the beginning) and of course rejects emails for [email protected]. Emails sent for [email protected] are delivered correctly.

    What am I doing wrong? I need to have emails directly in

    (And "garfabian" got it too as we can see...)

    You found an error? Great! But you did not describe it. :(

    You must create on the Co-Domains tab (without host).

    Well, but i've got!

    I install sities as admin (no limits on webs, domains etc).
    First few was ok, butonce things went wrong and now at every next one I have that problem.
    (I reinstalled yesterday ISPConfig after few "trial-days" exactly because that problem was born - and now I have it again :( )

    Now in form "ISP user" on tab "User & Email" I can see (for ex.):
    Email Address: [_______]
    but in line below
    Username: subvenio.pl_[_______]
    without "www"!
    (As you can see i use [DOMAIN] string in username prefix.)
    And (checked twice) on "Co-Domain" tab is present "" without www. :(

    Have you got any idea?

    BTW: Thanks for fast answer (and for ISPConfig too - very much :) ).

    To change your username prefix to include also the host (www), you can use the placeholder [HOSTDOMAIN] instead of [DOMAIN].

    But you can also leave it as it is now. The email addresses where created for [email protected] and for [email protected] if there is a co-domain with empty host field.

    You can check /etc/postfix/virtusertable to see if your email addresses have been created correctly.

    No. Username prefix is ok for me.
    Problem is with host apearring in created e-mail address.

    When I leave empty host field it looks like this:

    Email Address: [_______]
    with "@.domain".

    I will check /etc/postfix/virtusertable on the evening today and than I'll give you a sign.
    Now I've got only acces via port 81 to that server, so I done simple test:
    1. I made user account (without host) subvenio.pl_test with address [email protected] (with that dot, which ISPConfig is inserting) and then
    2. I send mail to [email protected] (without dot) and
    3. I login via webmail using again [email protected] and could see that e-mail which I send.

    So I see, I can live with that problem - even if it is confusing to site-admins :(
    I will try to investigate it deeper and I will write when I will find something...

    Strange is that: i've got webs (domains) without this problem on the same server! :confused:

    Thanks for your time.
