    Hi I updated ISPConfig and all works well. There is one problem though. A web that did cause problems before still cases problems.

    The most recent one is that I can't receive emails on any adress of that web anymore.

    I receive an error message by mail:

    What does this mean?

    Thanks for your advice.

    I could fix it.

    Deleted it and made a new web with new email adresses.

    I take it back.
    It worked for one email. Now I get the same error report again!
    Very odd.

    Any ideas?

    ad to virtual domain config file and restart your proftpd

    I'm not sure what the exact name of this file is, but you will find it in the same directory where the postfix conf file is.

    This has nothing to do with proftpd. Add to /etc/postfix/local-host-names (at the bottom) and restart Postfix. That's all. :)

    I added the domain with www. and without www.

    It works now if I send the email to the @www.domain.tld address. It doesn't work with the @domain.tld address.

    And emails to some email adresses with @domain.tld get written into /var/spool/root

    If you mean if there is a website under the Co-Domain tab, no there isn't
    Yes, there is a entry with an empty host. I used it to forward the domain to another domain.

    Settings are now like this:

    Hostname "www"
    Domain "domain.tld"

    Hostname "www"
    Domain "domain.tld"

    Is there something else that should be done?

    When using thunderbird I get the following error:

    Where do I find this recipient table?

    Empty the filed Hostname in the co-domain, otherwise you wont get any emails for [email protected]

    This problem is solved when you empty the hostname in the co-domain as i described in the other post.

    Yes, that solved the problem!

    But for what is that hostname field good?

    It lets you add other Co-Domains, like for example,,, etc.
