    I seem to have a problem with the following scenario:

    I have two different domains, and I would like to have a subdomain called webmail for each of them, like this:



    With the first domain that worked out perfectly, but with the second one I run into problems. I can create the site alright, but when i try to access it in the browser, I get a 'Server not found' error. It is however resolved properly by the DNS. If I rename the site to e.g. mail, so that it looks like


    everything works as it is supposed to.

    I run ISPConfig 2.12 on a Debian 3.1 box.

    Any advice?

    Best Regards

    When you create webmail.domain1.tld in ISPConfig, you should go to the Co-Domains tab afterwards and remove the Co-Domain domain1.tld (with no host!) afterwards. This Co-domain is created by ISPConfig automatically.

    I am not sure why, but that did it. Thanks for the advice.

    Because web1 is domain1.tld, and in web2 (webmail.domain1.tld) you have domain1.tld as Co-Domain which means these two conflict.
