    Sure. Just create subdomain.domain.tld under Co-Domains.
    For example, if your website has the FQDNs,,, and you have a user testuser, then this user automatically has the email addresses [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected].
    Have a look at /etc/postfix/virtusertable, and you'll understand.

    Yes, if subdomain.domain.tld and anothersubdomain.domain.tld belong to the same website.

    But you can create a website for subdomain.domain.tld and another website for anothersubdomain.domain.tld and have an info@.. account for each of the websites.

    Ok i tested this case :

    One site with www.domain.tld

    One site subdomain.domain.tld

    Another on anothersubdomain.domain.tld

    I created a "test" user for each site.

    When i send an email on [email protected], the user [email protected] (created on the www site) receives the message too. On the other hand [email protected] doesn't receive the message, and that is right :)

    it means that a user created for the site domain.tld must be different of a user created for the site subdomain.domain.tld

    What I made so that that works :

    i destroyed domain alias created by default on my subdomain.domain.tld :

    195.... ... ... ... domain.tld

    Now when i send message to [email protected], the user [email protected] doesn't receive this message.

    That is right ?

    Yes, thats right. If you create more then one web for a domain with different hosts, you have to delete co-domain (with empty host) on all additional websites.
