    Hello, thanks for the great product!!

    I've installed ISPConfig 2.2.7 under SuSE 10.1 following Falko's "Perfect Setup", and everything is running great.

    I've noticed, however, that if I log into the console as root and check mail, the root account is receiving spam. I also discovered that the second account I created during the setup (admin) is also receiving spam, though not nearly as much. Why are these accounts receiving mail at all, and how do I keep it from happening?

    Postfix accepts email for local users, this is fine and nescessary for ISPConfig. If you dont want to receive emails for e.g. root, you can create a alias in the postfix aliases file and forward the emails to one of your other users. Dont forget to run newaliases afterwards.
