    I have setup Suse 9.3 with the howto and installed ISPconfig. Everything is running smooth. I only want to use it as a mail server for clients. Does anyone know how I can just create client mail accounts using there domain?

    you can create them as system users with no login e.g (shell is /bin/false) and empty home you can do all that with Yast.

    and when you send a mail to that user it " creates it" as a mail user, you can see a Maildir directory on his /home/user

    hope it help

    Here is the scenario:

    We already host web sites for various cities in our state. Probably over 50. We have had some city managers asking about e-mail service. For example, let's say the city of soandso has a web site that we host under the domain But, let's say they are currently using some free webmail service. They want to be able to send e-mail using there own domain like [email protected]. We want to provide that ability using a Suse 9.3 box.

    Am I totally on the wrong path here or what?

    You can simply create a new web site in ISPConfig, with the Co-Domain - the actual web site can still be hosted elsewhere, no problem. Then you create all users and email addresses on the "User & Email" tab. You then need to create an MX record for the domain pointing to your ISPConfig server.
    And your users can use your ISPConfig server as smtp and POP3/IMAP server in their email clients.
