    Why not let the system suggest a name for each mail user created.

    And limit the name to 8 chars (making unix style happy)

    my domain if i add a user then the system will suggest the following.
    1:st user : webhosti
    2:nd user : webhos01
    3:rd user : webhos02
    4:th user : webhos03

    And also before the system suggests a name it can check against excisting names to make sure the name is unique.

    regards / Daniel.

    You wouldn't believe how many people would complain if the username was limited to 8 chars, believe me... :(

    I don't like to state points on other appliactions and comparing them, but I feel the need to just do it this time.

    In CPanel/WHM I can create a new website with any name I want so long as they are not on the same domain.

    for example: [email protected] and [email protected]

    This is possible in these applications because they use virtual user accounts and not system user accounts like ISPConfig. Personally i would like to change mailusers in ISPConfig to virtual users, but therefore we will have to rewrite about 30% of the sourcecode. This is maybe something for a 3.0 or 4.0 version :)
