emails domains and co-domains question bug or a feature
 
Why is email aliases so strangely generated.

Example:

I create site www.dummy.net with dns records.
System creates in dns domain dummy.net with www A record.
When I add email account test@dummy.net (account user01)
in virtusertable automatically is generated test@www.dymmy.net

Normally, 99% people doesn't have email test@www.dummy.net
but test@dummy.net. To fix this problem I added in co-domain
dummy.net and now there are two entries in virtusertable for
account user01 test@www.dummy.net and test@dummy.net

My question is what do I need to change in code and where so that
aliases are generated ONLY for sites specified in co-domains I realy
don't need alias @www.dummy.net. If I want one I can always add
it in co-domain.

One more question, where in GUI can I see what version of ispconfig
is installed.

Thanks.

That's the default behaviour because sometimes there are people that need test@www.example.com. If you don't need it, you can set "External Mailserver" for that specific domain (on the "Options" tab), and it will be excluded from the Postfix configuration). BTW, there is no need to create a Co-Domain www.dummy.net if you have www.dummy.net on the "Basis" tab.

Thanks

External mailserver option works fine. Can you point me in what file I can
change that default option for www.domins is external mailserver.

Thanks

You can change this default in the form editor and in the dtabase structure, but it might break your setup so I dont recommend this.
