Exclamation Mail configuration issue

I am not quite sure whether this is an issue in my configuration of the ISPConfig or the fact of some routing/firewall settings in the university I am in.

I've installed ISPConfig on the machine which suppose to be serv as a department server (Mail, CVS, FTP, bla bla bla). I've setup the web for the department and crated users (I took out user prefix web[WEBID]_ and just used normal names like stephan, john etc. I don't think it's a problem because i know that I wont have same usernames in different webs - anywhay I've only one web for now)

What happens now is that I want to set up IMAP - should actually run by default if one goes after "The Perfect ... SUSE...". The name of the machine is "alpheratz" and the doumain it is in is "cpm.aca.mmu.ac.uk" So in the settings of ISPConfig I entered alpheratz as a host and cpm.aca.mmu.ac.uk as domain. Wright so for isn't it?

I couldn't connect via IMAP first because the box "Maildir" in the ISPConfig settings for email wasn't ticked. So I did this.
The weird thing is that ICPConfig proposes following email for john --> john@cpm.aca.mmu.ac.uk and not john@alpheratz.cpm.aca.mmu.ac.uk as I would assume from my knowledge
Now I can connect to the server and put some emails form other accounts with Thunderbird but if i send emails with it I am getting the following as reply in Thunderbird
Code:
This is the Postfix program at host alpheratz.cpm.aca.mmu.ac.uk.
