Default Email problems lead to apache problems

I am having trouble with email addresses. I can't make an address with my domain name alone.

I would like to have:

Quote:
nate@example.com
What I get is:

Quote:
nate@www.example.com
If I create an email on a subdomain I get:

Quote:
nate@blog.example.com
I don't want any subdomains in my email addresses. What I did was erase my my hostname (www) from my domain then hit save thinking that would give me the email domain names I wanted. Then I added a cname record for (www) to redirect (www) to example.com.

I haven't had a chance to see if it fixed my email problem but it did break my website. I don't have www.example.com any more. I have tried changing things back the way they were but it does nothing.

If I go to example.com all of my pictures are linked to www.example.com so everything doesn't look so good. If I use https://www.example.com everything works fine.

http://www.example.com is broke.

https://www.example.com works?

You dont have to change anything, as ISPConfig creates the email addresses like nate@example.com automatically for the site www.example.com if the site nate@www.example.com has a co-domain example.com (with an empty hostname).

Thanks for your reply Till.

What I did is delete my hostname from my site and now I can't get it back.

I had to add (www) to example.com in the Vhosts_ispconfig.conf to fix my problem

I have an empty host in the co-domains but I am still getting nate@www.example.com. It was something I did because it used to assign user@example.com.

I tried deleteing www.example.com from the local-host-names but when I create a new email it puts it right back.

Please enter "www" in the host field of the website and make sure you have a co-domain with empty host and you will see that it works

Isn't that what you wanted?
