I have followed the Howto for installation of Debian Etch, Apache, PHP, MySQL, ISPConfig. Excellent howto!!! Thanks!.
After this was all done, I also installed the standard webmail (uebimiau).
I had a lot of problems being able to log on to webmail (and I could not access POP or SMTP remotely), and after reading quite a few of the threads here I was able to determine that my problem was that my email accounts area created as email@example.com
and NOT as firstname.lastname@example.org
After realizing this, I was able to access webmail, and send and receive messages remotely, so everything seems to be working fine.
NONETHELESS, emails of the form email@example.com
are not very practical.
My site in ISPConfig is created with Host Name: www and Domain Name: mydomain.com, so I figured if I try to remove the hostname and work with just the domain name, and later add a co-domain........... but of course I cant just delete the Host Name...
How can I change my config files or whatever is necessary such that new email accounts created via ISPConfig have the form firstname.lastname@example.org
and NOT email@example.com
Thanks in advance for any help.
