Default Email for hostname goes to /var/mail instead of /var/vmail

mailboxes that i setup with ispconfig get stored in /var/vmail. I can send and recieve mails for my virtual domains fine.
just for my server name its a bit diffrent:

i fist set up a new mail domain which is equal to my hostname.
mailboxes i set up for that mail domain will be created in /var/vmail as supposed.

when there are incoming mails for that domain postfix tries to put them in /var/mail instead of /var/vmail.

so only mails for one preconfigured mail account (i guess i set that up during installation) get delivered others will be rejected with "user unknown".

i also cannot find the mailboxes in my IMAP/POP3 account since its loaded from /var/vmail...

what might be configured incorrectly here? can anyone point me to where i can fix this?
