What you describe is the correct behaviour. The Username for pop3 and imap and smtp-auth begins with web... and is not the email address. The webmail does just a lookup of this username in the sql database when you type in the email address.

If you need email addresses as auth scheme, have a look here:

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
