Question Mail received is all redirected to adminispconf@localhost...

I have had a problem with mail received all being redirected to admispconfig@localhost.tidy-hosting.com.

There are no errors on sending mail and the sender of mail to a user on ispconfig thinks all is well, but the message never arrives.

When I checked info in /var/log/mail/info I got when receiving a message.

Jan 11 19:39:28 tidy-hosting postfix/smtpd[22074]: connect from zproxy.gmail.com[64.233.162.192]

Jan 11 19:39:29 tidy-hosting postfix/qmgr[21961]: 74D20164531C: removed


I though it could be a problem with aliases so I checked /etc/postfix/virtusertable which reads:

To understand why emails are sent to admispconfig please have a look here:

To which email address did you try to send? I don't see it in the log excerpt.

I think the problem was that the maildir box was ticked on the ispconfig web control panel for the accounts.

The emails were sent to both geoff(at)gdtrading.co.uk and admin(at)tidy-hosting.com.

Do you know where these messages will have gone to, if anywhere and if I can post them to the correct accounts somehow.

Great, it's OK now.
But the mail who are in /var/mail/ xxx stay in it or ISPConfig move it to /var/www/xxx/MailDir ?

You have to move the mails manually. Tools like mb2md might help you:

Do you have a log excerpt with any of the above mentioned email addresses?
