Default Display of email addresses

Hi,

as i can remember my email addresses were shown in username@domainname format, now they are shown in username@hostname.domainname format. I can still recieve emails to both email addresses. Have you changed anything in displaying email addresses in User & Email in the last update?

Thank you.

It's a little bit confusing, especially for customers. Can I change it back somehow or is it a vital part of ISPConfig?

Queston 2. ISPConfig is creating automatically 4 email addresses in virtusertable file for each user:
username@domainname
username@hostname.domainname
webx_username@domainname
webx_username@hostname.domainname

How can change the way ISPConfig is handling the email addresses? I would like to keep only the first version, because only that one i created on admin interface.

Thank you.

You can set hostname.domainname to use an external mailserver in ISPConfig. Then it won't be written to /etc/postfix/virtusertable and /etc/postfix/local-host-names.

Ok, i have got answer form Administrator Manual (I know, RTFM , page 65:
"Mailserver: Please select if the local mail server or an external mail server is responsible for
treating emails addressed to the host + main domain of the site (e.g. www.domain.tld) (see
chapter III−2.3.3)."
So, I can freely change the mail server to External under site (eg: hostname.domain.tld) because under Co-Domains i still have the main domains' (eg: domain.tld) mail server configured to be local.. i see. smart
