Default userid=email address?

New to the ISPconfig world..and wow im impressed. I have it running on a test server right now, and thats all well and fine, but we have a lot of users use squirrelmail. The changeover that I hope to push through is their username is their email address.

Example: instead of a username of web4_bob, let it be bob@bobsdomain.com so that my users dont see or notice a difference in their email programs or the squirrelmail

Is there a way to alias this kinda of action, or set it across the board?

-Thanks!
James

You can manually edit the /etc/postfix/virtusertable (this is the path for a Debian install, don't know for any others) file.
And at the server configuration you can delete the prefix so that everyone will have their normal name as their account login, be cautious though because over multiple domains you don't want same usernames

What I would like the system to do is automatically generate (or I can manually) use the email@domain.extention as the username...no option for that?

Thats not possible. Linux does not allow the @ sign in usernames and ISPConfig uses system users for the mail accounts.

How is it possible that qmail allows it. Thats what this company is running it right now, thats what they have configured into their clients. I would rather not screw with a lot of changes.

I am just wondering..any insite would be all I am looking for..not trying to start a fight..

I think your qmail setup is using virtual users then, not system users. You can do the same with Postfix: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_po..._quota_courier
However, ISPConfig uses system users.
