Default mail server setup question

hi all

i have followed the prefect fedora 4 setup and its work fine, what my question is say you have ispconfig installed how does this create the emall accounts because postfix is the only one used to serve both incoming and outgoing mail has i have installed it once.

i know ispconfig creates the unix account to match the username you enter with the password, but what file does the url of the users mailbox go

unix account: user been created then . . .

eg: user@domain.com user

thanks

paul

ISPConfig changes /etc/postfix/local-host-names and /etc/postfix/virtusertable to create the email addresses.

These lines where normally added to your main.cf by the ISPConfig installer automatically. Did you get any errors during installation or twaeked the installer manually?

The lines are:

virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

Do you use ISPConfig to manage your server? Then you shall not edit these files manually.
