Default postfix, full email as username

Hey

I found out why thunderbird ain't working. Cause i was using full email as username... Instead i have to use web1_username which i don't really like.
Is there any way to fix this/switch to using full email as username?
Server is installed using debian 3.1 tutorial..

Or at least just username instead of that prefix webX_

I know i can change prefix but no matter what i set it its ugly and really not practical

No, you cant change that beacuse linux usernames may not contain the @ sign.

You can remove the username prefix in ISPConfig under management > system config > settings on the ISP-Manager tab. But be aware that usernames must be unique for the whole server.

Was afraid of that..
Removing prefix is absolutelly out of question cause of uniqueness of names...

Oh well, clients will have to use webX_ as prefix

is there any posibility to use some diferent prefix?

I would prefer domainname.tld_username
or
username_domainname.tld

To use "webX is very awful".

Default solution

OKOK i know its little bit late
But i had thesame problem so i hope i can help next one who try the same


First: emailadresses as an login is possible with vituralhost,... but that we dont wanna do

second: its not true the system do not alow an @ as username that not true it simply works BUT postfix and procmail had a little problem to deliver to an user with an @

so we need 2 users. first ist the regular user where sendmail is able to deliver
like john,
second we simple use the passwd file and make another user with the same UID
so we have john@foo.bar with same uid like john

naturally we use in the system (for the aliase db and vhost table) only user john but for logins he can use john@foo.bar (doenst matter which authentication he need)

ok i knwo its quick and dirty but not really another thing the other solutions with vhosts do. its an quick simple thing for smaler servers without mysql mailtables
