Default Cannot create mail accounts called 'root' or 'mail'

I cannot seem to create mail accounts called root@aarongray.org or mail@aarongray.org both of which I need to access to.

Default Partly solved

I was getting "The username is already in use."

I used different names for the User and Uname fields and it is working now.

But I am not getting root's mail.
