Default email going to wrong mailboxes

I've got ISPconfig 2.2.8 installed and it works great but I noticed something wrong with the way users on different domains are receiving email that isn't addressed to them.

Just so you are aware, I got rid of the username prefix all together. usernames are without any "web12" or "domain12" prefix.

Here's the problem:

I have an account at rtate@domain1.com

If I send an email to rtate@domain6.com (and that address doesn't exist for domain6.com) then rtate@domain1.com will get it. This is the case for all the domains on the server.

Everything in the virtualusertable seems correct . . .

Any tips would be appreciated!

I guess domain1.com is the main domain of your server and you enabled catchall for the rtate user? Please have a look here:

domain1.com is not the main domain of the server.
catchall is not enabled for rtate.

This behavior is system wide, regardless of catchalls. If I send an email to vross@domain6.com (if vross doesn't exist at that domain), it will get send to vross@domain1.com.

Yeah, I looked at that page from searching the forum, but it didn't solve my issue.

no, domain6.com isn't a co-domain.

if an account exists on the system, and someone sends an email to useraccount@anydomain.com and that account doesn't exist at the domain being sent to, it will go to the domain that does have that account. I hope that makes sense.

You are talking about the usernames and not email addresses? This behaviour is normal, that you can send emails to the username, thats one of the reasons of the existance of the username prefix in ISPConfig.

This really only has to do with email being sent to addresses that shouldn't be receiving them.

If anyone sends an email to rtate@domain6.com, but rtate doesn't have an account in domain6.com, then rtate that belongs to domain1.com will get the message.

The proper behavior should be that the email sent to rtate@domain6.com would be dropped because there is not an rtate at that domain.

the usename for rtate@domain1.com would be: rtate

all the usernames for all domains are without any prefix, but they are all unique.
Their email address may be different from their username, but usually it's the same.

Ok, then its exactly what i posted in post #6. If you want to get rid of it,enable the user prefix again.
