    Well I finally got email working like I want it to... yay!!!


    Now, I have 3 questions if you dont mind answering...



    1. We named our server vaughan.cohutta.com (well the server is just named vaughan). Is there anyway to give the server an alias to answer to? What we want to do is make our client's email change as smooth as possible. Could we give it somekind of ailias such as mail.cohutta.com? If so, how would I go about doing that? I cant fully change vaughan.cohutta.com because I have it registerd with our ISP and they are propagating the DNS traffic to vaughan.

    2. When I go to the homepage at vaughan.cohutta.com, I get a isp config default page. Where do I go to change that page? I want to put a php script there to forward the traffic to the webmail login. I know how to do the script, Im just not sure where to put it.

    3. What would be the best way to add a subdomain to every site we control. Point is, that when a user types in mail.domain.com (provided I can give the server an alias in number 1) I want them to all go to the mail login page. We have about 12 sites on this system.



    Thanks for all the help, over the past few weeks, Ive learned so much thanks to the community here!

    All you need to do is create a DNS record for mail.cohutta.com that points to your server.

    Do you mean the shared-IP page? Please create a web site for vaughan.cohutta.com with ISPConfig. BTW, it's a good idea to use a "technical" domain for the server's hostname, i.e. a domain that you don't use for web hosting, email, etc. Otherwise you could have problems with email.

    Create a web site for your webmail application with ISPConfig and then add all subdomains to that web site's Co-Domains tab.
