    Hi

    is there a way to set up aliases for postbox names?
    On my actual system all postboxes (pop3/imap postbox name) are configured like


    so all users get their mail with
    pop/imap.domain1.tld + nameA@domain1.tld + password
    ISPConfig uses postboxes like

    web1_nameA
    web1_nameB
    web2_nameA
    web3_nameA

    etc.​

    for the "upgrade" from the old (handmade) system to ISPConfig I want to make it easy as possible for the users and want to setup aliases for all postboxes.
    So the users could keep their old settings and poll mail via pop/imap without any changes at their site.

    Does anybody knows a way to do this or has a hint for me?
    thanks in advance!

    This is not possible as ISPConfig uses real system users. Usernames like user@example.com would require a virtual setup, i.e. virtual users. This will be available in ISPConfig v3.
