    You can change the domainmname, but it must be the same as defined within your /etc/hosts file.

    You can set your hostname like this:

    echo > /etc/hostname
    /bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname

    Verify the hostname with:

    hostname -f

    If the output of the hostname -f is:

    Your domainname within ISPConfig under Management > Server > Settings should be:

    Hostame: www

    Postfix was rejecting email to though with message user not found, because apparently it still looked for

    So, if I change my domain name in managment --> server --> settings, will i still be able to receive email? I noticed that incoming email is first checked to see if the user exists(eg, then it delivers it using the domain name i specified in server --> settings (

    No, this setting has nothing to do with postfix.

    Please make sure that you edit the co-domain from to on the co-domain tab too and not just the main website domain.
