    Anyone here who might know if it's possible to create an email address for a co-domain?

    Example. I have in ISPconfig a client who's main domain is:
    Now he got an extra domain named:

    I've added "" in the co-domains, and now when going to "" it does show the "" page.
    The client now also wants an email address for "" (it's only for receiving mail).

    Problem: How do I create this email address?

    A co-domain is an alias for another domain, which means it's not necesarry to create a seperate mailbox.
    In your case is an alias for

    If you create the following co-domains for

    co-domain 1:
    host = www
    domain =

    co-domain 2:
    host = (empty)
    domain =

    When an e-mail has been send to [email protected], the mail will also arrive at [email protected].

    Hi Hans.. I'm aware of what you are saying, but this is not what I'm asking. (or I'm misreadings your reply)

    I've got one main domain:
    For that account, I've got one co-domain:
    Going to,, and works fine.

    The client has got email setup for
    Now he also wants an [email protected] email address.
    It's okay with him if it gets forwarded to the address.
    (note that the MX record for is setup okay.)

    So.. Question is.. How do I get ISPconfig to accept email for without creating a "main domain" account for it.

    I got it working.

    I needed to add the email address to the "virtusertable" (below the #### MAKE MANUEL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ####), and point it to the web17_info (the accout) of that user.
    After that I reload the file...
