    I am trying to set up email accounts for my domain, but when i delete the users (and empty them from the recycle bin) i try to add a new one (the same name) and it says that the username is already in use.

    So is there a better way to delete them that i don't know about? Or perhaps where are they stored in the mysql database?

    Please empty all recycle bin's. It may take up to a few minutes antil users can be deleted from the recycle bin.

    Had to delete the users from the home/admispconfig/ispconfig/something users. That did the trick.

    Okay i had to do a re-install. The old users are still lingering around, and after i re-create them in ispconfig, i get an unknown user / incorrect password in squirrelmail. Where are the usernames stored so that i can delete them?

    Above you posted that the users where listed in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users, this means that the users ahd not been created by ISPConfig and that the users were not managed by ISPConfig because they existed before ISPConfig was installed. If you want to delete them, you will have to do this manually on the shell with the "userdel" command.

    The users are stored in the mysql database do a

    select * from isp_isp_kunde;
    select * from sys_user;

    see if they exist
