    Dear all,

    i have configure my ubuntu server using ispconfig base on tutorial on howtoforge.

    when i try to create an email user bm1_info with the address [email protected] and send an email using that account to [email protected],
    on [email protected] inbox email sender is [email protected] :(.

    i think, i make some mistake, but don't know where?

    can anybody help me?

    thanx for any response

    I guess you send the email with webmail? Please go to options in webmail and set a correct sender email address.

    Sounds like a DNS MX problem.
    Please test your domain at
    Enter your domain in the DNS report box, and see if your MX record is okay.
