    All email for co-domains goes to the mail accounts of this website.

    If you need inidividual email addresses, delete the co-domain and create a new website instead.

    An example:
    Let's assume you have a web site with the Co-Domain and a user web1_info with the email address [email protected]. Then this user also has the email address [email protected]. Now if you add another domain to the Co-Domains tab, let's say, then web1_info also has the email address [email protected]. The emails for [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected] will all be stored in the same mailbox.
    If you need a mailbox of its own for [email protected], then you must create a new web site with as Co-Domain.

    ISPConfig uses mailboxes.

    I think its rather staight forward then confusing. A co-domain is a domain alias.

    If you have a email address [email protected], it will receive also the emails for [email protected], if is a co-domain of

    If you want to have a separate mailbox, create a new website for instead of adding it as co-domain to

    Ok, i can creat a new Web, but thats not good to handle, because the User get a new Webspace, new Traffic-limit... and normally has to pay for it...

    Its difficult for me to explain that in English. Deutsch wäre mir lieber! ;)

    I understand what VolkerST is saying as I ran into this today also..

    If I have created a user already and they have been up and running. They ad a co-domain and now want SEPARATE email based on that new domain.

    Till - you are saying, the only way possible for this to happen is to create a NEW SITE for this customer. The problem Volkerst is having is that this means that that customer - who was paying for a hosting package, with say 100mb of traffic - now gets a 2nd hosting package in order to fulfill their requirements of domain based email for the 2nd domain... when they have just paid for 1 package...

    I'd like to know - is there any way around this? Is there any way to make a client able to add their own sites ? I think this is only possible if you make them a reseller ?

    If so - is there any way to upgrade an existing client to a reseller without having to delete them and recreate them - as this would be a pain for them!

    Cheers- Jockstrap...

    A client may have more then one website too, not only a reseller. The difference is that the client is not able to create thew ebsite or other clients.

    Thre is a patch in the dev branch of ISPConfig that allows the selection of the email addresses created for the co-domains. But it is not finished yet.
