    Hello howto forum,
    maybe a banal question for someone who knows it but I am a bit stuck: can I create a user in ISPconfig with email different from his user name.
    Example:
    user-name: jenna
    email: secretary@...
    This is essential as I have allready mails redirected to my server with allias secretary@...

    And another question - in my logs i see that there are plenty of emails going to ispadmin@... how can I read them or redirect to my account (I am one of the users on the web).

    Cheers!

    Sure, email address and username can be different.

    You mean admispconfig? Don't touch or redirect these emails, they are needed to create the email traffic statistics in ISPConfig!

    Thank for the hint falko. Won't toutch it :)
    This is good to know... I suggested so as well but wasn't sure because I still have a problem that the user jenna doesn't receive any emails though I created a user in ISPConfig with username jenna and email [email protected]
    Do I need to do some forwards or enter some aliases? Where is my logic mistake?

    Thanks again guys you are doing great job!!!

    I hope this will help to find the problem. The emails are still bouncing back.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    That's the crucial line: the email goes to load-balance-smtpout.mmu.ac.uk.
    Can you post the real recipient domain name?
