    Can ISPConfig have mail addresses like joe@sub.domain.tld ?

    I tried it and i is not obvious to me how to to do this.
    I checked the forums and as far as i know, this is not addressed.

    I hope someone gives me a route to this.

    With the current stable version of ISPConfig:
    Email which is is sent to joe@sub.domain.tld will be delivered in the same mailbox as joe@domain.tld, which is the mailbox joe@domain.tld.

    It is something i do not like, because of that behaviour, it is possible to create two different loginnames /passwords like these:

    1 loginname/password for emailaddress joe@sub.domain.tld
    1 loginname/password for emailaddress joe@domain.tld

    One more bad situation:
    If you use a webmailclient like RoundCube for instance, it is possible to login by using the account for joe@sub.domain.tld, but the mailbox will be empty for ever, because the mail will be delivered to joe@domain.tld.

    I do not know, if something is planned to overcome this.
