    I found a quite strange problem when setting email forward.

    for example, I have 2 domains known as "" and "" in my ISPConfig (version 2.2.15 in FC5)

    When I set a email forward in [email protected] to 5 other email accounts:

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    all the email forward works ... except for the two [email protected] email accounts !

    I have tried and this is the workaround I found:

    1. set up [email protected] as alias of [email protected]
    2. set up [email protected] as alias of [email protected]
    3. re-set up email forward of [email protected] as:

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    Now all the 5 email accounts will get the email if I send email to [email protected]

    So.... does the ISPconfig treat [email protected] differently when performing email forward ? Anyone has similar experience ?

    No, ISPConfig does not handle .info domains differently. But maybe you have a global alias for [email protected] in the /etc/aliases file, which is not managed by ISPConfig.

    Great !

    in that file there is a line
    info: postmaster

    so, I make it
    #info: postmaster

    Now all redirection works ! Thanks

    just wondering, after a default perfect debian 4.0 installation, the /etc/aliases only contained: postmaster:root but where do root emaisl go by default? I inserted a root:myuser and now they should arrive, but where di they previously go? I'd like to locate some of them...

    If there was no alias for root, then the emails went to the root account (/var/spool/mail/root if you're using mbox and /root/Maildir if you're using Maildir).
