    I found a quite strange problem when setting email forward.

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

    When I set a email forward in andrea@andreatemp.com to 5 other email accounts:

    kenlee@createchhk.com
    info@andreatemp.com
    leekawo@createchhk.com
    info@createchhk.com
    kenlee@andreatemp.com

    all the email forward works ... except for the two info@ email accounts !

    I have tried and this is the workaround I found:

    1. set up info2@andreatemp.com as alias of info@andreatemp.com
    2. set up info2@createchhk.com as alias of info@createchhk.com
    3. re-set up email forward of andrea@andreatemp.com as:

    kenlee@createchhk.com
    info2@andreatemp.com
    leekawo@createchhk.com
    info2@createchhk.com
    kenlee@andreatemp.com

    Now all the 5 email accounts will get the email if I send email to andrea@andreatemp.com

    So.... does the ISPconfig treat info@xxxx.com differently when performing email forward ? Anyone has similar experience ?

    Rdgs,

    No, ISPConfig does not handle .info domains differently. But maybe you have a global alias for info@... 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).
