    Having some issues with email.

    We have two domains that are registered on ISPConfig and both require a email address of support.
    We can configure one successfully but when we add the second one the first one fails.
    We had some issues a while ago that falko sorted out with the removal of the support alias in the aliases database file.

    So is it possiple to have the following configured?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Open site 1 and go to users & email tab for 1st domain and add new user/email for 1st domain. Save it.

    Open site 2 and go to users & email tab for 2nd domain and do the same as above.

    That doesn't work?

    Also remember, check Trash Bin before doing this cause you might have some items there from previous attempts..

    Thats is what we have done and it does not work.
    Not sure if this is important or not but the owner for both domains is the same, so we configured a client and added the two sites to his account. I am pretty sure that should make no difference.

    No, that's no problem.

    What are the real email addresses, and what's in /etc/postfix/virtusertable?
    What's in the mail log if you send a mail to each of them?

    Thanks for answering falko.

    No sure that I understand the question, but I will try and give some more detail.

    Configure 2 sites for this example we will call them and

    We first configured as normal and added the as a email user.

    We then configured and added a as a email user.

    We then tried to email with the user details for The email then bounced back with an error.

    We have deleted account for obvious reasons so the virtusertable is not 100% inline with the problem.

    what it does have is the entry for the original support user
    the entries are support support

    I hope this helps

    Can you post this error here?

    So the username of is support. What was the username of
    Did you switch off username prefixes in ISPConfig?

    Sorry for the delay in answering the question.

    Yes I have switched off the username prefix and the the second user has a different login name, I think I was imaginative and used support1.

    When sending an email from hotmail I get the following message sent back

    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

    Delivery to the following recipients failed.

    If I send it via a outgoing Exchange server I get a 550 error.

    Hope this helps

    Did you get any error in the mail log file on your server?

    Its happened again.

    Had to setup a new user in one company and the same user with a different account under another company and the email is failing again. There is a difference though this time all the email is delivered to the first account we created.

    Any ideas.

    Also, I have tried to contact by email the company that offer paid support, but I never hear anything back, do they exist?

    Please have a look here:

    Sure we exist, but we have not received a mail from you.

    Interestingly I dont seem to have a $mydomain defined in my /etc/postfix directory.
    Is this right?

    Either put in myhostname or mydomain in, but please use a "technical" domain, i.e., a domain you don't use for web sites, email, etc.

    Added the change to the file, wasnt sure if I need to postmap it, but I did for good measure.
    Reloaded postfix and tested it, but it still delivers to wrong place.
    Any further ideas?
