    After few months i could get my ISPconfig working without a problem. I can create websites, clients and all the DNS option, just fine.

    However, I can not really get the email addresses right to my clients websites.

    The problem is that my clients email addresses is at this format: [email protected], however i would prefer, [email protected].

    I know that i have to define on co-domain, but that is nt working, how this is done?

    I have this on my co-domain:
    IP Hostname Domain www

    and this on the MX record:
    Mailserver Hostname

    Do you have any information on how to become trustful on sending email to people?

    for example, i tried to send a email from Hotmail to my server and worked fine, however when i replied to hotmail, hotmail was blocking my emails from my server. any advices?

    do you have a routable address assigned
    to your email server?

    I think so, because you can receive emails from hotmail, so that means that the server is running and visible. But what you mean about routable route.

    I have the services on my router for the ports

    You must create a Co-Domain with an empty hostname (i.e., no www).

    Just a tip.
    If you like spam, go ahead and post your email addresses on forums and websites.
    If you DO NOT like spam, NEVER EVER post your email addresses on forums and websites!

    You are sending from a dynamic IP address. Most dynamic IP addresses are blacklisted nowadays. To circumvent this, you can relay through another mail server:

    You can do this in ISPConfig. Go to the User & Email tab of the web site in ISPConfig.

    This i fixed by subcribing for few services of spam filters, so now i can send emails to any other email server.

    i think you did not understand me. This domain ( is the main which holds the ISPconfig. ALso the default (It works!) site is enabled there.

    If i create a site in ISPconfig with the same domain it will have problems, i guess.

    If you want to use that domain in ISPConfig, you must change the hostname. I'd use a "technical" domain for the hostname, i.e., a domain that you don't use for web sites and email, but only for namig your servers.

    So i can not use in ISPconfig, but or what?

    Change the current system to and then create the on ISPconfig!

    Sorry but i did not understand

    Buy another domain name and use it solely for naming your servers, but not for email and web sites.
