    even in the official manuale I didnt find a more detailed information about email templates (default welcome or other) in the clients menu
    how to use those? Can the template send passwords as well (i see password variable)

    thx

    You can change the default message at:
    /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/mail/

    As of ISPConfig 3.0.4, the text of the welcome email message that is sent to new email accounts is stored in the folder /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/mail/.

    Variables that are displayed below a field in ISPConfig can be used in that field.

    no, it's something different... I am talking about the email-template in the client menu

    I tried to set it but I still get the same standard welcome message and it's unclear how to use "other" template ... no mention on the manual

    The type "other" is a template that you can use in client circles, as explained in the manual in chapter 4.5.3.3.

    ... same issue , edit the "Default welcome email" name ... just type "user_creation"
    then build message ...
    then creating email account ...
    But always sending default message:
    "Welcome to your new email account."
    but not my default modified welcome mail.

    i do someting wrong ?

    i also notice that email creation is not sending to the copy email (in order to inform the client for his credentials etc)

    The default welcome email is for sending new clients a message, not for new mailboxes. You can set up a custom message in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/mail/welcome_email_en.txt

    (If your ISPConfig is configured in a different language, you have to change the bold language tag to the correct one.)

    Most of these are not related for a email account, only for the client.

    hum ... edit : nano /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/mail/welcome_email_fr.txt
    then symlink to nano /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/mail/welcome_email_en.txt

    same result ...
    "Welcome to your new email account. Your webmaster."

    you put this file on mail or web server ? (i put it on web server)

    A symlink is not needed as you just need the file for the language that your ISPConfig is configured for in config.inc.php.

    On the mail server.

    there is no way to retrieve mail or name during mail creation ?

    From: ISPConfig <[email protected]>
    Subject: Welcome to your new email account.

    Welcome to your new email account. Your webmaster.
