    Problem: Email for [email protected] (NOT a real user) gets put into [email protected], a real user with username jim. is a domain we host.
    We have several virtual domains on a server. A lot of mail users. We turned off the ISPConfig prefixing for email users from the beginning because a lot of the accounts were being moved from another server and we wanted to use the same usernames.

    One email address is [email protected] username jim. This is the ONLY "jim" on the server, there are no others. jim is the admin account for, but he is not an email catchall.

    Mail for [email protected] (NOT a real user or email address or even an alias!) is sometimes put into jim's mailbox. Since it is always spam, it makes jim mad and gives me a headache... :)

    There are several other accounts where common names are used, even where email addresses use the same names for different domains and addresses (SO many "info@..."), but this is the only domain it affects. Both are vitural, there is no mydomain setting in Postfix seems always to reject mail to non-existent users. The MX record in the DNS points to the domain names as the MX domain.

    Any ideas? Thanks!
