    Hello guys,
    I have a strange issue with my ISPConfig mailuser login (https://mydomain:81/mailuser/).
    If I try to login with a ispconfig login, like web9_user , I can login successfully ;
    If I try to login with the same user full email address, like user@domain , I get an "unknown user" error.
    Any idea?

    Thank you very much

    I think that's how it's supposed to be. I'm not sure if the login with an email address was enabled in one of the last ISPConfig versions. Which ISPConfig version do you use?

    the latest one, 2.2.19.
    I asked it since in the 2.2.18 changelog I read:
    - Bugfix: Patched the mailuser login to support usernames with @ inside

    There must not be any spaces in your username.

    This allows you to log in with the user's email address, but still the username must not contain an @.

    Then you will have to reconfigure your mail system to allow email addresses as username for pop3 and smtp in general by either switching to dovecot as pop3 mail server or by installing several patches to allow usernames with @ inside for courier.

    Additionally, the configuration changes will most likely not affect any users craeted before you installed the patches.

    Well, is there any step-by-step how-to, or maybe additional documentation on this process?
    I think it would be a very useful feature to let the mail users login with their mail address.

    Thanks for your work
