    Hi all, I installed IspConfig as Perfect Setup for Debian 4.
    I'm actually try to understand hot to create and use emails.
    If I create an email.. then I go on WebMail in Tools menu of ISPConfig, the webmail manager open asking me email and pass but i'm not able to log-in.

    The output of my postconf -n is this:

    postfix: invalid option -- n
    postfix: fatal: usage: postfix [-c config_dir] [-Dv] command
    host-78-129-240-70:~# postfix -n
    postfix: invalid option -- n
    postfix: fatal: usage: postfix [-c config_dir] [-Dv] command
    host-78-129-240-70:~# postconf -n

    For the webmail, you must use an email address to log in instead of the username.

    Hi Falko, thanks for reply.
    Of course the email address is what i'm using to log on.
    I tried all the possibilities too... it's strange.

    Hi Till, this is what I get in the mail.log:

    May  2 11:40:43 host-78-129-240-70 courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
    May  2 11:40:43 host-78-129-240-70 courierpop3login: chdir Maildir: No such file or directory
    I just realized now that in the server vps where I have to set the domain record I miss the MX.
    Probably I have to config this DNS Record. What I don't understand is what I have to write in the "Mail Server" (Fully Qualified, without a trailing .) field to config this MX Record. Any suggestion?

    Hi, have you put an X in "Management - server - settings - Email "Maildir"" ?

    FQN = or

    Hi. the X on maildir was NOT flagged and now I flag it.
    I can access at my webmail now, thanks a lot.
    Now i will check if mail works. For any problem I will write in some other topic.
    Thanks again.
