    I have an ISPConfig installation with a lot of websites on a CentOS 4.5 server and everything is running great.

    However I have a couple of questions:

    1) How can I forward my local mail accounts (i.e. root, ssh_user_example, etc. to be delivered to a virtual one ([email protected])? I 've noticed that I have some files in the /var/mail folder that I assume that are mails:

    [[email protected] /var/mail]# l
    total 8.2M
    drwxrwxr-x   2 root          mail 4.0K Oct 26 01:57 ./
    drwxr-xr-x  14 root          root 4.0K Sep 20 17:14 ../
    -rw-rw----   1 admispconfig  mail 8.1K Oct 25 13:10 admispconfig
    -rw-rw----   1 erebus        mail    0 Sep 20 20:23 erebus
    -rw-------   1 root          root 8.1M Oct 26 01:57 root
    -rw-rw----   1 web11_anonftp mail    0 Sep 26 16:14 web11_anonftp
    However if I login as one of these users, the system says I have no mails:

    [[email protected] ~]$ mail
    No mail for erebus
    Even if I delete all data from /var/mail, after a while they are regenerated...

    2) I've noticed that if you enable a user as administrator and you give him a limit of 20 MBs for example, this limit is also applied to the web dir -- no matter if the website has more space available. I can accept this behaviour as normal -- however I would like to have some users as administrators without applying an e-mail account to them (so as to avoid filling up with spam mail while these mail accounts will never be used). Can I have somehow a user created with the administrator flag without applying an e-mail address to him (so as to be used only for http auth and ftp)?

    Thank you,

    1) I think you will be able to do this in the aliases file:

    2) Not in ISPConfig 2.2.x, the 2.3.x dev releases have this feature. I recommend that you just give the admin a useless email address (some chars and numbers mixed) so it is very unlikely that the admin will ever get a email.
