    It's been a long time i'm using ISPConfig and i'm now pretty familiar with it. But i never found the answer of this problem :

    When i create a user for a given domain, i can log in with postfix and i can retrieve emails with this username (for example) :
    username : web4_user
    password : user password

    But i never figured out how to log in with "[email protected]" instead of "web4_user". I'd like to log in with these one :
    username : [email protected]
    password : user password

    I found that my contains this line at the end :
    And my virtusertable contains at least a line where :

    So why can't i log in with "[email protected]" ?
    When i try, postfix logs is saying :

    Thank you :)

    The postfix authentication is done trough sasl, the virtusertable file is not involved in the process. SASL authenticates against /etc/passwd and all users in /etc/passwd are in the format web4_user.

    To authenticate with the email address, have a look in the tipps & tricks forum, you will find there descriptions for achievibg this with courier and dovecot and postfix.
