    I didn't check the smtp yet. Need to do so soon as I will need it too.

    All I solved is the 32 character limitation which really frustrated me and a way to prevent that the user needs to keep username and email identical.

    This will unfortunately need a script change. It will show ONLY the e-mail input box for new users. So not the username as this is taken over in the script by the email. Then with user edit it will not allow to change either email or user. I don't think someone would require to change the email?!

    diff isp_username.plugin.php_ORIGNAL isp_username.plugin.php
    >               // pcxtra: added one line to overrule the input box as it's not needed and taken over from email box
    >               $out_user = "";
    >       // pcxtra: added the condition that the user_email is not empty so in case it exists then it shouldn't be changed
    >       if( $user["user_email"] != '' )
    >         $out_email = $user["user_email"];
    >       else
    <         $username = strtolower($plugin_vars["user"]);
    >         $username = strtolower($plugin_vars["email"]); // pcxtra: changed user into email
    > /* pcxtra: no need to update email as it is not longer allowed to change
    > */
    < ?>
    \ No newline at end of file
    > ?>
    It's working properly for me.

    32 chars limit isn't there for fun, it is linux username lenght limit... if your user names are longer ftp and some system stuff will probably not work as ftp users are linux system users

    what does your script do ?
    i'd like to have one,
    which allows you input username and script will create email according it,
    or vice versa you'll input email and it will create username acording it...
    as [email protected] vs domain.tld_someone

    but then we still have not fixed smtp sasl authentification

    The script does do:
    'you'll input email and it will create username acording it...'

    Just locate isp_username.plugin.php, mine is at:

    See diff I posted for the changes between the original script and the changes I've performed. I prefer not to submit the full script, otherwise I will need to update for future ispconfig updates.

    So far dovecot + proftp are working properly with usernames over 32 characters. And linux itself uses only the ID's. It would be a stupid limitation, but I guess you could be right... anyway till I didn't found an easy solution.

    No smtp solution from my side yet.

    sounds interesting i'm going to try it tommorrow


    i'm sorry that i've been confusing you
    with /etc/dovecot.conf like
    and [DOMAIN] prefix smtp sasl will work perfectly, as i'm using this solution for a year :)

    i was tryin find solution, when using [WEB] prefix for username

    Can you put content of whole file
    isp_username.plugin.php in here?

    i've got the patch propery now :)

    but this is still not working without limit..
    email part before @ is now extended to 31 characters (without domain which is not included) but username is still cut to 31 characters ?

    as from virtusertable:

    [email protected] domain.eu_0123456789012345678901
    [email protected] domain.eu_0123456789012345678901
    [email protected] domain.eu_0123456789012345678901
