    hi there,
    thanks for this wonderful application, I've set it up on a ubuntu breezy and is working good.
    anyway I've one big problem, I can log in to mailboxes via webmail but not with any other client on internal and external network.
    I've read many times this forum but I've not found a decent solution, thanks for the ideas.

    ok, I've managed to get it working, users must login with ONLY username and password and NOT username@domain.tld .

    it is possible to change this behaviour? I really need to login users via username@domain.tld form.

    thanks.

    No, because ISPConfig uses "real" system users instead of virtual users from a database. Real users aren't allowed to have an "@" sign in the username.

    thanks for the reply, falko.
    so there isn't a method to allow virtual users on ispconfig? maybe helped with a database?

    another question, I leaved my little server farm with a website configured, sometimes it results offline with a little status webpage, what does it means? overload check or something similar? thanks.

    Virtual users will be available in ISPConfig 3 which is currently developed.

    If you still see a status web page it means that Apache is still working. I guess it's some kind of status message generated by the software (CMS, Wiki, ...) you run on it.

    I use userdb located in /etc/userdb
    with my courier-pop server and it works fine.
    I use xxx@domain.tld for pop login.
    It will take a bit to set it up.

    But this kind of setup is not supported by ISPConfig.
