    I've been stumbling through the ProFTPd docs for a couple hours without finding a direct answer to this question yet, so I'm someone here might be able to point me in the right direction.

    Proftpd is working fine for me now. If user "[email protected]" want to make an FTP connection, he needs to authenticate as "mytestdomain.us_dan". My question is, canI reasonably set up proftpd with ISPConfig to allow that user to log in as "[email protected]" instead? By reasonable I mean in such a way that changes to user passwords, etc get reflected to the appropriate config file automatically.

    No, thats not possible because ISPConfig uses /etc/passwd as user database and the @ sign is not allowed in usernames.
