    Ok I really jacked up some where in my config of my email... lol - I created a e-mail address and under "E-Mail Address" I have [email protected] and for username I have "something" and set the password... so then I go to log into my e-mail, great alls fine, but when I send e-mail out, instead of it being recieved as "[email protected]" it comes through as "[email protected]" lol, so I have 2 errors, instead of it being "blah@", its "something@" and instead of being my correct domain name, its "example.com".... now I have checked /etc/postfix/main.cf all is good there - domain names all are correct, no mention of "example.com" and I checked /etc/mailname and all is good there as well...

    Now another tidbit... I can login to webmail as both "[email protected]" and as "something" - both usernames work, ie the e-mail address and the user name I set in ispconfig! :confused:

    when I send e-mail out, instead of it being recieved as "[email protected]" it comes through as "[email protected]"

    << How do you send out your email ? (by webmail, pop3 or the "mail" command ?)

    You must set the correct sender address in SquirrelMail and RoundCube, just like you do in a "normal" email client.

    I don't know why it worked on your old server, but usually you always have to set the sender address manually.
