    Hello guys!
    I recently installed a Centos 5.1 server (perfect setup) and I installed ISPConfig too ...
    I have a question ..: :))
    So, if I have e.g. 2 domains dom1:; dom2: , can I have 2 email addresses for example and at the same time???.
    Thank in advance!

    Yes you can.

    The real name with ISPconfig will be web1_admin (for domain, and web2_admin (for domain

    Ok, but I don't want to use the web[WEBID]_ in Management --> System Config --> Settings --> ISP Manager --> User Prefix.
    So, if I leave it blank, it will works, too?
    Many thanks again! :)

    OK, I understand.
    When I send an email from to, it will appear that the mail is from Is that right? Now, it is possible with some configuration, that the sender email address ( to become in when gets the mail ?; and when he replies to my mail (to the mail to be sended to ?
    Please tell me if it is possible somehow or not.
    Thank you very much ...

    Yes it's possible,
    I guess that you are sending the email with somekind of webmail program like UebiMiau Webmail, RoundcubeWebmail or Squirrelmail.
    If so, you can set the senders email in the configuration!
    Login on the webmail program, and find the configuration option.

    When you send an email with an email client like Outlook (express), the correct email will show up automatically (except when you look in the mail headers)

    Technically, there is a way to remove the prefix, however I do not recommend it as this will not allow you to make two users like you are wondering. For example you could not have and also Because the usernames on the server would be the same. However I suppose this could come in handy if you would like.

    Here is how to do it...

    Log into ISPConfig Web Management, and then click management > System Config > Settings > User Prefix and just remove that. You can also change that to a few different things, for example if you want the domain name you can keep [DOMAIN]_ or you could put something like [HOST] or [WEBID]

    I'm new to ISPConfig, and would like to know more about this.

    Let's say I have 5 clients, / / / & and each client needs to setup the following email addesses:


    Thus, I have the following:

    Will this be possible? I can't tell a user he can't setup a certain email account cause another user on another domain already uses it?

    Yes, this is no problem at all. Just make sure you don't remove the web[no]_ prefix for your usernames!
