    Hi Forumers,

    i have a strange problem on 1 of my servers running ispconfig 2.2.23 and debian etch

    So here it is:

    1. mail is sent to, does not have a mailbox named ebay, and does not have any "catch all" turned on
    2. does have a mailbox named ebay -

    the mail fails to deliver to BUT it gets in the mailbox

    Does anybody have an idea whats going on?

    What's in /etc/mailname?

    Did you remove the user prefixes in ISPConfig, and is there a user called ebay in /etc/passwd?

    both are true...

    Ok, that's the problem. and both point to the same server, and then Postfix sees that there's a user called "ebay" and delivers the mail to his mailbox. The solution is to not disable the user prefixes in ISPConfig...
