    The email address [email protected] is a email delivery to the Linux root user e.g. by cron or other system software. If you like to redirect email that is for the root system user to a different address, then you can do that in the /etc/aliases file. Run the command "newaliases" afterwards to apply the change.

    I used the how to notes to setup the ispconfig3 from fresh install, I would like to change [email protected] to the hostname that was setup when installing the control panel, example: [email protected]

    I dont why this localhost.localdomain exist, is it important?

    as the problem is i test to see if mail works but forwarding the welcome email in the inbox to my personal email , and its says sent from [email protected] but i was this to be the server name?
