    i've been trying to find out how to have webmaster@domain1.tld and webmaster@domain2.tld but i can't even find a post on the forums that explains it.. i thought i saw one once but it's not the solution we're looking for.

    I found this in the RTFM:

    OK so that means i have web1_webmaster@domain1.tld as well as webmaster@domain1.tld?
    OK so that means i have web2_webmaster@domain2.tld as well as webmaster@domain2.tld?
    ...
    OK so that means i have web9_webmaster@domain9.tld as well as webmaster@domain9.tld?

    I guess that's the reason for the prefix that I got rid of early in the configuration.. assuming i can just turn the prefix back on again?

    Does that mean that the user will have to use their prefix_username as their pop3 username? that's kinda annoying but i have seen systems like that. i guess it's pretty much transparent to anyone except those setting up their outlook express.

    Can anyone confirm this? Anyone? Anyone..? Bueller...?

    Thanks!

    yes.

    yes.

    Usernames have to unique for the whole server, thats why there is a username prefix and why it should not be turned of if you want to host more then one website.
