    Hello to all..

    i just finished installing ispconfig to centos 4.4, and setup my 3 different domains there, create account/email each. What ive noticed is.. the user that i created from the other domain, can actually login to the other. Like for example..

    i have a domain,, i created a user from which is, user1, and has an email of [email protected], then i create another user2 for and has the email of [email protected]

    when i finished installing squirrelmail as my front end, and go to to try to login user1 for an email of [email protected], yes.. it successfully logged in. but.. when i try to login user2 on that particular squirrelmail front end, and yes.. it does, and automatically got a [email protected] which i did not in the first place created.

    im just confused about this, supposedly user2 can just have [email protected] and can login to, and cannot logged as [email protected] in

    please.. help..

    Users are logging in on a server and not a domain. The domain part in the login (behind the @) is only to specify the correct target server and is not part of the authentication process. Thats why you can use any domain or even the IP address as long as it points to your server, but it does not mean that you are able to login with user1 to the account of user2.

    ah ok.. so.. what will be the best solution? for example, the user/email that i created from one domain, can automatically have an email for the other domain. is that really the way it is?

    No, they dont have an email for the other domain. There is no solution needed as there is no problem with that. Usernames are always global for the server, thats why ISPConfig has the username prefix feature.
