    Hi forum,

    like others here we came across the problem creating users with prefix "[DOMAIN]_" when they belong to a domain starting with a number. We had two ideas to solve that:

    1. "Dirty hack"

    Set the global prefix to "_[DOMAIN]_". As at least SuSE seems to allow usernames starting with underscore, this could work.

    I'd like to know if other distros do allow that to. Check it with "useradd _testuser".

    2. "Smooth Hack"

    Change "isp_username.plugin.php" the following way:
    -> Check, if username does start with [0-9] - as it already does.
    -> Auto-prefix those usernames and only those usernames with an underscore then. E.g. "234domain.com_user" to "_234domain.com_user"

    As i'm not that deep in ISPConfig code maybe someone else can do a faster mod for "isp_username.plugin.php"
