    The email address is currently defined in the language file. The file is /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/mail/lib/lang/en_mail_user.lng or the corresponding file in the language you use. You may also use the language editor to edit this file.

    hello till,

    in ispconfig 3.0.3, whenever create an new email account, there is an email sent to the new email address from webmaster@localhost.tld, as shown below:

    Subject: ***SPAM***Welcome to your new email account.
    From: "ISPConfig3" <webmaster@localhost.tld>
    Date: Fri, November 5, 2010 4:39 am
    To: newemail@example.com
    Priority: Normal

    i don't think the webmaster@localhost.tld has ever been created when install/config ispconfig 3.0.3 and squirrelmail. why there is the webmaster@localhost.tld email?

    in your reply to this issue before, you suggested to update the webmaster@localhost.tld in the /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/mail/lib/lang/en_mail_user.lng file. however i notice the other *_mail_user.lng files for other languages need to be updated as well.

    my question is - 1) are there any other way to update this more easily, apart from command line, i.e. from the ispconfig 3 or squirrelmail GUI or web interface? 2) is the webmaster@localhost.tld need to updated or just leave it as it is?

    Login as an admin into your ISPConfig.

    System -> Language-Editor (left navigation bar) -> Language -> [Select your language] -> en_mail_user.lng (click that)

    Edit the field: welcome_mail_fromemail_txt

    In the current ISPCFG3 version 3.0.xxxx I cannot find welcome_mail_fromemail_txt - has it been renamed or where do I edit this?
