    Below you see the sourcecodefrom a usual mail. It shows the right email-address like [email protected] but why it show in Delivered-To the ispusername in front of the domainname like [email protected]. I don't wanna tell the recipient the username of ispconfig.

    Why it shows the ispusername?
    How can I change it?

    Because the system uses system users, and the username is web1_admin.

    That's right but I don't wanna show every recipient the username from ispconfig.
    Can you explain how postfix uses the ispconfig username. Maybe there is a way to tell postfix to rewrite the name in the header.

    This header is in the mails that you get and you know your own username as you use it to login with pop3 for example :) This header is not shown in mails that are sent to external recipients.

    But it's possible hide the Delivered-To in the mail's headers, because I believe that spamassassin (in the local mail-server, when downloads the mails with Fetchmail, from remote ISPConfig mail-server) increments the score for that reason.

    Thanks a lot
