roundcube username_domain @localhost

Hi

My Debian Postfix Dovecot mail server is nearly ready for delivery (installed with the latest versions and updates)

Rather than create virtual users (max 30 users), I opted for PAM authentication using system accounts because this allowed domain-less logins, and Usermin password management.

The snag is that Roundcube doesn't allow me to 'add' the @domain extension to the account name.

The result is that emails are then sent from name@localhost and upon arrival they seem to have swapped the @localhost part with the recipient's ISP own @domain

Thus you can't respond to the email, without retyping the correct domain name

I have tried using the following parameters in db.inc.php :

//$rcmail_config['username_domain'] = 'holinice.com';
//$rcmail_config['default_host'] = 'holinice.com';

...but then the user can't log in anymore because the login is seen as name@domain

I even tried to update the email address that is stored in the 'identities' table of the Roundcube database, but again, authentication fails

Any ideas ?

thanks

After receiving a response from the trac.roundcube.net we made a new attempt at modifying the user's email address in the Identities table present in the Roundcube mysql database.

This time it worked. it isn't an ideal solution but it works.

We were wrong to indicate that manually modifying the the user's email address in the Identities table present in the Roundcube mysql database wasn't a viable option since our last attempt was successful
