Handling mail for the server's hostname

Question

Hello, I notice that in Froxlor, you can't set up a domain that's the same as the server's host name.

 

How then is email for the server's hostname handled?

 

For example, if my server's hostname is somedomain.com and I haven't set up somedomain.com as a domain with email accounts in Froxlor (because you can't), how would mail@somedomain.com be handled when it arrives?

 

Would it be handled by the configurations in /etc/aliases instead?

 

I'm a little confused. Thank you in advance!

That's why it's wise to use "froxlor.domain.tld" for froxlor so you can still use "domain.tld" as customer :) 

 

But anyway, yes, the mail-aliases handle this domain (as it is not found in the virtual domain list)

      Hallo,
       
      ich habe leider ein Problem mit Froxlor.
      Zu meiner Situation: Froxlor läuft auf der Subdomain web01.meinedomain.net
      Jetzt möchte ich die Domain aber auch noch weiter Nutzen und habe mich daher als Kunde angelegt und die Domain meineDomain.net als Domain hinzugefügt.
      Dort kann ich auch weitere Subdomains hinzufügen. Das scheint soweit auch zu klappen ich sehe das er VHosts anlegt und auch die Verzeichnisse im FTP anlegt.
      Wenn ich jetzt allerdings versuche auf meinedomain.net oder eine andere Subdomain unter dieser Domain zuzugreifen leitet er mich auf web01.meinedomain.net
      Ich habe mich schon in den Einstellungen umgeschaut konnte aber keine entsprechende Einstellung finden an der das liegen könnte.
      Wie verhindere ich also das er mich auf Froxlor umleitet?
       
      Mit Freundlichen Grüßen

      Hi everyone,
      I'm running a Debian 10 Buster Server with PHP7.3 installed. The PHP7.3 update is the new component in the system. since then, I can't find any Mailboxes. There are no folders in the var/customers/mail/[customer] directory.
      If you take look at the Screenshot, you see, that the E-Mail adress is existent in Froxlor. 

      Mail Bounce
      Mail Log
       
      If I missed a log, please let me know, so I can attach it
      Best regards,

      Hi,
      Wile doing migration of email accounts from one froxlor server to another I have noting some thing.   Expecting some clarification on this.  As we all know emails are normally stored in the location "/var/customers/mail/user/domain.com/user/Maildir/" .   I create email accounts via froxlor panel and copy the email files directly via scp or rsync from old server to new.  The strange thing I have noticed is it is not coping custom folders and its emails like we have in source.  
      The solution I have found for this is to use imapsync between old and new.  imapsync is preserving custom folders like as it is in source.    Does it mean custom folder settings are stored somewhere else?  How we can preserve it and copy emails manually?

      I am sorry to make another post, I appreciate the help.
      If I change the below field:

      Will this change everything across the system? I want to change 'something' to 'anotherthing' 
       
      Thanks!

      Hi guys, have just got froxlor set-up and looking around it getting it ready to move all my clients into, one or two things I haven't been able to see yet.
      Mail settings, I'm used to being spoon-fed mail settings when I create an account, generally are these fixed so I can make a note? And is there a way to use mail.domain.tld rather than using the primary server domain for example? I'd really like something like that to be the default when I create a new website/email etc if possible. Ftp, is it possible to set ftp.domain.tld as a record that works for FTP automatically when an account is made under a customer? Many thanks, enjoying froxlor so far :-)
