You need to add the email users in ispconfig.

In ispconfig under email first click on domain at left. Click add new domain.

Then same section click on "Email Mailbox" click "add new email"

Just fill in the form.

If you want to add aliases it on the left also.

  • I've done it but e-mails never come to my gmail inbox and the SquirrelMail doesnt like me at all!

  • Must not be understanding on what you asking.

    When you setup the email in ispconfig mail will be delivered locally.

    Squirrelmail login would be user@domain.com
