    hello

    I have a mail account like myusername+mydomain
    but it's too big (my cellphone can check only usernames up to 20 chars), so I'd like to call it "x+mydomain" for example
    I can't just "rename" it, because the other E-Mail address is very used
    maybe doing a sym/hardlink somewhere?

    thanks

    [edit] or setting up another login for the same account (if possible to have multiple logins)
    i have root access to the server

    Rename it to the length you need and then set up a forwarder, identical to the original email address, forwarding on to the renamed one.

    but then I wouldn't be able to check the current account where it's already configured
