    how could i allow the users of my servers , use the mail service without having to write the full username@domain.com in the outlook express.

    cannot it only be the username without the domain ??

    what should i change in the exim.conf to let the users only type their username in the user feild in oultook express


    i ll appreciate a help.

    and any idea is welcomed regardless of the costs ( any other service can be sacrificed to let this thing done)

    and thank you

    http://squirrelmail.org has a plugin that allows for this. It's limitations is that it is only usable for a single domain, so each domain would need to install it. It's an easy install.

    Go on, have a guess
    Since cPanel uses virtual POP3 accounts so that you can have the same username on multiple domains then you have to use the full email address. It's nothing to do with exim and there's no way around it.
