    Hello! I need to create an email address like postmaster@aaa.domain.com

    aaa.domain.com is my server hostname, i don't have a hosting account for that hostname and can't create an account for the hostname.

    So, how can i create that account?

    Thanks
    Cristian

    You cannot setup email account with hostname. If you want to create postmaster@aaa.domain.com then you need separate cpanel account for that.

    Hello,

    Setting up email account's for the server's hostname is not advised. Could you let us know the reason you need that email address so we can provide you with potential alternatives?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your replies, i needed the address to remove our IP from a RBL blacklist. They send confirmation emails only to that address.

    I do the trick adding a file in /etc/valiases
