    The main account belongs to the Linux user that owns the account, and as such behaves differently than other mail accounts. The main account can receive email if you set up a a forwarder that points to it at username@servername.com.

    Example:
    * username = joesoap
    * domain name = mydomain.com
    * servername = myserver.com

    If you want joesoap@mydomain.com to work, then create a forwarder joesoap@mydomain.com -> joesoap@myserver.com ;)
