Without looking at the RFC, I seem to recall is says that you must

[EMAIL PROTECTED] user, replace it with "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" and
then create an alias "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" pointing to

Perverse maybe, but it has been requested, and I see no reason not to allow it.

because it leaves the domain owner without a way to log into qmailadmin, unless they have manually edited the vpasswd entry on some other mailbox and given it domain- or system-admin access?

if i'm not mistaken, qmailadmin has a way for a mailbox owner to forward their mail to some other address. there's no reason "postmaster" can't use this feature to forward their mail to the "admin" address.

I have also been asked to not automatically create the postmaster user with the domain, that will never happen.

i fully agree.

Once you have created a domain, you are welcome to screw it up any way you want. (Using the onchange mechanism maybe)

you've obviously never seen the "qmailrocks" list... the truth is that if you make it easy for somebody to mess up their system, SOMEBODY WILL. and they'll come whining to me on the qmr list, or to everybody here on this list, because they didn't understand what they were doing when they broke it, and the fact is they don't really want to understand it- they just want "clicky clicky and it works" so they can get back to solitaire and myspace and lolkats.

I can't remember, there may be a limit where you can't delete the only administrator in a domain. There should probably also be a limit that you can not delete the user you are logged in as, but that may only be a problem for qmailadmin and vpopmaild.

i'm in favour of both of these options, as hard-coded limits, with no override possible unless you're deleting the entire domain.
