adding new mail user creates two accounts!?!


I've installed VirtualMin and am trying to get my head around the whole thing.

I am wanting users to be able to log into their email accounts using:

I changed the settings in:

"Virtualmin Virtual Servers > Server Templates > Default Settings > Mail for Domain"

so that "Format for usernames that include domain" is set to "username@domain".

Now when i add a new email user - it creates two email accounts (as seen in readmail):

"" AND ""

both of these accounts can be logged into via POP3

however - when an email is sent to "" it gets sent to the "" mailbox.

How can I change it so that only the "" is set up when a new email user is added - and the mail is delivered to that user?

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks, Mark.

Think i've found the answer to my own question here:

So I guess this is not possible :-(
