Delete Admin alias

After spending all day building and migrating to MIAB I am dismayed that I cannot delete the “admin” alias and make it a regular account (user). I understand the required administrator, postmaster, etc aliases. I purposefully chose to use admin instead of administrator for that reason.

Is there anyways to release the “admin” alias?

Thanks for your time and attention.

You can create the admin@ account as primary if you type it in as your admin email in the setup wizard :wink: but i think this is not changeable later (alias :arrow_forward: account) if the alias is required :confused: @joshdata

Do I have to do a complete reinstall?

You can’t have admin@ be a user account. It must be an alias that forwards to an account.

Welp … time to find another mail solution :frowning:

I just want to make sure you’re aware, the only thing this affects is your username for authentication. It doesn’t mean you can’t use it as your email address.

I am aware of that, but I am in need of having all mail that goes to admin@ in it’s own account/inbox. This is needed to comply with certain logging/auditory measures.

Out of curiosity (knowing more will help me make the project better), why does an alias that sends admin@ mail into its own mailbox not meet the requirement? (Like, you could call the account its-the-mail-to-admin@.)

I asked the same question. The response was that each email address had to have it’s own account. I plead ignorance on their behalf.

Personally, I understand why and how you designed it that way.

Fair enough. :slight_smile: Thanks.
