Is there anyways to release the “admin” alias?
Thanks for your time and attention.
Do I have to do a complete reinstall?
You can’t have

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
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.
