Wonder if any workaround can create actual admin@ mailbox?
I have domain, for example @abc.com created. And now would like to add domain @def.com. When I tried to add email@example.com it said
“You may not make a user account for that address because it is frequently used for domain control validation. Use an alias instead if necessary.”
Can see there is an existing alias forward firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com and not modifiable.
Much thanks for any idea
It looks like the name “admin” is reserved
I think you normally have one firstname.lastname@example.org (the initial domain when you installed MIAB) and use that for admin purposes on all your domains. Then for each new domain, you just start by creating a real user on that domain - all admin work being done by the one initial email@example.com user.
I guess you could create a dummy user to trigger new domain creation, but that would not be an admin user and would not be called
admin. (You can grant admin privileges to other users, but that’s not quite the same as being firstname.lastname@example.org.)
I had exactly this problem and for many years have been using this solution:
- Create a user email@example.com
- Creat an alias firstname.lastname@example.org of email@example.com
- In email clients use firstname.lastname@example.org for authentication but use email@example.com as the name of the mailbox in the client. The only thing seen by email recipients is firstname.lastname@example.org
