    I'm migrating users from an old custom platform to Plesk. We have some users setup for outbound smtp e-mail with some random usernames such as 'user@blah' or just 'user' (ie not FQDN). How can I add these users to plesk so they can continue to send e-mail without changing their usernames?

    I don't want to change the usernames as that would require contacting each customer. If I can add the existing ones I can then just adjust the DNS for the hostname they use to point to Plesk and it will continue to work seemlessly.

    Plesk accepts both:


    and username@domain.com

    if the option to accept short mailnames is enabled in Global mail preferences. You must only create mailboxes with the name of the username. It is not technically possible to have a username different than the mailbox name.
