    Hi,

    I have the problem that for each alias domain a alias mail address is created.

    I'm not sure if this is a bug. Normally you should have when selecting an email address the choice between the domain or the alias domain or?

    Here the result:

    What do you mean "alias mail address is created"?
    I have created alias for domain with already existing mailbox and I do not see that additional email alias was created.
    Could you please clarify where is issue here? How can this problem be reproduced step-by-step?

    Hi @IgorG,

    lets doit :)

    Create the domains as follows:
    upload_2017-4-21_14-34-56.png

    Go to "testdomain1.de" -> Email Adresses -> Create a Email like: test@testdomain1.de

    Go into the Mail: "test@testdomain1.de" -> Switch to the Tab: "Email Aliases" -> Create an alias like: "asd@testdomain1.de"

    Go to the overview of Mail adresses and you see following:
    upload_2017-4-21_14-38-22.png

    Normally you would have the particular domain can select here:

    upload_2017-4-21_14-41-21.png

    Or is this not wanted with an alias domain?

    Hi B4c4rd1, based on our experience with PPA 11.5 (Plesk 11.5), any domain created as an alias will silently set up email aliases for all email addresses at the primary domain (testdomain1.de). So if you create user@testdomain1.de, then user@testdomain2.de through user@testdomain5.de actually do exist but aren't shown in the control panel. Further as I recall, an alias alias@testdomain1.de will silently create four aliases as well.

    So basically the user@ mailbox will receive mail for all five domains.

    It can be a bit confusing when trying to see what is already set up, but I think the intent is to not list 200 aliases on the Email Aliases tab or for each user on the Mail tab.
