    I thought the best method in setting up the plesk server was to set the hostname to

    server.domain.com

    or some such sub-domain.

    But then postmaster and mailer-daemon emails go to

    mailer-daemon@server.domain.com

    which is not setup as a vailid email, therefor bounces.

    What is the best way to set this up? Why not use just domain.com

    Or how do you setup the sub-domain with email?

    set server.bla.com to the rcptlist and receive mail from root.

    I think this was like I did with mine server.

    I think there is more to it than that

    So I have server.domain.com as the hostname, I have dns setup to point that subdomain to the server's ip.

    I then add server.domain.com to the rcpthosts located in /var/qmail/control

    Which tells qmail to accept mail for that subdomain.

    But how do I tie that subdomain email to an actual mailbox?

    I've tried adding that as a new host in plesk, but it wont let me.

    Did you ever find a solution for this one?

    If you wish for email addressed to 'user@sub.domain.com' to be able to go to 'user@domain.com', where the same usernames would be used for both 'domain.com' and 'sub.domain.com', then you would create/modify the /var/qmail/control/virtualdomains file. Add sub.domain.com:prefixnumber (where it is the same as domain.com:prefixnumber)

    Example:
    mymaindomain.com:1
    sub.mymaindomain.com:1
    myotherdomain.com:1
    aParkedDomain.com:1

    Since all of these domains/subs have the same prefix number, any email addressed to 'tom@mymaindomain.com', 'tom@sub.mydomain.com', 'tom@myotherdomain.com', and 'tom@aParkedDomain.com' would all go to the same email dir/box as 'tom@mymaindomain.com'

    This assumes you don't want to actually use a Plesk domain license to setup the subdomain as a 'full' domain where the users would be totally separate from 'mymaindomain.com' users.

    Hope I understood your objective properly.

    Or you could just change the administrators email to an actual email address in server prefs.
