View Full Version : multiple emails multiple domains - 1 vps

11-16-2003, 10:58 PM
As you reseller guys have already known that each vps account can have many domains hosted but 1 will be the main account (domain).

So when creatin emails for other domains hosted under the main domain how do you guys go about creating them ?
As the cp does not have an interface to add emails for other domains under the main domain.
So creatin an email for the main domain why@abc.com will also replicate itself to why@def.com ( add on domain under main account ).

Some other cp's allow the emails added on via a drop down box but this I think we have to edit the sendmail.cf & virtusertable right ?
As in this link http://www.sendmail.org/virtual-hosting.html

So you guys doing it manually ? or you guys have a script to inferface with it ?

on a seperate note, for additional vps, i email billing for it ? and they will automatically bill my cc ?

We guys doing it manually I think. There is no way to do it through the CP. And I haven't actually tried it yet, but I'd like to give it a go.

I need a couple of test domains to try it out with (not wanting to use my customers as guinea pigs here!)

I have the same problem... I want to be able to add emails accounts to domains that are inside the main domain.

I see that I'm not the only one with this question. For now, the only answer I see is do it manually. But, where is West Host Staff's answer?...

Please we need an answer from YOU (westhost). If doing it manually is the only answer, please show us how to do it.

thank you!

For assistance on the manual piece, CK1 has a good explaination. I find it easier to FTP the files localy, make backups, then edit them localy, and FTP backup up.
