Email Setup for Virtual Server

Hi there,
Would somebody be able to provide me with an idiots guide to setting up email on VirtualMin for a Virtual Server.

The domain name will be managed elsewhere, and I’ll alter the DNS settings as required/told to do so…

Many thanks,


Things such as email should work pretty well after installation. Is there anything in particular you’re having problems with?


Well, I created a user with mail permission.

Logged into Squirrel Mail and attempted to send an email to myself. When sending, this is what I got.

Message not sent. Server replied:
Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable
550 5.1.1 Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table

Emails don’t seem to be receiving either…
