user creation problem


I am trying to create user such as but I’m getting following error.

“Failed to save mailbox : The username domains is reserved for use by Virtualmin”

So I cannot make email user which I needed.

Can you help me how can I create user “domains”?


There’s 3 usernames that can’t be used – “logs”, “virtualmin-backup”, and, unfortunately, “domains”.

Using any of those as a username will cause problems with the way Virtualmin functions, and it’s hardcoded into Virtualmin to prevent those useernames.

Sorry, but isn’t a way around that other than choosing a different name.


Thank you for your quick reply.

I have no choice about it…
