(FAQ) MDaemon 11: Why do users have to login using their entire email address after I upgraded to MD

Why do users have to login using their entire email address after I upgraded to MDaemon 11?

By default, MDaemon 11 requires users to login with their full email address and password, instead of just their username (or the first part of their email address before the '@' symbol) when using POP, IMAP, SMTP, WorldClient, WebAdmin, or SyncML.

If you wish to allow users to use just the username of their accounts to login, follow these steps:

  1. Click on Setup
  2. Click on Preferences...
  3. Click on System on the left pane
  4. Uncheck Servers require full email address for authentication
  5. Click OK

Additional Comments

Disabling this option is not recommended, since it can cause conflicts if you have more than one domain.
