e.g. when logging in the roundcube gui, user + password will log you in but
when i append the domain to the username e.g. user at , it always
says login failed, is this normal, i mean logging in without the domain
part? although i have not make the box public, i was able to send mails to
the outside meaning postfix is working, right?
