Postfix Admin Question
I get this error when creating a new user USING POSTFIX ADMIN -
Invalid query: Duplicate entry ‘email@example.com (188.8.131.52)’ for key 1
- but the user is created in the Mysql Database though the Mailbox Directory are not created.
- when I edit the config.inc.php in line where it states firstname.lastname@example.org to another name, it creates the new user and Mailbox Directory with no errors, but if i create a new user again it shows the same error message, that’s why I have to keep changing the same line in config.inc.php to make it work.
Are there other ways in fixing this problem?
- I have already followed the Functions.inc.php EDITING from http://switch.richard5.net and all of the other websites suggestion
Here is my config.inc.php

I did not change everything that says "change-this-to-your.domain.tld" because, on our live mail server have the same pattern.
And, when i tried changing every option that has "change-this-to-your.domain.tld" to my real domain, it still does not fix my problem I have post above this FORUM. So, by changing every option that has "change-this-to-your.domain.tld" to my real domain would not fix my problem. Smile
I have followed the instructions of other websites like high5.net to change my functions.inc.php where it says EHLO to HELO, it still didnt solve my ERROR above this FORUM.
Please feel free to ask if you need to see any of my conf.
- The postfix can receive and send mail
- Postfix Admin can create Users and the Mailbox Directory but i have to change the config.inc.php everytime when i need to create a new user so it won't show an error in creating a new user.
