My MUA does not know about the server, my MUA knows about its
own mail profiles. If mails are addressed to the list and come
in on my PC and I hit "reply" then the MUA looks if it has a
mail profile with the very same email address. But if I can not
use this email address for *sending* because I can not create
this user on my server then this profile is useless and I have
to create a different sending address which is not selected by the
MUA automatically (instead the default mail profile is selected).

In the meantime I found out that despite the error message from
PLESK the mail user with the same name as the mailing address
was created anyway! It seems I get it to work...

Best regards, Stefan.
