    Default preventing users from logging into wrong domains

    So far, I have yet to find a way of preventing users from logging into the server using any domain name which exists on the server.
    Is there a way to enforce users to log in using the domain name they were assigned?

    Example:

    Domains include
    domain1.com
    domain2.com
    domain3.com

    Users include
    user@domain1.com
    user@domain2.com
    user@domain3.com

    Right now, user@domain1.com can log in from url host.domain3.com for example. I want to force user@domain1.com to only be able to log into their account at user@domain1.com.

    This does not make sense.

    If the user is same for all the three domains then there should not be any problem. But if the user is different and just their names are same like raun@domain1.com and raun@domain2.com then they should not have the same password.Or change the usernames.But why to force users?

    Why are my posts taking so long to show up? I've already shown I'm no spammer.
    I responded to this with a clearer explanation, I hope that's not lost?

    The moderation system on a forum (including this one) is automatic, you'll have to wait for a moderator to approve any post that's put in moderation.

    Looks like my post was lost so here it is again.

    You're right, I should have used a different user name in my description.

    So here we go again.

    Domains include
    Mike@domain1.com
    Bob@domain2.com
    Larry@domain3.com

    So, I want Mike@domain1.com to be able to log into domain1.only and I want Bob@domain2.com to be able to log into domain2.com.
    It's not a massive requirement, it's just that if users from different domains can log into other domains, things get confusing when you are running a dozen email accounts.

    But Mike will be able to log into that domain only where he has got his account.He can not log into domain2.com when he don't have an account in domain2.com.I am sorry but if you are trying to ask something different please clarify.

    So let's say the main domain for the server is domain1.com. Then I have another domain called domain2.com.
    In testing so far, mike@domain1.com is able to log in as mike@domain1.com but using the URL of say mail.domain2.com then logging in as mike@domain1.com.
