    Default Split domain setup question

    Hi,

    We have such a setup at work:

    everyone has mail address user@domain.com

    we want 15 people or so try out zimbra.

    The way we have done it is to create a new domain for zimbra: zimbra.domain.com

    The mail server at domain.com forwards mail to the users who have zimbra enabled to their address user@zimbra.domain.com:

    ---> internet -> domain.com server -> zimbra.domain.com server

    This works like a charm.

    The problem comes when we send mail from the zimbra web client,it is not possible to change "From" field so when a user send mail it appears from user@zimbra.domain.com, how can we change the from field to user@domain.com ?

    After all this is just in a test period and we dont want clients to save zimbra.domain.com mail addresses, also it looks nicer with just user@domioan.com.

    Welcome to the forums

    You could add domain.com within the Admin GUI so that you can set the reply to address.
