Rewrite sender address
Zimbra 4.0.3 Open Source.
I need to change sender addresses for all outgoing messages. J.Doe@olddomain.com should become JDoe@newdomain.com in every outgoing message. I saw this mentioned here but it works only for web UI. The same is for setting reply-to address directly in web UI. I need to rewrite senders addresses not just in messages sent from web UI but in messages sent from offline clients (Outlooks) too. Is this possible?
I went through Postfix documentation concerning my needs and it looks like Postfix can do it, but I am quite lost in all Postfix parameters and I am not sure how much it is affected or it affects Zimbra.
Can somebody help?
The same approach (changing zimbraMailCanonicalAddress) works for Outlook, the trick is that you have to recreate the Outlook profile after you change the canonical address. I don't use Outlook for email personally, but I tried this scenario just for the sake of the test. I changed my zimbraMailCanonicalAddress to firstname.lastname@example.org, installed Outlook connector and synced Outlook with my email server. I was using 4.5 network though, not sure if it will work with 4.0.3.

What do you mean by recreating Outlook profile? My goal is to avoid any changes in Outlooks because they are time consuming. Change setting on Zimbra would be very quick and elegant solution.
Found this thread via google, took a quick look and couldn't find anything else similar but if I overlooked something I apologize...
Anyway, I need to find someway to rewrite some of the outgoing addresses, namely just actual users, email lists and other aliases should remain as is. So email@example.com should be rewritten to firstname.lastname@example.org but email@example.com should remain as is, as should firstname.lastname@example.org... make sense? I see Zimbra supports a per user "reply to" but having the "from" rewritten is preferred. Is there something I can do w/ virtual domains? As a side note domain.org exists and is managed by another part of our company, everyone here has aliases on their machine (non-Zimbra) that points to @default.domain.org though. We just need the outgoing addresses for the users to look like a single organization.
EDIT: Well I found the "Canonical address:" field in the admin tool accounts section, however when that is set the aliases and "personas" don't work anymore... is there a way to have both?
