    Default Canonical Address

    When setting up a user, there is a field on the first page labeled Canonical Address.

    What is it and what is it used for?

    The canonical address displays in the 'From:" field of messages that are sent.

    So say your user account is: last@domain.com

    You could have a canonical to make it permanently look like mail is coming from: first.last@domain.com

    To take the place of a fixed canonical address you can also user mail identities (in the option tab of each user) so the user can select when they want to appear as first.last@domain.com or first.m.last@domain.com or just last@domain.com
    Mail Identities are for appearing to be signed in to another service-So from zimbra you could send mail as user@gmail.com without switching clients/browsers/etc.
    However that would only take care of sending, you would need an alias to receive mail at first.m.last@domain.com or first.last@domain.com.


    You can have some interesting setup's domain wide as well:

    Default Canonical Address

    I have been trying to find an email which I think is a canonical address because I cant seem to find the real name of the person who has been sending me emails. How do I go about finding who it is?

    This search from the admin console should give you the result:
    Code:
    (zimbraMailCanonicalAddress=mysteryAddress@yourdomain.com)

    Default Canonical Address

    I tried that and it said that no research results. Am I putting it wrong on the search maybe? I input it on the search as: zimbramailcanonicaladdress=(here I put the email address) and it came up no search results.

    Try this:
    Code:
    grep mysteryuser@domain.tld /var/log/mail.log
    if they have sent you mail recently, if not try looking in the archived mail.log files.

    Yes, you might want to post the headers of one of these messages.
