[SOLVED] Persona in Zimbra desktop
I am very thankful to jjzhuang who promptly responded to all my posts. One of the reply was having a reference to creating a persona in Zimbra desktop. I have the following questions on using persona ?
If I add a Persona to an account, that gives me one more email address to use in From field while sending messages. I will appreciate if the following doubts can be clarified.
a) Does adding a persona work exactly same as address guard addresses in yahoo.com web account (once I manually create all the address guard addresses from which I want to send emails) ?
b) Does the default options while creating a persona ensure that the reply to the mail sent from the persona comes back to the persona and not to the email to the main account address. I see additional fields that can be used while creating the persona for having a different reply-to email ?
c) When do I use the "Use this persona" fields ? What is the default behaviour if do not change anything except Persona Name and From fields.
d) Is the Persona attached to the same account or is available for all the accounts (e.g. If I have configured Zimbra for ymail.com as well as yahoo.com and add persona to yahoo account, does it affect ymail.com account in any way ?
Zimbra desktop persona does work like address guard
a) It allows mails to be sent from any persona that has been created (just like address guard email id if set up to allow to send mails also)
b) Mails received on a specific persona (or address guard email id) when replied / forwarded is sent from the same persona (or address guard email id)
c) For received mails to specific address guard email id, it comes either to inbox or gets delivered to a specific mailbox specified while setting up the address guard email id. Both inbox / any other folders gets synch'd with Zimbra desktop.
d) If you delete an address guard email address from yahoo, the persona for the same needs to be deleted from Zimbra desktop to keep it compatible.
Persona does not mask Primary Account
Actually, this is not the case. I just upgraded to Desktop 7.1.2 on Kubuntu 11.10 OnericOcelot and have a Gmail account I am sending from with an alias Persona to a Yahoogroup listserv.

Here is how it is received in my Zimbra NE instance:
If I send to myself an email from ZDesktop in that Gmail account using the Persona I created, the headers show that the email was sent from the Gmail address "on behalf of" the Persona. So, the masking function of the Persona is not working properly.
