    Default Multiple accounts - Multiple SENT folders

    Hi all,

    We (a company) need to get confirmed one thing before we go from Exchange (yeah, it sucks) to Zimbra. This is how we need the multiple accounts email system to work (which we do in Outlook with Exchange); All employees has their own personal account and all these accounts has full access to sales@ and support@ which means each employee can see each inbox for their own account as well as sales@ and support@. 3 "sets" of folders for each account visible at all times.

    The question is;

    Can we set up those accounts so each employee sends a sales@ note (from the sales@ inbox) and then have the sent note stored into the sales@ SENT folder? As I am using it now (web client), that is not happening and a sales@ sent note goes into my private sent folder. This makes it hard to see what another employee has replied when the sent note is in another’s sent folder.

    Did I explain myself clear? I hope so. A local provider is checking this now but it takes quite some time and we need to get away from our today's Exchange provider.

    What kind of IT level do I need to be at for installing Zimbra on our server if we dont want to do a Hosted version? Our server is hosted but dedicated server so we should be the access to install it. Is it difficult and time consuming?

    Thanks and I hope you can help.

    Share the sale's sent folder - does a copy go in there when you reply to something in sales's inbox?

    Hi mmorse,

    we havent got admin controls since we only have a trial period for testing so I cant do any settings other than the web client. The provider say they have given jan@ account full rights to sales@ and support@. You mean share, like the rights of the sales@ sent folder?

    When having a new email in the sales@ inbox and when i reply it doesnt put the sent note into the sales@ sent folder as I want it to, it puts it to my jan@ sent folder.

    If jan doesn't have permissions on sale's sent folder as well the on-behalf-of feature can't put a copy there.

    Here is how we have set up the trial accounts, the way we would like them to be.

    EDIT: You can see all 3 accounts on the left are fully separated.

    According the hosted Zimbra provider, jan@ has permission to sales@. You mean that it should work, even in the WEB client?

    Hmmm, maybe they havent given permission to the sent folder... that would be strange if they didnt.

    Pic is too tiny - I can't see if you have sales's sent folder mounted in jan's account - much less any other folder name

    At the moment the on-behalf is completely automatic & doesn't need personas to do it.

    Example:
    Create 5 accounts (well I know you can't but bear with me)
    1) Shared
    2) User1 -manager of shared's inbox & sent
    3) User2 -viewer of shared's inbox & sent
    4) Test1
    5) Test2

    Send message from user1 to test1 (or user2 to test2) and both user1 & user2 can see the sent mail - best if you're using conversation view so it's shown when not in the shared sent folder and working in shared inbox.

    Zimbra will show this as 'sending on behalf'
    The headers look like:
    From: shared@domain.com (so to test1 or test2's perspective it's shared sending the email)
    Sender: user1@domain.com (so yes test1 or test2 can technically view the mail headers and see which person sent it if not using ZWC - some mail clients may display this)
    To: test1@domain.com

    You'll want to keep an eye on how this will change slightly in Bug 22819 - reply to another user's message is always on-behalf-of (The ability to grant others 'on-behalf' sending permissions, and associated option to always send 'on-belalf' or not when replying in shared folders, and/or drop-down choice when sending.)
    Bug 19146 - send on behalf of for delegate access for ZWC
    Bug 27259 - Option for "On behalf of sent mail" to go to "on behalf of" user's sent items

    Might also watch Bug 25875 - allow user migration or remapping of reserved folders on ZWC Not the main intent, but we used to have zimbraPrefSentMailFolder (which chooses where the sent mail is stored) per options > identity (or what we call preferences > accounts > persona today) in 5.0.x it had been removed on identities when re-vamped Bug 17320 - Next rev of (mail) identities preferences management (server side) so thus you can't have multiple anymore (ie create a persona in jan@ for sales@ & store sent mail in sale's sent) you can only have one per user.

    Before I forget: Welcome to the forums!

    Just to orient you a bit:

    Bugs & RFE's (requests for enhancements) can be filed/voted for in Bugzilla & tracked (see priorities & what release their going into) via PMweb.

    The blog lots of good articles - a good one to checkout is: Open Source Product Management: How do features get into Zimbra? » Zimbra :: Blog

    Last but definitely not least - the Wiki has all sorts of collective knowledge in it.

    It is important that the accounts are TOTALLY seperated. I would say our setup would be like this;

    1. Jan Private account (NOT shared, this is a private account).
    2. Sales (Jan has full rights)
    2. Support (Jan has full rights)

    We didnt want on-behalf-of in Exchange so we did a FULL permission instead, meaning we can now reply from sales@ without the on-behalf-of. As you explain below, the jan@ would be used?

    We would want;
    From: sales@domain.com

    Jan
