    Question Sender Name <> Account Name

    Hello;

    First of all, great job folks. Im my opinion, this is a real "Exchange Killer".

    Using Zimbra 3.1 on RHEL 4 and Windows 2000 Active Directory (GAL and authentication).

    We are testing the integration with Active Directory. All is working perfectly.

    Searched the forum and found nothing about our problem. Let's try to explain:

    We have and internal username for logon on Windows boxes and the mail account is different from that.

    Active Directory
    ============

    Account Name: peters
    Full Name: Peter da Silva

    Zimba
    ====

    Account Name: peters@domain
    Full Name: Peter da Silva
    Alias: peter.silva@domain

    When Peter send a message via Zimbra Web Client, the from header must contain peter.silva@domain not peters@domain. This must be server side enforced.

    Maybe it's a basic question, but I need help.

    Thanks;

    To get this you should make the account name be the out going address you want. Then put the other variations as aliases. A user should be able to login with any of the alias or the account name itself.

    Feel free to file a bug in bugzilla for add the ability to pick/set a server enforced outgoing format.

    Didn't work. Before going to bugzilla, let's see if I have correctly undertood.

    We are using AD authentication and bellow is the error after making your suggested change:

    And the configuration os Authentication is:

    Authentication mechanism: External Active Directory
    LDAP bind DN template: %u@domain
    LDAP URL:: ldap://192.168.1.1:389



    I don't have peter.silva on AD, just peters.

    Zimbra does not try to use aliases to authenticate with AD.

    Right ?

    Yeah with AD seems my trick won't work unless AD can auth the user based on email address. Another bugzilla ticket

    Talking Sender Name <> Account Name (Update)

    Just and update:

    Using 4.0 RC1 and configuring as

    zimbraAuthLdapSearchBase: cn=users,dc=domain,dc=com
    zimbraAuthLdapSearchBindDn: cn=xxxxx,cn=users,dc=domain,dc=com
    zimbraAuthLdapSearchBindPassword: xxxx
    zimbraAuthLdapSearchFilter: (mail=%u@domain.com)
    zimbraAuthLdapURL: ldap://ad.domain.com:389

    worked fine.

    What we really need: the e-mail address of the sender can not be equal to the username that authenticate to the Active Directory.

    Sorry about my not so clear post.

    In Zimbra the user account name is now different from the username who logs in our Windows Network. The Zimbra user account was put in the e-mail field in AD.

    zimbraAuthLdapSearchBindDn/zimbraAuthLdapSearchBindPassword must be a user with rights to bind and search the AD.

    Any reason you can't just provision your Zimbra user names to match?

    Because they have spaces in it.

    I have the very same problem here, soon opening a case.
