    Default Zimbra Outlook Profile - can't change "From" address

    On a test machine, I've installed the outlook connector to zimbra, and it works just great. Our zimbra server is named zimbra.domain.com, so the account I have is username@zimbra.domain.com.

    However, there doesn't seem to be a way to change the From field, to just username@domain.com.

    The setup I'm trying to attempt, is this:

    1) forward all main from mail.domain.com to zimbra.domain.com via procmail
    2) through the web interface, create an identity to send as username@domain.com instead of username@zimbra.domain.com
    3) .. the above mentioned setting.

    Is this a limitation of MAPI? As I understand, the Outlook Connector lets Outlook talk MAPI to the Zimbra server, so I could see why it has to know username@zimbra.domain.com. But I wonder, is this just an unimplemented feature (to be able to alter the From field)?

    Default

    You can set up a new domain in the admin console named just domain.com

    And add your user to that domain. Then use the connector to connect to the new account.
