We just migrated from exchange to zimbra over the weekend. So far things are going pretty good.
We are using the zimbra desktop application also, because our version of outlook is OLD.
We have one small issue.
Most of our users are setup the same way, except our accounting person.
We authenticate against active directory, and for the most part this is working fine.
Our users are setup with the email address email@example.com and user ID: user
HOWEVER, our accounting person was previously setup as user ID: user and her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
She also had email@example.com as an alias.
This worked without issue in exchange, but I cant figure out how to make this work in zimbra.
when I imported her account, it set it up with her username as the first part of her email address.
I tried going to her account details and changing the login info, but she couldn't authenticate after that.
Currently, she is setup backwards from how she was before (just to get her going for now)
she has the accountspayable address as an alias. She can get email from both addresses now, but we cant seem to send from the accountspayable address (much less make that the default reply address)
What am I missing here?
Is there not a way to send "from" an alias address?
Also, can you use a different email address from your username and still sync to active directory?
