    Default Multiple email addresses for a single user

    I am looking at moving to Open-Xchange. My current setup is postfix, dovecot, fetchmail, procmail + dovecot delliver. We use Outlook Express or Thunderbird for our email client. I'm trialing moving from this to Open-Xchange and have it up and running.

    We have many email addresses and I can't work out how to set up a user account in OX which can pick from a list of email addresses when composing an email. Is this possible? I see that the "From" address in the compose email window is a drop-down list but I can't see where to add other email addresses to populate that list.

    Regards,
    Phill

    Hi Phil,

    this is possible with the --aliases switch at the change/createuser command. All comma separated E-Mail addresses will be available as sender address. Please note that this may heavily depend on your E-Mail backend, OX just tries to send an E-Mail with the specified sender, there is no guarantee that the SMTP server will accept it.

    Thanks Martin, this worked a treat! For the record I deleted the account I'd created and recreated it as follows:

    Code:
    $ /opt/open-xchange/sbin/createuser -c 1 -A AdminUsernameGoesHere \
     -P AdminPasswordGoesHere -u myuser -d "My User" -g My -s User \
    -p myuserpassword -e myuser@domain1.com.au \
    --aliases \
    myuser@domain1.com.au,myuser@otherdomain.com.au,myuser@yetanotherone.com \
     --imaplogin myuser --imapserver 127.0.0.1 --smtpserver 127.0.0.1

    Hi,

    just to mention, you don't need to remove accounts to modify them, just use changeuser and modify the attributes you want to add or remove.

    Greetings
