We have a KMS server for We have an user checking up his emails through an iphone (using activesync) on his account: joe<_a.t_>

In his iphone, he configured the "e-mail address" to be: joe<_a.t_> because we want the mails sent by this user through our KMS activesync server to appear as joe<_a.t_> and not joe<_a.t_>

Problem is that every time he sends a mail, the "From:" field is automatically switched from "joe<_a.t_>" to "joe<_a.t_>". Is there any way to modify this behaviour in KMS so that Joe can use whatever "from:" email address he wants please?

Thanks a lot!

Log into Webmail, and under Setting -> Mail: Set the Default From address to the desired from address.

You will then get headers like this:

Return-Path: <account_main_id<_a.t_>>
From: User <address_set_in_webmail<_a.t_>>

Just tested on 6.6.0 7007

Other than that, I would file it as a Bug/ER to Kerio, so they can have a look at it.
But it could be the iPhone/ActiveSync agent not submitting it... ?
File it..

Update: This setting is propagated to your Open Directory, so if needed you could mass-update some users, if you know how..

I'm responding to this post to make sure that folks looking for a solution to the problem can find this post.

Setup: iPhone (currently v2.2) using ActiveSync to connect to a Kerio server (currently 6.6.2) as an Exchange client.

Problem: Even though the email address in the iPhone settings is set to use a different address from the username setting, received emails show the username (account) as the from address.

Solution: Use a browser to log into the account via the Kerio webmail interface. Click the Settings button and then the Mail tab. Change the Default From Address to the desired from address.
