Hi,

I've just collapsed about 800 accounts into 80 on our Kerio server through a combination of simply deleting unused stuff as well as using a bunch of aliases where appropriate.

One of the things that I would like to do is be able to reply with an alias when an email is sent to an alias. Let me give a fictitious example.

There's an account set up as:
neil<_a.t_>mymail.com

I've set up aliases of:
marketing<_a.t_>mymail.com
shows<_a.t_>mymail.com
advertising<_a.t_>mymail.com

all of which point their mail to neil<_a.t_>mymail.com

When someone writes in an email to marketing<_a.t_>mymail.com, that message obviously goes to the neil<_a.t_>mymail.com account. But, when I reply, I would like to reply with NOT the neil account, but the marketing<_a.t_>mymail.com account.

I can easily setup a new "personality" in my email client that would do this (e.g., send on neil<_a.t_> with a reply-to of marketing<_a.t_>), but the problem is that when it does it, it will also reply to the marketing<_a.t_> (e.g., the sender and marketing<_a.t_>mymail.com are both in the "to" of the reply).

Since this works the same on all email clients that I've tried so far, I have to imagine that if there is a solution, it's on the server side.

Any ideas on a better way to do this?

Thanks!

Neil

Hi,

Using Apple's Mail.app, you can add all the users emails in the account settings:

The 'Email address' field can contain multiple adresses like:

account<_a.t_>domain, alias1<_a.t_>domain, alias2<_a.t_>domain

The the user can choose what account to send from, and it will also reply from that address when you get mail in on one of them.

I'm not sure how that works in other clients...

Hope it helps!

In that case, I would not use aliases, but add those addresses to that user (Edit > Mail Addresses Tab > Add...)

You can then chose the From address when sending the mail via Webmail. And you will find similar functionality in the different mail clients.
