Hello all,

I'm running Kerio Connect 7.4.3 build 7813, and we have one email domain (with many aliases), linked to one Active Directory domain.

Another company is joining a ranks, and since their users weren't already using Active Directory, we created their accounts in our AD domain.

Here's the issue: we want them to be able to keep their old email address's domain (the user name isn't important).

I've looked through the documentation, looking for ways to set a default email address domain other than the primary domain, tried adding a separate email domain, and linking it to the existing Active Directory domain, but Kerio doesn't seem to differentiate between the two -- I get roughly the same list of users.

To repeat: I'm looking for way to set the user's default email address domain component, server-side to one of the domain aliases.

Obviously, we can change that some of the time in various email clients, on different devices, but not everywhere. Is there a solution at the source, right in the user's account configuration?

Thanks for any ideas,
Paul

If you are mapping from one AD domain to two e-mail domains, of course you will get exactly the same users in both e-mail domains. What you should have done was create specific Organizational Unit (OU) on your AD and map only this OU in Kerio:
http://kb.kerio.com/290

But you are right that default 'From:' address is fully controlled by client, not server. So it is just matter of login name to Kerio.

Well, that's perfect, because they are in a separate OU; that link is exactly what I needed, thank you so much.

Sometimes, however, we can't control the client. I've been doing some testing, and I've found that the Kerio Active Directory user account attribute « kerio-Mail-Preferred-Address » gets me very, very close to what I'm looking for. However, if I can get to it from the server, that's even better. Thanks again.

Well, after a superficial try, the instructions linked to above don't work: though Kerio does report the correct number of users in the the specified Active Directory OU, it appends the name of the OU to the Kerberos 5 domain name, prepends it to the Active Directory domain name (where I select that the Active Directory domain name is different than the email domain name) and to the user name used to authenticate in the domain. If I correct the changes in the Administration interface, I lose my custom LDAP mapping in the config file ("mailserver.cfg").

I'll try tomorrow to see if it's me not following step 1 correctly, "Configure Active Directory mapping according to our manual".
