Hello,

I am looking at email server alternatives.

The prime issue for my client is that they operate 2 different companies. Many people send email using 2 different email addresses.

Also, all email for both needs to be in the same inbox!

I am wondering if Mailserver can handles this? Is there a way with Outlook to deal with this?

What about webmail?

Are replies handled correctly? Meaning email received to user<_at_>companyb.com when replied to has the companyb.com email address, and vice versa.

Thanks.

Jay

mmm, shame no-one answered yet as I have a customer who I am trying to sell Kerio to as part of a major systems upgrade. They have the requirement for 3 domains, so it fits in with your original request.

Anyway, got to thinking how I could integrate Kerio in their environment (they are currently using Vpop3 with Outlook), just in case they sign on the dotted line.

Not sure whether I would be too concerned about primary and secondary domains as they would probably want to use a shared contacts list between the 3 domains.

Incoming email is via POP3. Using the download rules, all domain POP boxes can be interrogated and downloaded into specific user mailboxes. This is how you can get all the emails from all the domains into one Inbox for a user. I guess that as long as the user has all the relevant aliases set up for their email addresses, then incoming SMTP would work in the same way.

If you have all the aliases set up on a user account, then certainly within Webmail (haven't tried Outlook, yuck), you have the option of which email address you are sending the email as. Simply pick the right one from the pull-down list at the top of the new email window. This will then send the email as that address, thus allowing replies to be handled correctly etc.

I think that covers your original question. Pretty sure I could get it to work for my customer, so you should be able to do the same. Might be worth opening a support ticket just in case, to get the official Kerio support version of this. They might have a better/neater solution.

I have a primary mail domain with 7 domain aliases. I can receive email sent to <username><_at_><any_domain_alias>.

If I want to reply as <username><_at_><domain_alias>, I cannot in webmail, as it defaults to the primary domain, but Thunderbird handles this beautifully. I simply add an identity (Tools -> Account Settings -> Manage Identities -> Add) and then when composing I select the address that I want from the From list. If replying, t'bird automatically replies from the address that the original message was sent to.

When composing in Outlook, I display the From field and type in the address that I am replying from and it sends the email on behalf of the aliased user, otherwise it defaults to the primary.

Hope this helps,
Conn
