    Default non-Zimbra (external) Users in the GAL

    We have a few external consultants that work closely with our staff but do not have email with us. Is it possible to have them in the GAL with out creating an account for them?

    Might be more work than it's worth, but you could set up some type of external LDAP directory and then configure the Zimbra GAL to use both internal and external.

    When we have this come up, we create a distribution list and subscribe the contractor's external email address to it. We name the distribution list in a way that fits our user IDs for actual accounts.

    Default External email addresses in GAL

    With our past solution, (Exchange), we put external email addresses in the system, not as mailbox, but just for shared master address book for important addresses of people not in our office. (e.g. vp@yahoo.com and othervp@sbcglobal.net).

    Any way to do something similar?

    txdistlcms, I'm moving/merging this into another very recent thread; so just visit your post history or any prior link (you'll also get 2 emails in a sec) and you'll be redirected to the discussion

    spamgl,
    yep I do the same & therefore end up with a bunch of distribution lists that way; but it would be nice to add all the contact info/phone #'s/addresses/pics in true contact spirit...
    So could you or soxfan scour bugzilla and make a new entry if needed? (it's not quite the same as Bug 14459 - Use internal GAL for sharing, external and internal for mail)

    Since nobody else filed it, I filed an RFE under bug 21879. Please add comments/votes if this is an issue you care about.

    UPDATE: Bug 21879 has been closed and merged with bug 14531. Visit the new bug if you wish to add comments or vote.
