    Default Cannot add alias for any address

    Hello,

    Just installes Zimbra 6.01 x86_64. It's a clean install with mailboxes imported from a previous Zimbra 5.x install

    In this new setup, I cannot add any alias:

    Code:
    zmprov gac -v | grep zimbraAllowAnyFromAddress
    zimbraAllowAnyFromAddress: TRUE
    Code:
    zmprov aaa account@domain.tld account@otherdomain.tld
    ERROR: service.PERM_DENIED (permission denied: no such domain: otherdomain.tld)

    zimbraAllowAnyFromAddress allows people to specify a persona that has any address as the from address. This has nothing at all to do with aliases.

    An alias is an alternative address that the user can also recieve mail for. To specify an alias of account@otherdomain.tld your Zimbra server would need to be told that it can handle addresses ending in otherdomain.tld. (Aliases also allow the user to specify that address as a from address, regardless of the setting of zimbraAllowAnyFromAddress).

    The answer is in that error message, you need to create an additional domain called 'otherdomain.tld' before you can add an alias for it.
