    Default change the sender address to a user's alias of multiple users using cli

    howdy all

    we have recently migrated a stack of users to zimbra using external ldap auth
    and their "account name" is shortname@domain.com

    and we've added an alias to be full.name@domain.com to each user.

    Without having to open up each person's mail account in zweb, and manually go to preferences, accounts - to change their sender address from being the default shortname@domain.com to full.name@domain.com

    is there a way to update this using zmprov (if i pass a list of accounts to it)?

    cheers

    Default

    i think ive just answered my own question

    after creating an alias for the user with

    zmprov aaa user@domain.com user.name@domain.com

    i can then run
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefFromAddress user.name@domain.com

    and it changes their preferred from address, as if you had changed it from the accounts page in preferences

    if you set the pref address to something other than whats in their aliases, it will be discarded and the user@domain.com will still be used.
