    Default Domain Alias & Login Name

    Hi all !

    Is it possible to let users login with an email address on a domain alias, instead of the real email address ?

    When I first set-up Zimbra, we only had a .be domain name. Now we have a .eu and we only communicate with this address.
    I have set-up a domain alias for this domain on my old .be, but my users are very confused when it comes to login-name.
    No problem in the webmail interface since they don't have to enter the full email address, but they always misconfigure their thunderbird/outlook client to use the address in .eu instead of the address in .be for authentication.
    Is it possible to do some kind of "login alias" ?

    Thanks !

    Yes, if your users have an alias they can login with that. You'd need to create the alias for each account and/or change the default domain name.

    Yes, it works great ! Thanks a lot !

    The only problem is that I'll have to add aliases for all users now...
    Is there an easy way to migrate everything from my old domain to a new domain ?

    Do you mean the domain alias part ? That is what I already have.
    I was thinking about a complete transfer. Imagine that I lose my domain .be and only have the .eu domain left. Would ther be a way to easily change all my domain configuration from .be to .eu ?

    OK, but that's is not a real transfer, that is masquerading.
    I still have to set up an alias for all my users if I want them to log with the new domain name in their username, right ?
    My users' sent emails already appear to come from the correct domain, because they mostly use an external MTA which has the right configuration in "email address" and "reply to" field.
