    Default

    Basically I would like to setup the Zimbra server as a collaboration suite, but not use it as a mail server for sending outbound mail. I want to use our existing external accounts for exchanging e-mails, but have the added functionality of everything else that comes with Zimbra. I understand that the Zimbra accounts need to be there, I just want an option so that when you create a new e-mail message you can set whatever account you want as the default.

    It's very similar to what is being done for using the same account for forwarding/replying to messages as the message was sent to.

    Default Not so difficult but confusing

    You can in fact override the default sending address displayed. I use my default domain user@default.com, collect their email via pop3 and then they use the zimbra account.

    You'll kick yourself. Yes, fill in the reply too and tick it but it still doesn't override default, however, if you type the users email overtop of the from field user@default.com can be replaced with user@theirdomain.com.

    Save and go.

    Default

    chimaster: Not sure how that works for this issue. Can you explain a bit more...

    has anyone figured out how to set an external account as the default one when composing/replying etc.

    thanks

    Default

    rawbytes: I setup my account like chirmaster said. It just makes it so that if people reply to that e-mail it gets sent to my other account. It's not exactly what i want, but it works for now. I'm not sure why it is so hard for admins on the forums to understand what I want. I don't think it's crazy to want a different account as my primary when sending new messages.

    As I said before... this capability just doesn't exist currently. See my last post for a link to bugzilla to file a RFE for this feature if you think it should be in a default Zimbra install.
