    Default question about multiple identities in ZCS4.5RC1

    I installed debian ZCS4.5RC1 onto a sarge VM to explore its capabilities
    versus exchange. Default install - everything on one server. It all works
    great, and I'm really impressed with the feature set so far.

    One feature we need however is the ability to send from multiple domains.
    This almost works, but the e-mail always says it comes from "default.com"
    which is the default domain I used during install. My setup follows:

    In admin I created two additional domains, for a total of three:

    default.com
    second.com
    third.com

    Then, I added second.com and third.com to the Virtual Hosts list for default.com.

    Then, I create a test user under the default domain, and added two aliases
    for that user to get:

    user@default.com
    user@second.com
    user@third.com

    Then, I login as user@default.com, and click on options, and create two
    new identities in addition to the default one. Call them second.com, and
    third.com. In these identities, under the "When I send a message wtih
    this identity" settings, I can only pick "user@default.com" from the drop
    down list. If I manually set the "reply-to" info, replies go correctly, but
    the message still appears to be from "user@default.com" rather than
    "user@second.com" or "user@third.com". Is this a bug, or do I have to
    create additional servers in addition to additional domains in the admin
    tool? And if so, how do I do that - and what is the point of having virtual
    hosts?

    Thanks --B

    Default

    never mind - running the following fixed it:

    zmprov createServer second.com
    zmprov createServer thrid.com

    After those commands, you can pick the proper domain under mail
    identities and it works as expected. Off to explore Asterisk integration
    now! --B

    P.S. This still begs the question, what good is the VirtualHost stuff in
    the admin setup?

    The VirtualHost stuff is just to allow users to log on the webUI without using their "full" account.

    If you create first.com and second.com as domain while your zimbra server FQDN is zimbra.mydomain.com...
    And users are userxxx@first.com and useryyy@second.com...
    They'll have to go to http(s)://zimbra.mydomain.com and enter their full account name to get proper log on (userxxx@first.com or useryyy@second.com).

    But if you put the correct record in the DNS, such as zimbra.second.com pointing to zimbra.mydomain.com and you add zimbra.second.com as a "VirtualHost" to second.com domain, users will be able to go to http(s)://zimbra.second.com and log on with only useryyy as user name (no need to useryyy@second.com).
