    Default Invisable Forward

    I'm just finishing migrating the last of my users from a Pegasus System to Zimbra.

    One feature they used was to send a lot of the emails to our receptionist, who looked through them and forwarded to the required departments. When she did this she used a feature that prevented her email address from being used as the from address. The people who then received the emails could use auto replies back to the originating sender, and also also reply without any problems.

    Now I can't find any facility for this in Zimbra (I know it could possibly be a security risk, but its usefulness out ways any concerns).

    Any ideas or suggestion on how to do this?

    I'm quite happy to create a Zimlet, but just not sure how to start.

    Check out Mail Identities. That may be what you are looking for.

    Not sure how mail identities help, unless the receptionist can set one that is blank.

    I need her to forward on email but not be the last person sending the email. So that replies go to the person who sent the original email and not (as it currently the case) her.

    Hi Cringer,

    I think you mean "forward as original" ?
    I also could not find this option in the web client.
    I often use this option if mail is send to the wrong address.

    Thanks Wim, that's exactly what I'm after. Just need to find a way to achieve this.

    I just migrated from Openwebmail to Zimbra and the "work around" I now use is connecting to Zimbra with Mozilla Thunderbird IMAP client and use the Thunderbird extension "mailredirect"

    I have had a look through the bug list, and can't find anything like this. So I have added BUG 15569.

    Thanks for the advice about Thunderbird , but I don't want to start muddying the waters here and introducing yet another email client (I had enough problems getting them to move over to Zimbra).
