    Default Display aliases in gal

    We have a customer, which is using ZCS 6.0.8 pro, and I have a couple of questions about it.
    Customer would like to see aliases displayed in gal and they would like to send meeting requests from outlook using an alias. Is there a way to achieve this two things?

    If you edit an alias in the Admin Console, there's an option to "hide in GAL". Is it checked or not checked?

    About sending requests from an alias, you will probably need to use a persona.

    its unchecked. Aliases are shown in gal in web ui but not in outlook

    personas are set, but an appointment send from outlook is always from the main account.

    Apologies, it looks like the "hide in GAL" option is actually a property of the underlying object that the alias points to, not of the alias itself.

    if you search bugzilla for "alias" with component set to ZCO, you'll find a bunch of bugs, most of them fixed, related to alias behavior with ZCO. It's not immediately clear what the behavior currently is by design.

    Due to problems caused by aliases (particularly with CalDAV clients), we rarely use them. Instead, we create single-user distribution lists, which give us more control over display, etc. I'm not sure it'll help but it might be a solution.

    Thank you!

    Single user distribution lists solve the first part. But the customer still cant send an appointment invitation from any other than main email.

    As far as I can tell, you're right--personas are only available in Outlook for sending mail, not for sending invitations.

    They ARE available in ZWC when sending invitations.

    I just opened an RFE for this: http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=58310
