Hi Matthias,

your question is already some weeks old. I hope the answer is still
valuable for you.

this doesn't has to be like this. You can easily adjust the
recipient-policy in kolab.conf for e.g. using surname at or
firstname at

Just search for the topic recipient policy in documentation or mailing list.


primary_mail = %(surname)s@%(domain)s

Another way is to disable the recipient-policy and configure the
autogenerated fields for read-write. Then you can choose an
email-addresses other then the one from the recipient policy.

daemon_rcpt_policy = False
admin_auto_fields_rw = false

Adding someone as a delegation to the at means
this person is allowed to write with all aliases of this user. So if you
configure a identity in any email client you can either choose the
primary address or any alias.

Unfortunately I haven't found out how to achieve this also in
roundcubemail. I tried to configure this in and
kolab_auth.php - but without success.

Any Idea of somebody else?
