    The way most of us do this is to turn on pop/IMAP access in the mailbox,
    set up a dummy account for that sending address, and then use it to send.

    When you create the pop account in the GroupWise mailbox, make the incoming
    server something invalid, or the incoming password invalid, so that you are
    not actually downloading your email again. For the sending server you use
    your internal GWIA. Then, when composing the message you will see the
    available addresses on the "from" Drop down.

  • Hi!

    We had this running exactly like Danita pointed out for quite some time.

    However there are a few things which do not work in such a situation.

    The most important one is you cannot always use the pop/imap (as it is used
    only for sending it is more of a smtp) accounts. e.g. rules, webmail, ...
    The client rewrites your 'other' domain addresses to your main/default
    address (REALLY BAD ONE, although Novell was quite helpful and has provided
    a partial workaround where the Windows client skips this 'feature' for
    SMTP-sends), etc.

    We are now using multiple accounts and the proxy feature for many users. A
    nightmare to setup (but pop/imap wasn't fun either) but you get the full
    feature set - at the 'cost' (is it really a disadvantage?) of a single
    inbox.

    I ask Novell for years to implement true multi-domain capable accounts
    (including reply-to support) - so far without success.

    Maybe on more voice on www.novell.com/enhancement for improvement...

    I did...

    Many users Receive emails to their Account for MORE than One Domain.

    Proxy is only option but messy as users need to Proxy into an additional mailbox.

    ** Multi-Domain SEND FROM and REPLY FROM **

    Users need to be able to SEND-FROM multiple domains they also need to be able to REPLY-FROM but they can't select an account to REPLY-FROM.

    POP3 accounts work but users get a Connection failed for dummy incoming server.

    Webaccess has no support for SEND-FROM

    --------------

    Simply allowing disable INCOMING part of the account would simply
    ie. SEND only Tickbox...

    Better Still SMTP Send only account type.

    Obviously need to also allow user to REPLY-FROM a selected account.

    --------------

    Better user experience

    Proxy is very messy as users may have access to colleagues accounts.

    Being able to SEND-FROM and REPLY-FROM seems a more natural option.

    For Novell - yet another Benefit rather than limitation of GW
