Summary0000768: Add multiple Identity to Imap Account
DescriptionGreat feature new multi-account feature, i want to use it like identity in Thunderbird (with a dummy account)
It works but:
* i can't choose second sender if i'm on first account folders
* sent mails are not saved in sent folder

I suggest to add multiple identity associated to account, with only Full Name and Email and signature fields

I see this on UI/PReferencesUI/...Localizable.strings

/* Identities */
"Default identity:" = "Identità principale:";
"Manage identities..." = "Gestisci identità...";

What it means?

That would be really appreciated! :-)

Is so hard to code? Can I help?

I really miss this feature.

Many of my customers are using many different e-mail addresses for the different functions they have, but they have all mail in one imap account.

I would like something where the customer can configure the identities of an IMAP account themself. So storing them LDAP is not an good idea.

I have a customer who needs to run as multiple, selectable/switchable user@domainname from addresses based on the company e-mail they represent. They can do this under Thunderbird and the like but can't see if and how to turn this on in SOGo.

They tend to use their single Inbox in Linux which receives all of their "user@*" e-mail so being able to send back from the different domains would be great.

I have implemented:


and this works great to change the sending e-mail address for some users but given their users handles stuff from multiple domains, this only fixes some user requirements.

Reply to the message should check email address from "To" field in received message, in order to automatically set correct email address in "From" field using the proper Identity, if email address from "To" field is recognized. Instead of that, email address in "From" field is always set to default email address.

Full Name, Email, Reply To Email and Signature should be configured per Identity, and not as IMAP Accounts parameters.

It would be nice if Vacation can be also be configured per Identity.

This would also be rather useful for calendar invitations. People inviting richard.hartmann@ make SOGo tell me the invite is not for me as I am using rih@ internally.

I join the crowd :) Using MailFieldNames is really complicated to setup and not enough flexible. Users often have no access to their mail account setup (created in LDAP or in db, by admins), so filling mail1, mail2,... isn't a simple procedure :(
The link with the correct alias in from: field when replying a mail is required at the same level.
Please give us some hope about a such feature ?

[EDIT] Additionally, the extra feature enabling multiple signatures for multiple aliases will be the Grail.

A customer is looking into sponsoring this feature. We'll know soon.

Not having this "identities management" is why I keep using Roundcube and do not switch to SOGo (both provided by Gandi)

Ludovic, how can we help to sponsoring this feature ?

Same, I would be also interested in that feature.

I opened a request on this ages ago asking if a user can simply select username@domain1, username@domain2 etc when compiling an e-mail based on domains actually set in SOGo. I recall very early in the piece, before possibly an overnight update removed it, that I could actually select from two domain sender 'aliases' I had here, but seems to have gone now?
The only answer I got back some time ago was to set up multiple domains in ldap but the issue is the server(s) installed are using MySQL and I have no idea how to code that :-( (plus the ldap config on CentOS never follows the base setup and works.... it is very simple to set up but on CentOS 6 is buggy).
My main customer wants to stay with SOGo so I have to stay with supporting it and is still the main issue they prod me about every so often.
Maybe if I can get ldap to work I can migrate them and try it but what gets broken if I leave MySQL? It should not be this hard to simply be able to select multiple aliased sending addresses - and as I said, I had it working for two domains (same username) way back in the GNUstepDefaults setup days - will dig around and see if I can find ye olde config and update you if it works.

RoundCube gives you an 'identities' section where the logged in user can add any number of e-mail IDs to send from, so is what I am after exactly.
So just like Thunderbird, the only way to do this possibly is to add additional accounts for IMAP in the Preferences area, but I don't want different IMAP accounts under the one interface, just the ability to change the sender address when composing.
To date and years on, it does not look like it is possible or going to be implemented?
What I 'can' do is install the latest Roundcube for the customer and then have them use the CardDAV bit to sync address books with SOGo.... but is then two separate bits of software and they love the SOGo e-mail web interface.

If all you're after is multiple email addresses per user, not true identities, you have the following SOGo configfile options:
1. One additional user-defined address: SOGoMailCustomFromEnabled
2. Multiple database-defined addresses: MailFieldNames: Let's you define a list of database columns with space separated lists of email addresses in each column.

Here's another vote for this feature - would be much appreciated

@davrom: regarding Thunderbird: there you have this identities feature too, additional IMAP accounts are possible but not necessary

I up-vote also this, would be a killer feature for multi-accounts use. I created my account only to upvote this request!
