Need Help Changing Users Login Type

Post by fwolferd » Wed May 11, 2005 3:26 am

Does anyone know where I can change the login name from "username" to force the users to use "username@domain.com". The only reason I ask is to help me migrate from squirrel mail to webmail with out having to ask the end users to change their login. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Users are forced to use username@post office name if you name your post offices as the domain name then username@domain name will work.

The default post office as defined at ME Admin MMC->localhost properties is the only one that will work with username only and will also be fine with the username@post office.

Hi,

When authenticating in Mailenable you need to use "mailboxname@postofficename" and not "mailboxname@domainname".

It is not possible to change the username for a mailbox once it has been created in the MMC unless you use a utility called "Rename Mailbox" which has been specifically designed to do this. You can find the utility from this location:

Creating Post Offices is a rudamentary thing for the configuration of MailEnable I suggest you check the quick start guide for details on the creation of these and how the post office Vs domain setup works.

Here is a link to this guide;

So is it possible to have mult. domains in one post offce and use the following as the login for the same mailbox.

Example of what the user would use as a LOGIN for webmail or POP3:

Username: jdoe@domain1.com

and use

Username: jdoe@domain2.com

and both accounts point to the same mailbox in the same post office.

No to enforce your logins as different domain logins in this case you will need to create a new post office for each domain.

Remembering that each login is mailbox@post.office.name
