Dispatch from another mail address

For certain purposes it is possible to send e-mails with a different e-mail address.

In order to be able to send from Outlook with another address, the delegation right "Send as" must first be granted by the desired address.

To do this, go to Settings -> Accounts -> Delegates with the desired e-mail address in the web client (see screenshot).

Please follow the steps below if you want to configure Outlook and have more than one email address.

In case you have an X.509 certificate for signing e-mails, please ensure that you use it only for the intended address. With the wrong address, a signed e-mail is seen as invalid by the recipient.

  • open Outlook,
  • choos the Zimbra tab and
  • then select "Persona" (green cross)
  • choose "Add..." in the opening dialog window.
  • choose an appropriate name, so you know later on which address is meant
  • in the box  "Persona Settings - your_new_name" type a name into the "From:" field.
  • choose the other e-mail address from the drop down box, press "OK" and restart Outlook afterwards.
  • if you are composing a new e-mail you now may click on the From-field and choose from which address you would like to send.
