I’ve installed Webtop 5 and I’m testing out how I can use use email from nethserver to replace our ClearOS server (Zarafa). Here is what I have on our current mail server:
We use two generic accounts (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org). Both these accounts are manned by people (bookkeeper and secretary respectively) and both these accounts have delegates assigned to them so both our company owners have access to these mail accounts (as well as their own).
Currently we don’t use the same domain login for our computers as our email accounts. So it was easy in ClearOS to setup an email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and give them access to mail. Now I want to add into the mix the ability for these generic accounts to exist and to give our employees domain accounts for login.
- Our bookkeeper will be given a domain account to login to their computer…but our bookkeeper will never need their own personal email account as all their mail goes through email@example.com. How do I setup a personal domain login account and give them only this firstname.lastname@example.org account for their mail?
- Similar for our secretary. I will be giving her a domain login account but she will never need to have her own personal email account. All her mail correspondence goes through email@example.com. Similar question…how do I setup a personal domain login account for our secretary, remove her personal email account and make the firstname.lastname@example.org her only email account?
Let’s give an example of what I’m doing. Let’s say our secretary is named Mary Jane. She looks after our email@example.com email account.
Do I create two user accounts in nethserver?:
Mary really doesn’t need to have her own email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) as she will never send or receive email from that account. How do I make the email@example.com email account attached or owned to Mary’s domain account?
Hopefully I’ve given enough detail to you all. Thank you in advance for any direction you can provide me.
