New to nethserver - Set different from email address for one user


(John Savidge) #1

NethServer Version: 7.5
Module: email


I’m very new to nethserver but an experienced IT admin.

I’d like to use nethserver to host my family email and replace an ancient SBS server.

I host several email domains for them which can be delt with using alisas, but one user will need to reply to emails using a from email address that is different to the defaul email domain.

default domain =
alternate domain

How can I make this work for this one user on my mailbox config?

Thanks in advance

In the Apple world it seems to be called aliases:
