Bugzilla – Bug 185
Provide aliases list
Last modified: 2016-04-28 17:19:31 CEST
According the ActiveSync technical documentation, it seems it's possible to provide the list of accounts the user is allowed to use.
My e-mail client (Nine for Android) is able to list these accounts but it doesn't receive them since ZxMobile doesn't provide them.
Would it be possible for ZxMobile to provide the list of accounts (ie. aliases) configured for the user so that we can choose which sender to use ?
Can you link the documentation you are referring to?
Since zextras 2.2.0 the server is sending all aliases of the account during initial synchronization phase, so the client _could_ support multiple account if it wanted, the question is, how nine read which accounts are available?
The doc is the MS AS tech doc MS-ASCMD.pdf (http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/D/D/5DD33FDF-91F5-496D-9884-0A0B0EE698BB/Exchange_Protocols.zip)
According this doc, several <EmailAddresses> tags can be set under the <Account> tag.
However, Zextras only sets one <EmailAddresses>. I did a simple test :
1. Create a new account firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Create an alias to this account : email@example.com
3. Setup the account on mobile phone
The Zextras debug log shows the alias is not provided to the phone :
Mobile Request :
Zextras response :
In the Zextras response, there is no firstname.lastname@example.org
You are right, nothing is returned for simple aliases when it should, most likely this bug will be fixed in release 2.2.3
Fixed in ZeXtras Suite 2.2.3
Reopened for further investigations after Kallisti's report:
"Wrong domain" bug fixed in ZeXtras Suite 2.2.4.
Further improvements to this feature have been added as well - now both aliases and addresses for which the "send as" right has been granted are properly shown.
This is a notable improvement, I don't see any updates in the wiki pages though to point out this very nice feature. Do we need to state clients that will support this? Is it just Nine?
Also, is the next step to provide 'persona' support? That has been asked about in various channels many times.
