diekuh Thanks for the answer. Of course that’s a way to solve the problem, but it’s not the way I want to use it. An alias is (in my opinion) a way to hide from the real address. The email headers seem fine while using an alias, only the used name seems to be the one defined in the mailbox. mailbox.org, for example, and other providers allow creating aliases that automatically use the alias name as a name, i.e.
It seems to be a SOGo issue as described here https://github.com/mailcow/mailcow-dockerized/issues/2997. I decided to create my real mailbox with <email@example.com> with a generic
secret name (so all aliases use this name) and change the
From field in SOGo to my real name
myname. The aliases still use the
secretname which is great, although others see this as an issue https://github.com/mailcow/mailcow-dockerized/issues/22. For me it’s a feature.
The nice thing: If I use Airmail (MacOS desktop client) and add an alias I created in Mailcow I can choose the name I want!
Would it be possible to add a feature to the mailcow dashboard to edit names per alias additionally the the default edit per mailbox or is this a completely SOGo-dependend feature?
