I’ve asked this a couple of times in the telegram chat, but no response.
I’m moving from a regular non-virtualized mail server where the users are local. Currently mail clients login with something like “greg” not “email@example.com”
We will/have migrate all the user accounts with the same names and passwords. Now we’d like to switch mail servers without having to visit every mail client install and switch the login from “greg” to “firstname.lastname@example.org” on the day of switch-over. (We will change those installs over time, since obviously, having the email@example.com format is “better” - especially if you might have more than a single domain running on MC.)
But in the interim, I need a solution.
I’ve tried this, and it appears to work, but I’m not sure if there’s some hidden problem with doing this that will come back to bite me.
In the dockerized container - in data/conf/dovecot/
create a file called extra.conf
In that file, add this following line:
auth_default_realm = the-domain-you-want-to-default-to.com
Now you can login as “greg” and it should login as firstname.lastname@example.org
So, again, is there some hidden problem I’ll run into with this work-around?
