I can configure outgoing email servers (smtp) with my (admininstrator) email id and password for our company gmail account. But when another user try to send out the email, it uses the same gateway as mine. That means the receiving user see the emails of all users as coming from my email id (administrator).
How can other users send out the email with their email id in the "from" field?
In OpenERP version 7.0 always the mail gateway with the lowest sequence (highest priority) is used.
Although it is possible to specify a mail gateway for an email message (field
mail_server_id in object
mail.mail) this option is not used in the current version.
You can only add this functionality by writing a short module.
In my test environment I have a single outgoing email server, with no credentials. That way the outgoing email uses the "From" email address of the user who actually sends it. It's OK to do this from a security standpoint if the outgoing server is localhost (127.0.0.1), which would mean the SMTP server on the machine that OpenERP is running on. I'm using another valid approach, which is to configure the outgoing server as my domain's production server and and the OpenERP server's IP address to the mail server's list of allowed relay clients (for example, in 'mynetworks' in Postfix).
