Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I checked the trunk version serveral months ago, and as far as I remember, the messages I sent out by Odoo had my name as sender, but with the smtp address I configured for outgoing mail. Also the reply to was set to firstname.lastname@example.org .
I just wanted to ask, if I miss some setting, if I'ts a bug or intended by design, that I always send the message with my "real" (<username>email@example.com) instead of (<username>firstname.lastname@example.org) address.
In theory, the system isn't even capable of sending the messages with the user's personal mail address, since only one common smtp is configured.
Also, when sombody answers to that address it will obviously land in the users postbox, not in the catchall postbox odoo is polling.
Any ideas on that?
Go to Settings -> Technical -> Parameters -> System Parameters. Select the checkbox beside "mail.catchall.alias" and then More -> Delete. Then the senders email will be used as the reply-to address.

thanks for the infos GREAT :-)
how can you achive to have when you send something from project that the reply address is as it was in former version project+projectname .... or is this obsolete with the new method how odoo wants to handle email ?
i already tried to add a alias address for projecttasks for example, but when i send out the email now the reply-to is the users email address it doesnt matter where i send it from
before it was used in the way depending on if a task or a issue was connected to a project the reply-to address was different ....
Maybe there is a description already HOW email workflow should be used in a good way.
