I use Zimbra. You can install on the same server as openerp, but I would not. I would just have a server with multiple virtual machines. If you need help, please let me know.

I have a specific question since we are settting up Openerp for live system and need the email to work properly. I did notice that OpenERP uses the domain openerp.my.openerp.com when they are send quotes to me, such as : ""Germana Freitas (gfr)" gfr@openerp.my.openerp.com" is that the alias domian? Because when she emails me directly she sends it from: "Germana Freitas gfr@openerp.com" We use zimbra as our local mail server and I can do whatever is needed.

So what is the setup? On the user side is her email: gfr@openerp.com and the alias gfr@openerp.my.openerp.com? The popup note on the company setting alias domian says "If you have a catch-all domain redirected to the OPENerp Server, enter the domian name here."

So I am creating mx records for the alias domain? Also It has been noted that you cannot have mail turned on for a user with the same email and alias email which would cause an infinite loop, which is correct. So do you have every user have an incoming mail server with a different login? or sales1@hriscoffee.com logs in and sends and receives mail for openerp?

If you assume that a company has total control of the domains, servers, etc... What is the best practices for setting up the mail? TX, ER
