multicompany = multi email domain ?

Hello Everybody,

I'm having the same problem in several multicompany setups.

Suppose 2 companies in 1 database, one called green, the other red with both their own domain, @green.com and @red.com.

Subdomains in openerp are :

openerp.green.com openerp.red.com

When I send mails from openerp, I want in the first company to send my pdf (eg. quote, sales order, invoice) from my <username>@openerp.green.com and in the second company it should be <username>@openerp.red.com. I should also be able to receive answers back in the system.

In the openerp settings (general) it's only possible to use one subdomain alias, so the whole system is quite useless in such a mc setup.

Do I miss something, or does somebody have a sort of solution already ?

Maybe this not answer you question but maybe can resolve this problem.

I guess does not exists yet anyway to the mail module handle this setup yet. I think one workaround for what you want to archive is to use only one domain for your openerp instance with multi-company, do the follow:

  • Create a normal OpenERP instance like openerp.domain.com
  • And create email alias from mailalias@green.com -> user@openerp.domain.com,
  • And so on…

This way you could receive emails into user or group you want to receive email from specific email address.
