OpenERP online Alias emails

I am using a trial of OpenERP online. When creating a user instead of 'login' being required as I have seen in some tutorials, an email address is required for the user. This becomes a problem when creating alias emails. When the user is created user1@company.com is entered (only accepts an email address) and in the general settings the alias domain is set to 'company.com' When sending out a message the recipient sees the email as sent from user1@company.com@company.com

What causes this to happen? documentation and tutorials I have found on setting up alias don't seem to match the same fields which i see during user creation/edit.

This is because on the SaaS version, OpenERP SA forces login to be the email address. On a standard OpenERP Server, there is 2 different fields for login and email.

To solve your problem :

  • go to Settings\Users\Users
  • Edit user1 and click on alias
  • Edit the alias and change it from user1@company.com to user1

That's all.

Where you click on alias, I can not find it.

In the tab "Contact", you have this alias attribute. The value is in blue meaning it is a clickable link. Click the link and edit the form that has just open.
