    Manage multiple accounts in Zimbra

    Hi All,
    I think I am getting close to binning our current LA provided email for Zimbra.

    However I am having problems managing the accounts as follows.

    I want to stop students seeing the staff email accounts in the GAL, I can do this by editing a single account and then unticking the "Global address list" box in the features tab. I cannot see how I can do this for a group of users at once. I'd hate to have to do this to each student account as it would take a looooong time.

    Can anyone suggest how I can get round this?

    Thanks

    here we encourage student-teacher electronic comms, but a search of the Zimbra forums suggests setting up a different COS for staff and students and manipulating the default COS settings:

    How to Hide the Global Address List - Zimbra - Forums

    mprov mc [cosName] [zimbraAttribute] FALSE

    Revelant [zimbraAttribute] values:
    zimbraFeatureGalAutoCompleteEnabled
    zimbraFeatureGalEnabled
    zimbraPrefGalAutoCompleteEnabled
    zimbraPrefGalSearchEnabled

    If you haven't configured additional COS's put 'default' inplace of [cosName].

    Thus you could have a COS for 'employees' that still can search the GAL, while 'members' COS wouldn't be able to.

    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/announc...html#post62754 so we know what version you're running (as there was a bug with showing an access error like that when clicking to: with the GAL disabled etc.)

    Just for future info:
    On individual domains, by default zimbraGalInternalSearchBase & zimbraGalSyncInternalSearchBase are set to DOMAIN. So if you're using multiple domains and still want to leave the GAL enabled, people can only search within their domain. (You can let a domain look across all domains for the GAL by setting that to ROOT. Or lookup in domain and sub.domains by setting that to SUBDOMAINS. If you're using external LDAP/AD auth that's zimbraGalLdapSearchBase & zimbraGalSyncLdapSearchBase.)
