    I have set up an email alias and set the option "Allow target to send mail using this alias as origin".

    For my understanding this means that I can send mails with this address as sender address. Have I understood this correctly?

    If so, how do I have to configure the mail client so that this happens? If I want to authenticate myself at the ispconfig-mailserver with the alias address and the destination mailbox password, this does not work.

    Which login data do I have to use to be able to send mails in the alias name?

    Thanks for your answers!

    You must use the email address of the mailbox, not the one of the alias, for authentication.

    Thanks for this quick and useful hint.
    But if i do so as you mean: Thunderbird means that this credentials are already used by an existing mailbox.
    Ok - so I have to use two mailuseragents.

    No, you have to add this as an alias address in Thunderbird too, and not as a separate mailbox. In german Thunderbird translation, its called "Weitere Identitäten". Thunderbird then uses the same smtp out settings for this alias then automatically.
    ahrasis and muelli75 like this.
