Email address primary / secondary, a mother innovation Zaclys:

On the zmail service you will have a single primary email address associated with your zaclys account, this is your "physical" email address for us ). 

Of course it is not aesthetics, as you can declare and join at any timeor amanysecondary email addresses from "my profile / mail": , etc ... and use these addresses either side mails to your contacts: all mail sent to these addresses automatically arrive in your mailbox only.

Double interest: you can change email address easily and add multiple email addresses (maiden name + marriage name, pseudo for our friends and proper name for your professional mails ...) without needing to open a new box Mail or reconfigure your messaging tools! (To reply on each mail with the correct address use the identity manager of your messaging tool).

    Réponse à moi-même : lu sur le forum que ce n'est pas possible avec le webmail mais que c'est dans la ToDo list.
    Merci !

  • by synaptic (Zaclynaute) - 22/09/2016 10:33

    Est-il possible de rediriger les mails dans des dossiers spécifiques ? J'utilise le webmail et je n'ai pas trouvé de filtres pour effectuer les réglages. Merci

  • by Guybrush (non connecté) - 02/08/2016 08:14


    - comme dit il faudrait essayer de faire le transfert depuis Thunderbird (je n'ai jamais eu de pb de transfert de bal avec TB en tout cas)

    - il est prévu chez Zaclys d'ajouter une fonction de transfert de bal directement sur le service mail (genre fetchmail) , on travaille en phase lab sur plusieurs améliorations du service mail dans le cadre d'un partenariat avec l'IFPO (cnrs)

    j'ai eu des soucis pour transférer certains emails de ma messagerie actuelle vers mon email Zaclys (via Apple Mai). Je n'ai pas trouvé de solutions, même avec l'aide de l'équipe de Zaclys. J'espère que cela sera résolu un jour, afin que je puisse basculer définitivement vers mon email Zaclys...

    Cependant il est possible de rediriger les mails de ton nom de domaine vers Zaclys et d'utiliser une "identité" avec ton nom de domaine pour écrire depuis Zaclys, c'est assez transparent au final !

  • by Bill (Zaclynaute) - 12/05/2016 15:36

    Probablement dans les mois qui viennent.

  • by lascapi (non connecté) - 12/05/2016 15:34

    Super ! Merci pour cette précision ! C'est un projet pour bientôt ? Un mois ? Un an ?

  • by Bill (Zaclynaute) - 12/05/2016 15:20

    Bonjour lascapi
    Ce n'est pour l'instant pas possible. Mais nous avons en projet les serveurs Mail dédiés, qui le permettront.

  • by lascapi (non connecté) - 11/05/2016 21:11

    Bonjour :-) Je voulais savoir s'il est possible d'avoir une adresse mail avec son nom de domaine ?

  • by Bill (Zaclynaute) - 26/03/2016 21:44
