Is there any way to change an existing primary email address for a mailbox without having to delete the entire mailbox and start again?
I am aware that you can simply add an alias, but I want to now change the primary alias or at least set the default “Send From” email for the account.
original primary: [email protected]
aliases: alias1, alias2, alias3
new primary [email protected]
aliases: mail1, alias1, alias3
I don’t think it is currently a feature in Hestia to move it…
Delete from [email protected] all the mail alias
Create the new user with [email protected]
Login with ssh as root
And mv maill1 to alias2
And it should work
Create backup first
Other method but slower is to use imapsync
Being able to move the mailbox is exactly what I needed after re-creating the alias!
I know it’s a rough workaround but you have saved me a lot of work!
Thank you and I hope there will be an integrated solution in future from the cp.
I would love to see imapsync integrated.
