Bug Report/Feature Request: 'From:' stays empty when replying to email on personal inbox.
Bro last edited by Bro
I am new to kopano, so bear with me if you say or do anything stupid :)
When replying to an email from the inbox of the logged in user, the ‘From:’ field stays empty. Both in my installed version (WebApp 220.127.116.110+703.1) as the demo version at https://demo.kopano.com/webapp/ (WebApp 18.104.22.1688+36.1). When replying to an email from in a mailbox from a shared account, the ‘From:’ field is filled with the emailaddress of said account.
However, in our setup (one inbox shared by several users where fetchmail pulls in email for 15+ emailaddresses/webshops) we would like the ‘send as’ address to be the address the mail was originally send to (the ‘received_by’ address).
Am I overlooking something obvious, or is there a plugin providing this functionality that I missed?
PS As it happens, I spent the best part of this weekend hacking this feature in. The code is dirty (no js expert here) but functional and will do for now. If Anyone is interested in my solution, let me know
If you want to publish your changes, or even submit a patch (see https://stash.kopano.io/projects/KW/repos/kopano-webapp/browse/CONTRIBUTING.md) then other could maybe help improve it further.
In general when replying from your own store, the from line stays indeed empty, since it will just use the default email of the store.

Thanks for the reply Felix!
I figured it may be the intended default behaviour (since the ‘From:’ is not visible either by default), but it confused me a bit.
As for contributing: I’d happily send my code, although I am quite sure the code quality is not up to par to be included in the codebase. Moreso, it breaks the above mentioned default behaviour (as it will always set the “send as” address as the address the mail was orinally sent to).
Kind regards, Bro
breaks the above mentioned default behaviour
just add a config switch around it and be happy? ;-)

Fair enough. I will make some time to figure out how to add a config switch soon, it sounds easier said than done :)
Let me know if you need help with a poc patch, then I’ll have some of our developers take a look over it.
