"send as" on iOS/Android

I did some reasearch and found out that:
- activeSync doesn’t offer multiple sender addresses per account
- Exchange seems to allow delegated login via IMAP (my.username\delegated.username)
- iOS offers native support for Card/CalDAV, Android has DAVx5
Now one might have a user “Edgar Alan Poe” in a company “the-raven.com”. The user has the follwing addresses and same domain aliases, while the first one represents his default sender address:
I’ll call these adresses recieve aliases, as the are more of a recieve thing, and answering them or writing new mails as email@example.com is perfectly fine.
To accomplish this one could either just add the relevant addresses to the user and have a shared mailbox or add two shared users and grant “send as” and full folder permissions to the main account. For the webapp this works great, as one can add (in my case manually, but I heard of scripts existing) the addresses to the “From Addresses”. Mobile seems to be a whole other story.
Does anyone have an Idea how to accomplish this, what are the best practice workarounds? Does dovecot or kopano gateway for that means support deligated authenthication à la Exchange?
Z-Push has a feature that sound similar to the “delegated login” that you see on Exchange: https://wiki.z-hub.io/display/ZP/Impersonation
Apart from that you could simply configure your MTA for these logins (which then required simple SMTP authentication).
