Default horde/imp - multiple addresses single login

Dear all,

I set up a mail server some time ago and it works perfectly. the same goes for horde (my webmail client)The situation is this:
my users often have multiple email addresses hotmail gmail yahoo etc and of course @mydomain.com

I would like to offer them (preferably using horde as it's already there) the option to send and receive emails from their other accounts. Now I know you are going to tell me just enable it in the setup and they can choose it at login. That is precisely not what I had in mind.

I would like them to login with their email address (imp is authentication too) @mydomain.com and then see their mailboxes from gmail hotmail etc...

Thanks in advance
I hope this post is understandable

Horde/IMP has a fetchmail like system for fetchmail from external accounts and aggregate it into the horde system.

Thanks for your quick posting - Yes I know but I think I did not explain myself clear enough. I cannot answer people who send me a message to my gmail account with the @mydomain address. I want to answer them with @gmail.com.

The aim is to have a full mail client just as outlook ou thunderbird where the user can use every account he has just by logging in onto his account @mydomain.com.

It should have something to do with the identities.
The only problem for me there is that I cannot insert any server settings there.

It would be great if I could just add an identity to horde with the server pop and smtp. (tls or not etc)

You can do that with identities, but note that most of the mail could be rejected due to SPF/DKIM/Domain key verification systems.

is there really no way of "copying" the info asked for fetch mail + a text field for smtp server into the identities page to use external accounts for inbound as well as for outbound mail.

Another way i was thinking of is adding $conf[server][change_server] $conf[server][change_port] $conf[server][change_protocol] $conf[server][change_smtphost] $conf[server][change_smtpport] to the identities page.

another idea was adding multiple servers into servers.php for the smtp side of the thing and doing the rest with fetch mail but that does not look "professional" to me.

But would this work? If yes how do i implement it if no why not?

If anyone has any clue how to implement it i would like to try doing so even if i had to rewrite half of the imp module but just tell me how i have to start.

Thanks in advance
