If you are an admin, and in need of requiring your users to authenticate using their full email address, this article may be of interest.

Keep in mind this article is for those using Zimbra internal authentication.

Typically, users authenticate using...
Their username


Their email address

Setup by example

zmprov md zimbraAuthLdapSearchBase ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
zmprov md zimbraAuthLdapSearchBindDn uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra
zmprov md zimbraAuthLdapSearchBindPassword V8K7uBNXZ       <<== run zmlocalconfig -s zimbra_ldap_password to get your password
zmprov md zimbraAuthLdapSearchFilter '(&(mail=%u@%d)(objectclass=zimbraAccount))'
zmprov md zimbraAuthLdapURL ldap://
zmprov md zimbraAuthMech ldap

Basically, you are changing authentication from internal to external; however, the authentication directory server is zimbra internal.
