    Outlook 2019 doesn't allow custom username for IMAP/SMTP account


    Most my users are using Thunderbird, but sometimes someone wants Outlook too.

    For my users, i am creating emails similar to this "john.smith@company.com" and all have usernames like "johnsmith". It is pretty practical, username can be same to more services, only password is different if needed. Why not?

    I am using LInux servers which provides IMAP and SMTP services, nothing unusual.

    In last Outlook 2019 i was very surprised it doesn't allow set custom username different from email address. I can choose advance settings, set email, password and both server names, TCP ports, SSL etc. That's all fine. But without possibility correct username every atempt of login fails.

    WHY? WHY Microsoft does not allow different username from email address?

    How i can do some workaround?

    Is there some good reason which i cannot see?

    :)
