No user mailaddress when using "user_external"

Postby sirhc4022 » Sat Jul 09, 2016 11:38 pm

Hey guys,

I was switching back from OC9 to OC8.2 because of webDAV-issues. How ever; I am authenticating my users against an IMAP-server. No problems so far. But, in OC9 the users were able to change their e-mail-address in their profile. In OC9 their are not able to change their mail-address. Does anyone know why? In this moment the users will not be able to share anything because they can't add an email-address and the e-mail-address delivered by IMAP is added in user's profile as username.
(In OC9 the e-mail-address was added as username and user e-mail).

Server configuration
Operating system: Ubuntu Server (Shared Host)
Web server: CGI/FPM
Database: MySQL
PHP version: 5.6
ownCloud version (see ownCloud admin page): 8.2
Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install: fresh

Special configuration (external storage, external authentication, reverse proxy, server-side-encryption):
external authentication with users_external app against an IMAP server.

Thanks in advance.
