Hi

One of our developers has asked if its possible to have login aliases for sharepoint login through TMG, basicaly he wants users to be able to use there company email addresss as login name, even if the account is hosted in our active directory.

example:
Alias: Bob@company.com
AD: Bob@sharepoint.com

Cheers

Use claims based authentication.  Then setup Forms with AD to use email address

How do you tell FBA what the alias is and which account it actually links to.
