    Default [SOLVED] Using 'zmprov' to Add Forwarding Address to User Account

    Is there any way to use 'zmprov' to add a forwarding address to a user's account during the creation of the account? I have several users I am migrating from iPlanet to Zimbra who prefer not to use their local account and instead forward to their Hotmail or AOL accounts. I suspect that adding an alias won't work since the Zimbra Console has a separate location for a forwarding address vs. an alias. Any suggestions (and please no mention of Dist lists because I am speaking of specific users and not lists)?

    A quick search of the forums would have found you this or this in the wiki.

    Oh look, not even a mention of a Distribution List.

    Default Thanks!

    Exactly what I was looking for. Odd that it didn't come up when I searched for Forwarding and zmprov on the forum last week...

    We have special forum software, the moment you search for a topic - it hides the results you want.

    you can tweak multivalued attributes with +/- (note the "--" before the "-zimbraMailForwardingAddress"):

    zmprov ma a@example.com +zimbraMailForwardingAddress x@domain.com
    zmprov ma a@example.com -- -zimbraMailForwardingAddress y@domain.com
