    Default forward mail to more than one other mailboxes

    Hello,

    to give you a more clear idea of what i need to do, I want to make a mailbox act like a kind of ditribution list. That's forwarding all messeges to, let's say, 3 other mail accounts, while keeping a copy of the message in it's own inbox. Is it possible to do it?? On the Zimbra administration page i there is only the the possibility of forwarding a message twards a single other mail address, not more than one. Thank you.

    Currently, admins can set multiple forwarding addresses for an account by setting zimbraMailForwardingAddress. (Or see admin console > individual account > forwarding tab > forwarding addresses hidden from the user.)

    The end user can only set one value in their options/preferences (zimbraPrefMailForwardingAddress) which is a single valued in the LDAP schema.
    Making it multi-value really calls for having an admin settable limit on how many you are allowed. Be sure to vote on: Bug 11299 - Allow user to set multiple forwarding addresses, need admin defined limit

    Admin console gui: Simply put one value in the 'forwarding addresses hidden from the user' and the option to 'add address' will appear so you can add another blank (see attached pic).
    CLI:
    su - zimbra
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraMailForwardingAddress forward1@domain.com
    zmprov ma user@domain.com +zimbraMailForwardingAddress forward2@domain.com
    zmprov ma user@domain.com +zimbraMailForwardingAddress forward3@domain.com
