    Default testing environment

    hi to all,
    i'm trying to test zimbra in a pseudo-production environment, so i installed zimbra and now i'd like to configure it to:

    1- operate as backup server for some domains (i think that 10 o 20 domains should be enough)
    2 - accept emails only for real users
    3 - do antispam and antivirus checks
    on incoming emails
    4 - send clean messages to the real mail server
    5 - evaluate it's performances
    6 - move back mailboxes to zimbra

    now i read about domains splitting but i cannot understand if i can do
    antispam and antivirus cleaning before moving emails to the other mail server.

    BR

    Hi Maurizio

    Yes you can do anti-virus anti-spam filtering before sending
    to the final server.

    So Zimbra will receive all the emails, and for those users that you
    want to keep in the old system, create those users in the Zimbra server
    and them run this command for each user

    zmprov ma bar@example.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:mail.example.com:25

    as the Split Domain document says, this command will redirect the
    email to your old system after it was verified by Zimbra anti-spam/virus

    thank you !
    having to do so for different hundreds of users is it possible to create these users and simulating the execution of the command writing directly into ldap ?

    Hi Maurizio

    If you have many users you should create a shell script that
    will run the command for every user, you should not write
    directly to the LDAP because Zimbra stores information in other
    places as well.

    You can use zmprov from the command line to add accounts:

    zmprov ca fonz@domain.com fonz givenName The sn Fonz displayName 'The Fonz'
