    It's not advisable to use a catchall account, it's a target for spammers and you will end-up with spam that you will be unable to stop arriving in that mailbox.

    Put that information in your fourm profile as I asked earlier, that way we won't have to keep asking which version of Zimbra you have installed.

    What do you mean by a 'secondary server', is it a backup MX server? If it is a backup MX server then using the catchall is not the way to use that feature, please describe in more detail how your servers are configured and their location (also if they're behind a NAT router).

    A backup MX server should automatically forward all the mail to the server (and hence the correct mailboxes) when the primary server comes back on-line, why doesn't yours do that?
