    Default Add second domain

    I have set up ZCS with one domain. Our other domain is still being hosted on a separate non-Zimbra box. I want to begin the process of migrating the other domain over to the Zimbra box. However, as soon as I add the other domain name, mail to that domain will no longer be delivered to the other box. I have /etc/hosts with the ip of the other box for that domain. If I do a ping it does ping to the other box, but zimbra seemingly won't release the mail to the other domain. What am I missing?
    Thanks!

    I'll move this to the correct forum as it's not an install problem.

    Go to the wiki and read the details of Split Domain - that's what you'll need.

    Hm, I don't think this is the situation I'm talking about. This document assumes you have 1 domain (example.com) and some of the users are on Zimbra and some are still on another mail server.
    In my case I have 2 domains: example.com and domain.com. example.com is on Zimbra and running. I want to add domain.com to Zimbra, but any mail for domain.com should go to the existing domain.com mail server.


    Here's what I'm thinking might work.
    Create the second domain through the admin console.
    Then follow the instructions at: Managing Domains - Zimbra :: Wiki

    I've pasted these instructions below. But I want to know in advance whether this would be the proper approach. Also the other mail server is not a zimbra server. But I don't see why that would matter.


    "Relaying/Domain Forwarding

    If you want the Zimbra server to relay all mail destined for a particular domain (say, example.com) to another mta (say, other-mta.domain.com), you can forward the domain.
    zmprov
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @example.com
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @example.com
    md example.com zimbraMailTransport smtpther-mta.domain.com"
