    Default Split domain mail

    Hi,

    We are in the process of migrating from scalix to zimbra.

    Currently with our Scalix setup, email for a domain hits our net facing mta's then is either delivered to our standard mailstore, or, remap'd to user@scalix.domain and delivered to scalix.

    On scalix the user is then setup with a From: address of their original email address, prior to the remap and the remap'd user@scalix.domain address is hidden.

    This allows us companys to split email for their domain across 2 servers, with it being transparent to all but our internal systems.



    We are trying to achieve this same split domain email with Zimbra, however, taking the same approach we have taken with Scalix, is not working with Zimbra.

    Scalix groups users by Mailnode, Zimbra groups via domain. On scalix a single domain can exist over multiple mailnodes, we cant do this with Zimbra.



    I hope people understand and can be some help.

    Cheers!

    I don't really understand what your current configuration with Scalix is intended to achieve, doesn't a multi-server installation of Zimbra do what you need?

    It allows us as an ISP to offer users a free solution or a paid one. Useless theres a way we can offer our customers zimbra for free, our old free pop hosting must remain.


    I believe i have found the solution now setting the allowed address and PrefFrom for the user

    If you're using a Split Domain then surely all you need to do on your edge MTAs is forward non-existent users to the Zimbra server?
