    Default zimbraMailTransport plus keep local copy

    Hello,

    I've tried finding this on the forums and google, but so far can't find an answer.

    I'm migrating from 5.0.20 server to different server on 6.0.1. I've got the new server up and running and all accounts and data are perfect and I want the old server to also send its mail to the new one while migrating users. zimbraMailTransport works great, but it doesn't keep a local copy for itself.

    Is there any way to forward mail to a new server and also keep a local copy?

    Old server: Release 5.0.16_GA_2921.UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 FOSS edition
    New server: Release 6.0.1_GA_1816.UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 FOSS edition.

    thanks!

    Thats the article I used to get zimbraMailTransport to work, but it just forwards the email to the new server and does not leave a local copy

    I don't understand why, if you're migrating users, you want a 'local' copy of the mail. As far as I can see it wouldn't make sense to move a user account to a new server, forward the mail to that server, and try and keep a local copy. In addition there's no account on the local server where you can keep the mail, it's merely point to where the mail should actually be delivered.

    I understand its an odd question and non-standard, so if there isn't any easy way than that is OK. But it would be nice since it can take a while for DNS to propagate we wouldn't lose anything when we change the A and MX records.

    You won't lose anything, all your forwarded mail will be on the new server. DNS is usually updated within 24hrs (and most times it's Quicker than that) but any mail that can't find your server will be retried and delivered when your server is visible.

    Unless you have 2 different domains. Migrating one being different from legacy one.
