    Default Inconsistant forwarding

    We've got a user that forwards all his mail to his assistant. I verified that this was set in the admin interface. For some reason, she gets most of the mail, but not all of it. There doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason as to which ones make it to her inbox and which ones don't. They can be people on the same server (we're on a split domain), people inside or outside our domain. I had her check her junk mail folder - not in there. She has one mail filter in place - these emails don't match the criteria for it.

    I found one of the emails in the logs. If I'm reading this right (and I'd like to think that I am ), it's being delivered twice - once to the original recipiant and once for the forward.

    Code:
    2008-03-18 16:34:20,558 INFO  [LmtpServer-55488] [ip=xx.xx.xx.xx;] lmtp - Delivering message: size=6879 bytes, nrcpts=1, sender=sender@domain.com, msgid=<032d01c88948$27eb1eb0$77c15c10$@com>
    2008-03-18 16:34:20,569 INFO  [LmtpServer-55489] [ip=xx.xx.xx.xx;] lmtp - Delivering message: size=6879 bytes, nrcpts=1, sender=sender@domain.com, msgid=<032d01c88948$27eb1eb0$77c15c10$@com>
    So does this mean it made it into her inbox? Does anyone have ideas on how can I further troubleshoot this? Do the logs record when a message is deleted or moved?

    Thanks!

    Default

    Yes, it is! Especially when one knows what to search for.

    Thanks for your reply. I think the zmmsgtrace command is exactly what I'm looking for. But, for some reason it's not working like I would expect it to.

    Code:
    [zimbra@server log]$ grep sendername mailbox.log.2008-03-18
    2008-03-18 09:31:15,213 INFO  [LmtpServer-53965] [ip=XX.XX.XX.XX;] lmtp - Delivering message: size=56954 bytes, nrcpts=1, sender=sendername@domain.com, msgid=<026701c8890d$103ecb30$30bc6190$@com>
    
    [zimbra@server log]$ zmmsgtrace -i '026701c8890d$103ecb30$30bc6190$@com'

    I wondered if there was something wrong with my syntax, so I tried:

    Code:
    [zimbra@sender log]$ zmmsgtrace -s sender@domain.com
    Tracing messages
            from sender@domain.com
    
    
    Message ID '006201c87dc2$5f9a6320$1ecf2960$@com'
    sender@domain.com -->
                    someoneelse@domain2.com
      Recipient someoneelse@domain2.com
      2008-03-03 23:39:40 - incomingserver.domain.com (xx.xx.xx.xx) --> server

    Am I doing something wrong?
