    Question Domain alias for all users

    Hello, is there a way to make a new domain an alias for the existing one? Our company is currently using for instance company.com domain and is rolling out newcompany.com for all emails. How can I add this newcompany.com as an alias to company.com without having to explicitly add an email alias for each and every user, their existing aliases and existing distribution list? Is it possible at all with Zimbra 5.0.5 network edition? Thanks!

    It's possible but I strongly encourage you not to do it.

    If you really want to do it : ManagingDomains - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Why I won't do it again : Bug 14129 - no 550 unknown recipient rejection or out of office replies for alias domains

    So is the proper method to create two independent domains and in User Aliases add the required addresses for the new domain? It looks like a lot of work...

    That's the way I'm currently handling it. It's a pain.
    But a tiny pain compared to the spam we're getting with domain alias.

    I use a domain-wide alias. We have 2 domains, and anyone can email to either of them.

    Code:
    zmprov cd newdomain.com zimbraDomainType alias zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @newdomain.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @olddomain.com
