    Default [multi domain] one account in multi domains

    Hi,
    I'm pretty new in zcs, I successfully installed ZCS on ubuntu 8.04 for test purposes and wondering if there is a possibility to realize such a scenario:
    Master domain: domain.com
    secondary domains: domain.org, domain.net and how to configure user account (user@domain.com) to allow him receiving mails for user@domain.org or user@domain.net WITHOUT configuring aliases.
    In few words is there possibility to "automagically" configure one account in few domains.

    Greets,

    JaSt

    Welcome to the forums

    Why would you not want to use aliases ? That is the best way to do what you want

    Yes I know aliases do the job, but there will be 17 domains and c.a. 150 mailboxes (per domain). Person who will take day to day care of mail system is very busy and I was thinking that limiting needed actions with adding/modyfing accounts will be great help and should limit to minimum mistakes and for example forgotted aliases (sorry my poor english I hope that this what I wrote is clear and understable enough)

    You could use Wiki :: zmprov to provision the accounts and aliases from the command line. A little script would reduce the amount of work involved.

    Yes, I was thinking about that but this tool need command line access to server which I'm not quite happy to give to that person.
    Anyway many thanks for your help. I though that this is common task which I don't know how to do, I'll try some shell scripting and cron jobs, maybe this will do.

    You could use sudo to allow limited access to the zimbra account ?
