    If you want the Zimbra server to relay all mail destined for a particular domain (say, example.com) to another mta (say, other-mta.domain.com), you can forward the domain.

    zmprov
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @example.com
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @example.com
    md example.com zimbraMailTransport smtpther-mta.domain.com

    I think you can also do this as another way to make a sort of local domain alias:

    zmprov
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @example.com
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @domain.com
    md example.com zimbraMailTransport lmtp:zimbra.domain.com

    For non-zimbra domains, this might prove useful as well: Transport_Table_for_external_servers
    Yeah, I just found this page a few minutes ago: Managing Domains - Zimbra :: Wiki which says basically the same thing.

    I'm pretty sure that I need to restart Postfix for the changes to take effect, so I can't play with it right now, but I think that this will do what I need.

    Thanks for the info.

    True; though some users will actively be using Zimbra and everybody else should have their email re-directed.

    I'm not sure what you're referring to exactly, but in my scenario, all users will either be using one mail system or the other.

    What I'm looking to do is be able to pre-provision an entire domain in Zbimra before we cut a customer over to it without all mail that orginates within our Zimbra system to that domain being delivered to the not-yet-active boxes.

    I tested doing it with the commands below today without success.

    zmprov
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @example.com
    md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @example.com
    md example.com zimbraMailTransport smtpther-mta.domain.com

    I'm starting to believe that there isn't a straightforward way to do this.

    Are you able to post a extract from /var/log/zimbra.log for when this happens ?
