    Default Forward only accounts?

    I have a few users on my domain that have their email redirected to a gmail account. Can I create a forward account with zimbra, that will not store the emails, just forward them?

    Each user can do that themselves, in the options/Mail tab they can set the forwarding address and whether they want to keep a copy on the zimbra server.

    You can user distribution lists. Setup a list and then add one user to it the user doesn't have to be in your domain of control. The user can be a gmail user.

    Just to add one more option -- we have a few users along these lines at work, but have occasion where it's necessary for them to check an email within Zimbra itself (for example, Calendar invitations).

    There's an option in the Advanced settings, called "E-mail message lifetime". We've set that to 30 days for users who just want their email forwarded.

    Keep I mind also, that the SPAM that isn't blocked outright ( the stuff that gets put into the junk folders ) will be forwarded as well.

    See this thread for more details:

    Default Mail forwarding via command line

    It's easy to add a mail forwarding address via command line. I have been using following :-
    zmprov ma accountname@domain.com zimbraPrefMailForwardingAddress yourid@yahoo.com

    But to remove such forwarding at any point of time, I have to access GUI interface via browser.
    Can anyone tell me how to nullify mail forwarding via command line ?

    zmprov ma account@domain.com zimbraMailForwardingAddress ""

    incase anyone else googles around looking for a solution to this like I did
