    Default forwarding and keeping a copy

    What is the best way in Zimbra to deliver an incoming email locally and forward a copy to another account? e.g., say we have an zimbra account john@xyz.com, i would like each incoming email to be delivered to john@xyz.com and also forward it to john@hotmail.com.

    Default

    In the admin UI you can create a forwarding account for that user.

    I did that and the incoming message does get forwarded, however, the local zimbra account does not get a copy of the email.

    Default That is odd.

    If that account has a zimbraMailDeliveryAddress attribute, and the zimbraMailTranport attribute looks sane the local account should also get a copy.

    The zimbraMailDeliveryAddress is set to the local user's email address and
    zimbraMailTransport: lmtp:white.soltec.net:7025

    Is there something else I should be doing?

    I haven't made any other changes but it appears to be working now. It is delivering to both accounts.

    thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the forums,

    Admins can set multiple forwarding addresses for an account by setting zimbraMailForwardingAddress.
    Admin console GUI > individual account > forwarding tab > forwarding addresses hidden from the user.
    Simply put one value in the 'forwarding addresses hidden from the user' and the option to 'add address' will appear so you can add another blank and so on (see attached pic).

    Or via CLI:
    su - zimbra
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraMailForwardingAddress hiddenforward1@domain.com
    zmprov ma user@domain.com +zimbraMailForwardingAddress hiddenforward2@domain.com

    The end user can only set one value in their options/preferences (zimbraPrefMailForwardingAddress) which is a single valued in the LDAP schema.
    Side note: Making the user one multi-value really calls for having an admin settable limit on how many you are allowed. Be sure to vote on Bug 11299 - Allow user to set multiple forwarding addresses, need admin defined limit

I require, mails comes from a particular remote domain say yahoo.com to a particular user of my domain abc@mydomain.com will be forwarded to an account of my domain say admin@mydomain.com without the knowledge of abc and abc will get the mail as it is. Also when abc reply the mails a copy of those mail will also goes to admin@mydomain.com. Please help me to solve the problem.
