Forwarding only accounts
Is there a way to create an account that will only forward to another address, without storing a local copy or allowing login rights? Right now, I use the admin interface to create a user, and when creating the account I set the forwarding address. But this allows both the user to login and a local copy is created. So I set the account status to locked, and the mail gets forwarded, but still the local copy is made. I suppose I could use zmprov to clear the zimbraMailDeliveryAddress, and I think this will stop the local copy from being created.
But is there a simpler way to do this in one step? Like with zmprov?
set up the local account as a distribution list (zmprov cdl firstname.lastname@example.org) and add the external account to the dl (zmprov adlm email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org)
You could also create this as an account alias.
Your email acount is email@example.com.
The address you want to create is firstname.lastname@example.org
Go into the Admin Counsole.
click on the accounts icon.
Click on the account you want the mail delivered to (your account? email@example.com)
Click on Edit
Click on the Aliases Tab
Type in the name of the account you want to be the "dummy account" (wilson)
