    Default 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?

    Default distribution list

    set up the local account as a distribution list (zmprov cdl list@domain.tld) and add the external account to the dl (zmprov adlm list@domain.tld acct@external.tld)

    Lightbulb Another option

    You could also create this as an account alias.

    example:

    Your email acount is jwilso2@mail.zimbra.com.
    The address you want to create is wilson@mail.zimbra.com
    Go into the Admin Counsole.
    click on the accounts icon.
    Click on the account you want the mail delivered to (your account? jwilso2@mail.zimbra.com)
    Click on Edit
    Click on the Aliases Tab
    Type in the name of the account you want to be the "dummy account" (wilson)
    Click Add Alias
    Click Save

    Done!
