I have just installed zimbra 5.0.14.GA_2850 and have a small query regarding the domain alias.
At the moment I am running this new mailserver in "shadow" mode parallell to the old mailsystem we have, the recieving front end MTA is simply using bcc_recipient_map to forward copies of the mails to this new server.
I installed the server, lets call it, mail1.example.com with the default maildomain example.com. This works fine locally.
When I do a bcc from the front end MTA though, it connects and tries to mail to firstname.lastname@example.org whichs immediatly gets a relay denied.
I solved that by using the example in the wiki here and setup a domainalias for that mail.example.com...
This solved the relaying problem, but in the zimbra admin console I see only the original domain example.com and its code... original-code-string and a complaint that I haven't created the Domain Level Documents, it works for the logged in user though.
zmprov cd mail1.example.com zimbraDomainType alias zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @example.com
Is this a bug I encountered or just how it works?
This catchall will be removed later when this become the primary mail server.
