    Default [SOLVED] Accept all email to domain? Catch-all?

    I'm migrating to Zimbra from good ol' postfix. Right now my postfix is configured to accept all email to the domain, and put it into a specific user's mailbox. So for example anything@mydomain.com goes into bill@mydomain.com - I do this on purpose.

    I tried searching for this, but I can't find it in the Wiki or the forums. Is there an easy way to do this that I am missing? I have thousands of known aliases, and I'm not able to enter them all in as aliases!

    Oh excellent, I didn't search for "catchall" I did it as separate words.

    Quick question, it says this will increase spam (due to spammers sending to xcveawsf@mydomain.com and the like), does it not run these messages through the normal spamassassin or clamd?

    It does and most of the spam I get is caught by the spam filters (I have catchall enabled). Looking through my spam folder I would guess 90% is addressed to my real email and the rest to made up ones. I don't see how a catchall is going to really increase spam levels to your inbox as the spam filter will still see spam and in my experience it has been very good at its job.

    Does this only work for one domain at a time? domain1.com isn't forwarding, but domain2.com is! Is there a way to have multiple domains forward to one account?

    Disregard, I found that I just needed to add a + to the command after the first one, like so:
    zmprov modifyAccount realuser@domain.com +zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @otherdomain.com
