    Default Split domains and qmail

    Hi,

    I'm trying to set up our new Zimbra server as a secondary server to our current courier/qmail setup.

    However, I can't figure out what the equivalent of Postfix's "relay domains" is in qmail, thus I'm not sure how I'm supposed to configure qmail to forward a specific email address to the Zimbra server...

    Also, how do I handle the lmtp transfer using qmail? (AFAICT, qmail doesn't have support for this...)

    Anyone? TIA!

    For domain forwarding, the file is /var/qmail/control/smtproutes.
    I'm not sure there's something that works for individual email address.

    You don't need LMTP, plain SMTP will work for the forward.

    Have you reviewed the Split Domain article in the wiki?

    Yes.

    My issue is that the wiki article makes no reference as to how to achieve this in qmail.

    Hmmm. So, in other words, it's not possible to use individual email accounts with Zimbra, for testing, before a full migration?

    Not knowing much about qmail but isn't it dot-forward or fastforward?
    Regards

    The dot-forward (and fastforward) thingies were developped to be able to use sendmail style files to achieve the same that the .qmail- files.

    These files allow you to forward one email address to another one, not to specify a "new" SMTP server to handle it.

    We set up zimbra.domain.com and then set the .qmail files to read username@zimbra.domain.com.

    Default qmail+LDAP and Zimbra in common domain

    Hi All,

    I have a similar requirement for having a few users in Zimbra. Currently I have a qmail server running with OpenLDAP. I want to migrate a few qmail accounts to Zimbra, while others to continue in the existing qmail server. Both should refer to the common LDAP Server and should be on the same domain (example.com).

    I have installed the zimbra sever and it's working fine. However, it could not communicate with qmail server (both in same domain, same LDAP, separated by mailHost attribute in LDAP).

    I need to gradually migrate qmail users to zimbra, say around 200 users every day.
    I read about split domain, which requires provisioning of all qmail accounts on zimbra server, which is not possible for me, since I have more than 4000 users in qmail. I want to run these 2 servers in parallel for some time for the same domain.

    Please suggest.

    Regards,
    SaN
