Zimbra vs Exchange

Postby 10343Abdellah » Sat Feb 22, 2014 4:04 pm

Hi All,
I am new to Zimbra, I need urgent help asap. we have 10 domains hosted on Zimbra, we moved one of the domains (let's name it domain X) to Exchange 365, but we still have that domain and users active on zimbra, I don't want to delete them yet, we just changed the DNS to point to MS exchange, new messages are being delivered to Exchange fine. Now when users from other domains on Zimbra send an email to one of the users on the domain X(on Exchange) it delivers the emails to zimbra internaly not to Exchange, I do understand why it does that. but
How can I tell zimbra to deliver messages meant for domain X only to deliver them to Exhcange 365. if that possible?
What is the best easiest method to migrate account from Zimbra to Exchange?

Your help will be appreciated very much and god bless.
Thank you,

You can use zimbraMailTransport for account alredy migratet to Exchange 365, just in cli set:

zmprov ma account@domain.X zimbraMailTransport smtp:server.exchange365:25

And now all email sent for this account will be forwarded to the exchange server.
server.exchange365 is your mx setings for this domain on 365.
