Catch All Activation in Zimbra
« on: March 24, 2016, 12:55:03 PM »
First I wish to introduce myself. I am Roman from Canada. I have found good solutions on this forum & though of giving a try to one issue I am facing. One of our linux admin is on leave and I wish to perform one task. I am familiar with few commands in linux and want to achieve task as below.

We have a Zimbra server & I wish to activate the account "" as the catch all for the domain on our in house zimbra server.  This is something that, in Zimbra, has to be done from the command line.

Can somebody guide me in the right direction ?

Welcome to our forums & glad to know that you got good solutions here. Kudos to all our team members who have contributed a lot to build this forum.

Here are the steps to enable catchall.

Access your zimbra server via a terminal OR SSH.

# su zimbra
# zmprov modifyAccount zimbraMailCatchAllAddress

This will enable catch all & any email not delivered to, will be sent to Emails will be received on the set catch all address if any of the email address under your domain does not exists.

At a later stage if you wish to disable it, use the command below.
