Hi,

I am testing the KMS6 beta, and am very impressed so far with the improvements (some well overdue).
However, I would like to have the emails that currently go into our KMS 5 system forwarded to the Beta system as well - good way of testing the spam filtering amongst other things.
I know I can set each user to forward and copy to the other system, but that is a fiddly thing to do for lots of users. Also this would mean having a new domain in the Beta system and setting up MX records, etc.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks

Sure. Look in the domain options -- you can make one domain forward to another mailserver.

This will only forward when the domain is not known (in Kerio 5 at least). I want to forward ALL emails - so I want the primary server (Kerio 5.7.6) to think of the 2nd server (Kerio 6 beta) as a fallback server - so we have a duplicate system.

You may have mis-read the option -- It forwards when the *user* isn't known.

Just don't define any users.

But the whole point is to get a duplicate of an existing LIVE system! Can't have a live system without users, and the duplicate system needs to have users to let people try it out :)

if youre thinking of a live backup scenario, such as a 2nd mail server such that when the 1st one fails, I dont know how kerio does that either, BUT, if youre thinking of a way to backup the files, and easily recreate the server should your primary go down, just make a copy of the mailserver folder and the config files. This will let you easily recreate the account and emails (inbox and queue). obviously, this does not avoid downtime.

but think about it. in a scenario where the 2nd one kicks in when the 1st one goes down, what happens when the 1st one is up and the emails during the downtime are left on the 2nd one? Obviously you can only specify one mail server for your clients...it will be a nightmare to maintain two accounts...

OK. Then yeah, you'll have to either make an alias for each user, or make a user that forwards for each one.
