Is it possible to migrate two separate email domains to one new email domain?

Example:

Hope at abc.com
Joy at xyz.com

Migrate to:

Hope at abc.com >> Hope at dream.com
Joy at xyz.com >> Joy at dream.com

Is this possible to achieve in Kerio Connect?

Do I need to create users in the old domain and do an email forwarding to the new domain? Or how it should be done?

Thank you for any input.

You can use the domain rename feature.
I'm assuming you are performing the migration using either the IMAP or Exchange migration tools.
1. Migrate users in abc.com
2. After migration, rename abc.com to xyz.com.
3. Migrate xyz.com.
4. On target server, rename xyz.com to dream.com.

Thanks Brian, I didn't know about the rename domain.

That means on DNS server I will point the domains that need to be rename and the IP Address should be the same with the new domain? Is that how it should go?

Ex.:

abc.com IP 11.11.12.13
xyz.com IP 11.11.12.13

dream.com IP 11.11.12.13

All the domains should have same DNS IP?

Thank you.

Yes, you would assign the same IP to all three domain's MX records.

Don't forget to setup a domain aliases for both abc.com & xyz.com so that any mail sent to those are routed to dream.com

Cheers,
Jon
