Topic: Domain alias with some users migrated to iRedMail

Hello

I have domain alias + shadowAddress setup on iRedMail so together with mails going to old mail server and being forwarded to the iRedMail to be delivered to the new mail server.

i.e.

* old mail server - domain mail.mydomain.com with user myuser@mydomain.com -> this user has alias setup to send any mails to myuser@mydomain2.com

* new mail server (iRedMail) - domain mail.mydomain.com with user myuser@mydomain.com and shadowAddress of myuser@mydomain2.com

MX record for mydomain still pointing to old server
MX record for mydomain2 pointing to iRedMail server

What i have noticed is when myuser sends email out to any other user to the mydomain.com on iRedMail, they get 'no virtual mailbox' error since i assume it knows because iRedMail has the mydomain.com domain, it is not consulting the mx record but sending it internally. (correct me if i am wrong)

But what i would like to do is iRedMail to still send mails to mydomain.com to the old mailserver while i migrate the mail box/MX record etc

can this be done?

thanks in advance

Why not host only mydomain2 on iRedMail?

Hi - thanks for getting back to me

i did think about that but was not sure if iRedMail allowed you to use both the hosted user name AND shadowAddress to login/fetch mails. i need to have the old domain because eventually its going to be migrated over to new mail server.

So can iRedMail do this?

* Just host mydomain2.com on iRedMail and create shadowAddress myuser@mydomain.com (i.e. reverse of what i have set up)
* Then migrate myuser@mydomain.com user to new iRedMail server
* When myuser@mydomain.com on the NEW iRedMail server logs in and sends email to anotheruser@mydomain.com, would iRedMail work out that to send it to the old mail server and not sending it internally (i suspect not because the hosted domain will be mydomain2.com on iRedMail?)
* And the myuser on the new iRedMail can still use the old myuser@mydomain.com to login and fetch mail from iRedMail ? i.e. use the shadowAddress

Do you follow what i'm trying to do?

Hello? Is any of the DEVs around? Is posting to this forum best way to get support as 'paid' customer?

Re: Domain alias with some users migrated to iRedMail

How about this:

* Host mydomain on old server
* Host mydomain and mydomain2 on iRedMail, mydomain2 is an alias domain of mydomain.
* Add necessary accounts on iRedMail server, e.g. myuser.
* Add one more lookup file in /etc/postfix/main.cf on iRedMail, query users which stored in old server. e.g.

virtual_mailbox_maps =
    proxy:ldap:/etc/postfix/ldap_virtual_mailbox_maps.cf,
    proxy:ldap:/etc/postfix/virtual_mailbox_on_old_server.cf    # <-- add this line.

* Configure /etc/postfix/virtual_mailbox_on_old_server.cf, it should be like /etc/postfix/ldap_virtual_mailbox_maps.cf, for example:

server_host     = x.x.x.x         # This is IP address of your old server.
server_port     = 389
version         = 3
bind            = yes
start_tls       = no
bind_dn         = cn=vmail,dc=iredmail,dc=org      # <-- Use bind dn on your old server
bind_pw         = RvIwFtOOLbnwOcvmuT5TtY3nVQw7Uy
search_base     = o=domains,dc=iredmail,dc=org
scope           = sub
query_filter    = (&(objectClass=mailUser)(|(mail=%s)(&(enabledService=shadowaddress)(shadowAddress=%s)))(accountStatus=active)(enabledService=mail)(enabledService=deliver))
result_attribute= mailMessageStore
debuglevel      = 0

Of course you may want to modify more settings in this file.

* Use 'postmap' to test it. for example:

# postmap -q 'user@domain.ltd' ldap:/etc/postfix/virtual_mailbox_on_old_server.cf

Here, 'user@domain.ltd' is one of mail accounts on your old server.

That's all.

P.S. To be clear, purchasing iRedAdmin-Pro doesn't means purchasing support for iRedMail.
I try my best to response as quick as possible, but i'm not living in this forum, so, please forgive me, and please be gentle.

Many many thanks for your reply.
I will have a look at your solution although as my old mail server is not based on LDAP AFAIK, i'm not sure if i can use your solution as is but it certainly gave me a a good guidance on where to start.

And I am sorry for the urgent nature of entries that has been made in previous posts - i did not mean to cause any offence and certainly did not expect you to be looking at the forum 24x7 so for that i apologise. I have certainly had great quick responses from yourself from my previous questions on this forum.

many thanks again

Of course you can use mysql lookup instead. This is just a sample.
