You have around 500 users, which their emails are forwarded to external accounts.
Each user has an OOO message informing the senders for their new email account.

Now you want to close these accounts.

zmprov ma john@example.com zimbraAccountStatus closed

By closing the accounts, this should stop forwarding message to external accounts, but this also prevents OOO messages from being sent.

However, you still want to inform senders the account has been relocated.

Use relocated_maps for the Zimbra MTA

touch /opt/zimbra/conf/relocated

postmap /opt/zimbra/conf/relocated

postconf -e relocated_maps=lmdb:/opt/zimbra/conf/relocated

zmmtactl restart

postconf | grep ^relocated_maps
relocated_maps = lmdb:/opt/zimbra/conf/relocated     <<== you should see this


Edit /opt/zimbra/conf/relocated

The format to use is simple, the old company address first, followed by the new address on the same line.


john@example.com          smithj@yahoo.com

Anytime /opt/zimbra/conf/relocated is updated, be sure to run the postmap utility against it.

postmap /opt/zimbra/conf/relocated

Now, anytime someone sends john@example.com a new message, they will get a bounce message back.
