  • Hi, 

    Based on my research, I am afraid there isn’t an officially documented guide about how to configure the coexistence of Zimbra and Exchange.

    When it comes to the implement of send/receive connectors, hopefully you can find the discussion in the following threads helpful:
    How to configure same domain Zimbra mail & Exchange 2016 Mail 
    Exchange 2013 co-exist with zimbra shared domain

    Besides, you may refer to the article below which describes the split domain configuration with Exchange and Zimbra:
    Split domain with Exchange 2007
    Please Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.

    By the way, as here we mainly focus on general issues about Exchange and our knowledge and resources regarding Zimbra are limited, so personally I’d like to recommend contacting Zimbra as well for further confirmation. Thanks for your understanding.

  • Hello Mbey,

    To my knowledge and research, Zimbra uses the IMAP connection. You can use the third party tools to migrate the data from Zimbra to the Onpremise Exchange 2016. MigationWiz is one of the option which has the detailed information on the requirements,

    https://help.bittitan.com/hc/en-us/articles/115008106907-Zimbra-to-On-Premises-Exchange-Migration-Guide

    Other option would be to go for Export/Import PST. Creating a new mailboxes in Exchange and export the PST data from Zimbra and import it in the new exchange mailbox.


    Thanks,
