    Default Mail for root

    My Zimbra server is serving mail for domain "mydomain.com". How to make e-mails sent to root@localhost.localdomain to be delivered to admin@mydomain.com. I cannot add an alias for root@localhost.localdomain in the admin console, because there I can select only mydomain.com (i.e. root@mydomain.com).

    Two choices: add a domain called localhost.local and add the alias for the domain user to an account of your choice; change the user that system notifications are sent to. Search the forums if you want to change the default delivery address.

    I don't want my zimbra server to serve mail for domain "localhost.localdomain". I just want an alias for root@localhost.localdomain. So that when a system program (like cron) sends an e-mail to root ,it should be delivered to admin@mydomain.com. I searched the forum for posts explaining how to change the user for system notifications,but didn't find anything. Could you give me a link?

    Fix your server. If it's a RedHat derivative, you need to change the hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network from localhost.localdomain to your actual hostname, and run hostname hostname.example.com. Then cron will send mail to (and from) root@hostname.domain.com, not root@localhost.localdomain.
