    Default Which Job is sending this Email

    Some Job is sending an Email every 2 min to root - unfortunatly, it sends the mail via the relay MTA.

    How can i change this behavior? What process is sending the mail (zmmailboxdmgr?) and why?

    /var/log/mail.log

    Dec 13 08:10:10 localhost zmmailboxdmgr[27031]: status requested

    Well, it's not Zimbra. If it were, it would be zimbra@mail.domain.com

    It's something in your root crontab.

    su - root
    crontab -l

    Well...thank you. That was it. It was the fetchmail output. Another question. Why is postfix sending this mail via Relay MTA? In the main.cf of postfix ist following line: myhostname = server.homenet.lan and the mail goes to root@server.homenet.lan. Why doesnt postfix deliver this mail localy?

    It does deliver locally (probably unless you changed it).

    mail.server.lan should be the server that postfix is on....thus no relay.

    Why have fetchmail email output anywhere? Just change it to email only errors and you'll have a lot less traffic. You still need it to go to the proper email address, but who wants an email every 2 minutes?
    Code:
    /etc/webmin/fetchmail/check.pl --mail addrs\@domain.net --errors
    Cheers,

    Edit: This is even easier to configure if you're using Webmin to manage your fetchmail. It gives you a nice set of fields and radio buttons where you can configure the destination of your fetchmail output. This is done in the "Scheduled Checking" submenu of the Fetchmail management module.
