    Okay... got zmlocalconfig figured out... and I still get an error when trying to send to mailing lists (but not to users).

    <ml@zimbra_host>: host zimbra_host[66.228.xxx.xxx] said: 550 <ml@hostname>: Recipient address rejected: zimbra_host (in reply to RCPT TO command)

    Mailman has no problems sending out however.

    Any ideas? I've tried looking around on Mailman's lists, but all of their problems/solutions are listed for old old versions (~2.0, installed 2.1.9).

    We found the problem of bounce mails... at least on my system...

    after hours of work, my friend and I make it work.

    we modify main.cf (postfix configuration) and modify this setting:

    mydestination = localhost
    TO

    mydestination = localhost myowndomain.com
    (of course, myowndomain.com is my domain that I use with zimbra)

    and it start working fine.

    my only problem is, that on zmlocalconfig is not that setting to be modified. and it was removed on each postfix restart.

    did anyone here know how to fix that setting?

    ----------

    EDIT:

    looking on the forum, more specific on this thread

    I found that we can change the "defaults" for main.cf file on /opt/zimbra/conf/zmmta.cf

    we can change the value of the line:
    POSTCONF mydestination localhost,
    I use this:

    POSTCONF mydestination LOCAL postfix_mydestination
    and then, with zmlocalconfig create it:

    zmlocalconfig -e postfix_mydestination='localhost myowndomain.com'
    (sorry if my english is not to good, my native language is spanish) but I hope this help =)

    using zmlocalconfig is correct, but you need to alter postfix_virtual_alias_maps and postfix_alias_maps instead of virtual_alias_maps and alias_maps. At least in version 4.5.9

    Hi,

    I had the same problem and I had to set an ldap variable to make the modification permanent.

    You need to use a ldap browser to set the change the zimbraMtaMyDestination to 'localhost youdomain.com' instead of 'localhost'
    You can also apply an ldapmodify command directly on the zimbra server.

    After that, you must to restart Zimbra (or just restart the Mta).
    Everything is working now (I use Zimbra 5.01).

    Hope this help you

    Question

    Quote Originally Posted by amitbapat View Post

    Has anyone found a workaround for this requirement? The hostname for my Zimbra server is the same as one of the virtual domains hosted in Zimbra. And as the note says, this does not work: any mail to a list address is bounced back to the sender, and /var/log/maillog that Postfix tried to re-write the domain portion of the list email address to the hostname of the Zimbra server (i.e., local delivery is not working).

    Any suggestions?

    UPDATE:

    I was able to get local delivery working by creating a CNAME in our local DNS server pointing to the Zimbra server's A record, then updating the virtual aliases file generated by mailman to redirect each alias listname@cname. Not the prettiest, but it works.

    The hostname of your Zimbra server should not be the same as one of the Domain Names it should be the FQDN of your server. The server should have a name like: mail01.mydomain.com and the domain you host should be mydomain.com - that should be the correct sett-up and this problem won't occur.

    The workaround I have in place works, but it breaks some of the convenient list-creation automation that Mailman provides. So since the setup mistake is already made, is there a good way to change the name of one of Zimbra's virtual domains (specifically, the primary one that was configured when Zimbra was initially installed)?

    Thanks,

    Jeremy.
