    Default Wierd Email sender

    I was going over daily email report (for the first time after almost 4months of having zimbra up and running)... and i came across a wierd email address as one of the system senders...

    zimbra@vesta.site5.com ..

    Site5.com is the company that i have email hosted at before my zimbra server downloads it..

    any idea where i can narrow down why this is sending email via my zimbra server..

    That address is a mail server and it's either a spoofed header or it's infected in either case it's probably spam. Check the log files for info on who connects to you.

    You shouldn't need to do anything to it, that email will have been discarded by the anti-spam in Zimbra - it was a message sent to you not via your server.

    Correct. If you feel like investigating further you can look through your logs for that email address and you should see that it was 'removed' from the system right after it was scanned.
