    Default Bad recipient address syntax

    I am getting a "Bad recipient address syntax" error message. I think that its being cause by outlook putting in extra quotes in the email addresss.
    <'user@domain.com'> instead of <user@domain.com>


    I was woundering if it would be valid to do a header check in postfix to correct this problem.

    /opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_header_checks
    Code:
    /<'/ REPLACE <
    /'>/ REPLACE >
    I'm not sure if its the right synax to use.

    Might want to file a bug on that with repo steps. Seems to me that it would work.

    Also, I'm moving your thread to the Zimbra Administrator's forum. This is the Zimbra Desktop forum

    I was able to test the fix and it works.

    Luckly one of my customers was able to resend an email that would always get bounced back.

    When I put the following in my /opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_header_checks file, it removes it when I restart Zimbra. I'm running version 7.1.4.

    Code:
    /<'/ REPLACE <
    /'>/ REPLACE >
    I'm having the "Bad recipient address syntax" issue. When someone sends mail to one of my accounts, sometimes they get the following message back:
