At first, sorry for my bad English!
Well, i've set up a Virtual Machine in Virtualbox with Ubuntu 8.04 installed on it.
My Host-Machine does have the IP-Adress 192.168.100.32, the Guest-Machine has a briged Network-Interface and hast 192.168.100.99.
Both IP / Machines are in a Domain called "company.local".
The Ubuntu-Install's Hostname is "zimbra-server", so the FQDN is zimbra-server.company.local
I've set all required Settings in our DNS-Server and then i installed Zimbra 5 OS-Edition. The Installation was successfull and everything is working.
But now i've figured out 2 Problems:
1. If i create an external Mail-Adress, i can't set the SMTP (-Auth). I found out, that the Server sends the Mail itselfs, not over another ISP's Mailserver.
The Problem is, we have a dynamic IP Adress and since the Installation Spamhaus blocked our IP twice! So we can't send outgoing E-Mails...
So is there a Way to set an external Mailserver (for each User/Account)?
2. If i send a Mail to a Zimbra-Account (user1.company.local) then the Mail arrives automatically (without clicking on "get mails"). But if i send a Mail to an external Mail-Adress (e.g. Mail from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com (This Mail-Adress is set up as external-Mail-Account in Zimbra)) then the Mail doesn't arrive automatically! If i click on "Get Mails", then the Mail is downloaded...
Is there a Way, that external Accounts were also checked (maybe every 60seconds) for new Mails?
Thx and Greetz,
EDIT: I have to say that i tried the Solution in the wiki and i read this Thread: Help for SMTP Relays for external domains
BUT: After sending a Mail it takes about 3-4 Minutes, then i receive this Log-Entry in zimbra.log:
zimbra conversation with mailout.company.de[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] timed out while receiving the initial server greeting.
What does this mean!?
