    Default Zimbra as Edge MTA?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to setup multiple MTA email servers using Zimbra. Does anyone know any good tutorial on how to setup Zimbra as Edge MTA ? This Edge MTA will do initial AV and spam scanning before sending it to other Zimbra MTA depending on the domain.

    If there isn't any tutorial around, anyone know how I can achieve this using Zimbra?

    I think Zimbra is far superior compares to other web client very responsive and beautiful and I like it so far

    just install the MTA on the edge box (iow: choose not to install the other services on the edge box). install.sh asks you what services you want to install.

    We don't have the option to turn on/off anti-spam and anti-virus on a per domain basis - it is globally on or off. You could work around this by setting amavisVirus/SpamLover on the accounts where you do not want to filter. Look at amavisd.schema. We mix the amavis objectclass into zimbraAccount so you can change the amavis attrs with zmprov.

    Default Edge MTA not Scanning

    I did installed MTA in the edge box and did the following:
    zmprov ma test@account.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:mail.account.com

    The problem is, the Edge MTA seems to skip scanning test@account.com. mail.account.com scan the email for spam and virus though. I would like the Edge MTA to do the scanning as well to be useful. Is there anyway I can achieve this using Zimbra ?

    The spam and anti-virus is installed by default, why do you think it's not scanning your email?

    My mistake. I guess I must have disabled the virus checking earlier. Reinstalling zimbra at edge mta seems to cure it Thanks phoenix

    zmprov ma test@account.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:mail.account.com

    This seems to be that I have to create all accounts and transfer individual Accounts. Can't I forward the whole domain.
