    Default A possible bug in amavisd.conf.in file?

    Firstly, I am trying to setup zimbra using two machines. One will handle the spam/virus filter then deliver the filtered mail to another zimbra machine running the mailbox and ldap services. I noticed that on the spam filter machine, the amavisd.conf.in file contains
    hostname => '@@zimbra_server_hostname@@',

    which I had to change it to the line below in order to get the filter machine to use the ldap server running on the mailbox machine for amavisd.

    hostname => '@@ldap_host@@',

    When I installed zimbra on the filter machine, I told it to not setup ldap service and gave it the address of the second server as the ldap host. Apparently, that change was not applied to the amavisd.conf.in file. So I am wondering if I did something wrong or this might be a bug in zimbra installation script.

    Secondly, how do I set up the filter machine to deliver processed messages to the zimbra server containing the mail stores?

    Default Yes, a bug

    That is a bug, and your fix is correct.

    As for the filter machine setup - the mail delivery should be automatic (it knows which mail host each account resides on, and delivers to the correct host via lmtp).

    Default zimbraMailHost

    For an account on the store server, run:
    zmprov ga <account> | grep zimbraMailHost
    and verify that this value is set to the name of the mail store server. (The server running tomcat, etc).

    If it is set correctly, verify that the mta server can resolve that hostname, and can reach it on the lmtp port (7025).

    Also - is there a relay_host parameter set on your mta?

    Default

    Thank you. It was working, I just did not realize that my test messages went into Junk folder.

    I do not have relay_host set on the mta (the filter machine). Should I?

    Default relay_host

    You don't need a relay_host set, unless you don't want your MTA to resolve MX records for outgoing mail, instead delivering them all to one server (which will then do the MX lookups.)

    This is most often used when you've got an internal MTA passing mail to an edge server, which handles all outgoing mail - or, when you've got an ISP who won't let you out on port 25, so you pass all mail to their mail server.
