    Default [SOLVED] zimbraMailTransport vs zimbraSmtpHostname

    Hello,

    I've my mailbox server configured with zimbraSmtpHostname to example.com, and i've changed a user to use zimbraMailTransport to smtpther.place.com:25

    I've restarted zimbra, but messages from user keep going trough example.com. Is this supposed to be this way? Is the zimbraSmtpHostname supposed to take precedence over zimbraMailTransport? I thought it should be the other way around...

    Any insight woul be appreciated.

    regards,

    Please update your forum profile with the output of the following command (do not post the output in this thread):

    Code:
    zmcontrol -v
    Perhaps you can tell us why you've made those changes and what you're trying to achieve?
    Regards

    Hello phoenix,

    Sorry about that by this is my first post here :$

    Also I've manage different ZCS and all with different version :'(

    But I've update only the one related to this problem.

    So regarding the problem, i did this to a specific user:

    zmprov ma user zimbraMailTransport smtputgoing.dc.example.com:25

    But my zmprov gs mailbox1.example.com | grep -i smtp
    zimbraSmtpHostname: mta1.dc.example.com
    zimbraSmtpPort: 25
    zimbraSmtpSendPartial: FALSE
    zimbraSmtpTimeout: 60

    Take a note that outgoing isn't a zimbra server, so to speak, it's a simple postfix, which accepts to be my relay.

    mta1 is a zimbra server which mainly purpose is to receive and send e-mail, and spam/virus processing.

    My purpose is to have some specific users to to be relayed through a separated server. I thought that was the purpose of zimbraMailTransport in the account definitions? But I don't know which takes precendence.

    Also I do those commands on the mailbox server (I have a multiserver deployment).

    Thanks for all the help.

    zimbraSmtpHostname = for outgoing mails
    zimbraMailTransport = for incoming mails
