    Default How do I disable sending and receiving?

    Hi folks,

    I need to disable sending and receiving e-mail from our Zimbra installation :-( The college I work for has merged with another and for the time being we want to allow staff 'read only' access to the 'old' Zimbra installation. That is they can read their old e-mails but not send or receive any new mail.

    Understandably the documentation doesn't help me much with this so I'd appreciate any assistance.

    Cheers

    Huw

    How about blocking port 25 at the firewall, or using iptables on the zimbra server to do the same. That would stop inbound connections, and prevent people from being able to mail out.

    Hi All,

    Is there a simpler way of disabling sending and receiving e-mails? I understand that blocking the firewall disables the capability to send and receive e-mails from external to internal and internal to external network. I am looking into disabling internal to internal mail routing for the users to just be able to retrieve their remaining emails in Zimbra mailbox. Thanks in advance!

    While you were waiting for an answer did you search the forums or wiki because this has been answered many times and there's even wiki article about it - search the wiki for the word "restrict".

    I'm resurrecting this thread because I have a similiar problem and don't see a satisfying solution.

    We too need to shut down our Zimbra server due to a merger and would like to keep it alive read-only. That means, no one should send or receive mails, internally or externally, or create calendar entries, etc. I see the wiki entries that explain how to restrict sending to certain domains or restrict postfix recipients. I understand that I could just use empty files for the lists of allowed senders/recipients to effectively block all mail. Does Zimbra honor this for internal mails as well?
    But what I'd really like is to have all of a user's folders to act like they were read-only shares. Unfortunately modifyFolderGrant does not work on a folder's owner...
