    What does your question have to do with the title? There's also a total lack of information from the log files. Why do you have the proxy (memcached, imapproxy) running on this server (assuming it's a single server - you should never run the proxy on a single server) and why do you actually have zmmilterctl set to start? Search the forums for details of how to stop/remove the unnecessary services.
    Regards

    Yes, as I said above, search the forums for details of what you need to do. Why did you install them in the first place?

    I did some mistake during installation, I did some search so I can up with some post and I'm confuse with this command which is right?

    zmprov ms server.example.com -zimbraServiceEnabled imapproxy

    zmprov -l ms server.domain.com -zimbraServiceEnabled imapproxy

    I am currently running one mail server (Release 7.1.3_GA_3346.RHEL5_64_20110928134520 RHEL5_64 FOSS edition, Patch 7.1.3_P1), over a RHEL Server release 5.5.
    Our company (it's a tiny one), has been having problems with other mail servers which catalog our messages as SPAM.
    I decided to install OpenDKIM to ensure some way to stop this behavior, so I followed all the instructions in the forums, even changed the listening ports for the milter server and it worked. Now our server is signing and verifying DKIM signatures.
    Everything worked fine, until today. Today, I made a "zmcontrol status" and I got this:
    Host mail.******************.**
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    imapproxy Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    memcached Running
    mta Stopped
    zmmilterctl is not running
    snmp Running
    spell Running
    stats Running
    zmconfigd Running

    Nonetheless, postfix seems to be still running and delivering messages as usual and OpenDKIM is still working but I'm worried about the problems I may have in the near future.
    I noticed memcached and imapproxy were installed, so I uninstalled them. But some (not all) of my Outlook clients won't work, so I reinstalled and re-enabled these services and my Outlook clients worked fine again.
    I surfed around the control panel, and I found in Global Settings a small section called Milter Server, which seems to listen on port 7026 (my OpenDKIM currently listens on port 8891) and is disabled. This section is not documented.

    - Could that be the reason of the status message?
    - If so, is there any way to enable it?

    I really appreciate your help.

    Muchas gracias.
    KMinamoto

    *** UPDATE ***
    I tried 'zmprov gcf zimbraMilterBindPort' which showed me: zimbraMilterBindPort: 7026
    I tried then:
    1) 'zmprov mcf zimbraMilterBindPort: 8891' // changing the milter listening port to 8891
    2) 'zmmtactl stop && zmmtactl start' // restart mta service
    3) Then I went to the CP >> Global Settings >> MTA >> Milter Server, and now Milter Server Bind Port showed 8891, but Enable Milter Server was unchecked.
    4) Checked the box and saved config.
    5) I did a zmcontrol status but I still get the same message:
    mta Stopped
    zmmilterctl is not running


    The mail service seems to work still fine.
    Thank you very much! ^_^'

    Did you reset all the ports (you need to) after removing memcached and the imapproxy?

    @phoenix, thnx for the quick reply.
    I guess I didn't reset the ports.
    But why did only a few Outlook clients fail and the rest kept working fine? I'll give it a try when nobody's at the office.
    Thank you once again.

    OK, I disabled and uninstalled memcached and imapproxy and reseted the ports, then restarted zimbra.
    But I still get the same error.
    mta Stopped
    zmmilterctl is not running
    Is it me or anybody has the very same problem?

    BTW, where do I change my zimbra version in the profile?

    Thnx in advance,
    KMinamoto

    Go to the Admin UI and uncheck the option that enables the milter service. You should also check the log files to see why the MTA isn't starting, for example do you have another mail server running?

    You update that via your forum profile.
