    Your question is different than the title of your thread, that's not Zimbra acting as a relay server. So, what exactly are you trying to do? Why do you not get the email delivered directly to your Zimbra server (that would be the best solution)?

    Hi Bill,

    We have a contract for 3years which is already paid to Hosting provider,thats why i want to make a local server with Zimbra to send and receive mails where i can have one copy of mail and backup.

    Problem is all users are deleting mails while they are leaving the company because we are not able to take backup of mails with Hosting provider.


    thanks
    Raj

    Here's what will work.
    As I understand it the problem is: when ppl leave before they resign, they delete all emails. Currently all emails are at your ISP.

    You want: a way to have a copy of all emails whether sent/received. when they leave, their delete is of no impact.

    Here's a partial solution

    I would not give them ISP email access.
    I would setup a local zimbra that I let them use.
    I then setup their email at the isp, say user@domain.com
    Zimbra runs on domain.org
    At ISP I forward a copy of everything that comes in to their zimbra account, user@domain.org

    Now, when they leave, all they have access to is zimbra. If they delete all zimbra email so what. You can get it back via the ISP account. This solution however doesn't account for the Sent emails.

    If you backup zimbra daily, which you should, if they delete emails, you can get it back. That get's you everything in their account.

    Solved, not pretty but, solved

    Good luck with this

    Setup your zimbra server with split dns - install fetchmail program - configure fetchmail to poll at specific interval from isp server to local user something like this:
    Code:
    poll pop.someprovider.tld protocol POP3 user "user1@domain.com" there with password "secret" is user1@domain.com here keep
    this might work.

    1. Having a copy of all received email
    ------------------------------------
    Don't give users access to email via your ISP
    Configure Zimbra to not delete emails from ISP server when POP
    Take that option away. I think you can in COS


    Capturing all sent email
    ------------------------
    I don't know what to tell you about the sent mail folder under zimbra
    I know you should be backing up Zimbra and if you do you have a copy of all users sent mail
