    Default [SOLVED] Licensing and external mail transport accounts

    Can anyone with a commercial version of Zimbra verify if an external mail transport account eats up one of your user licenses?

    I have an off server mailman server with about 11 lists on it, per the integration guide on the wiki ZCS Mailman Integration - Zimbra :: Wiki It uses external mail transport accounts to get the mail to the correct server. Because each list has 10 different addresses for different functions I have 110 accounts on my zimbra open source server. I am looking to move over to one of the commercial servers, but won't be able to swing the cost if I have to pay for 10 licenses for each external mail transport account.

    I tried using an alias to point to an external account, like you can use a contact in exchange, however the alias only allows you to point to an internal account.

    I would use internal distribution lists, however they don't offer non admin management or non-account management.

    Perfect, thank you.

    I will see if I can update the wiki with the new commands needed:

    zmprov ccr <email address> <password> displayName <Display Name> zimbraCalResType Location zimbraMailTransport smtp:<server address>:25

    Thanks again!
