    Default Domain mail delivery setup query

    Hi Folks

    I need to be able to setup the Zimbra server so that, on a domain by domain basis, I can:

    1 - Forward mail for anythingelse@domain.com to the Internet.

    For example, I have a domain called domain.com and a user called Chris

    Chris sends a mail to Cindy@domain.com but Cindy's mailbox is on another server - not the local Zimbra server. This message will fail at the moment with a "user unknown" on the local server.

    I need to somehow set up the server so that, when the local user, at the same domain, is not on the local server, instead of bouncing the message the server will deliver it to the Internet.

    This is possible with every other mail server software I've ever used but I cannot find where to set this up in Zimbra. If I had hair right now I'd be pulling it out!

    Can someone help?

    Cheers
    Chris

    No takers on this one?

    All I need is a method where, if a mail is sent to a user in the same domain as the senders domain (I.e. a local domain) and the user doesn't exist on the local server, then rather than bounce the message, the server should be able to be told to send the message out to the Internet.

    Hope someone knows how to do this as its really critical to our operation.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Bill that's outstanding - thank you VERY much! I've followed the wiki article and made the changes and all appears to be working brilliantly well. Much obliged!

    Cheers

    Hey Bill

    Another quick thought - would this only work for the one domain or can one do this split for as many domains as we like?

    Cheers

    There should be no reason why this wouldn't work for multiple domains.

    Superb - I'll create a domain and give it a go.

    Thanks again, Bill.

    Hi Bill

    Yessir - it works. Great - that gives us some leeway when we're migrating users from old mail server to the new one and it means they can migrate over days/weeks and keep the domain split until they're done.

    Do you know whether there is an access file where we can ban/reject incoming connections from IP addresses, mail addresses or domains? I remember in Sendmail it's in /etc/mail/access but I can't find one for the new server and it doesn't appear to come up in the documentation.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Glad it's all working.

    Is this to restrict spam or something else?
