    Default Webmail sends SMTP from external IP, not localhost

    I am trying to implement an AlterMIME script into zimbra (so I can add a disclaimer to outgoing mail).

    The postfix master.cf script looks like this:
    Code:
    192.168.0.1:smtp    inet  n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
    127.0.0.1:smtp      inet  n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
       -o content_filter=dfilt:
    dfilt   unix    -       n       n       -       -       pipe
       flags=Rq user=filter argv=/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/disclaimer -f ${sender} -- ${recipient}
    (where 192.168.0.1 is my external IP)

    IWhen sending mail from an IMAP client, the script works fine, but not when sending from the web client. When I swap the IPs in the script, the opposite is true. How can I get the web client to send from localhost and not from the external IP?

    I tried going into the Admin UI and changing "Web mail MTA Hostname:" to localhost, but that just prevented me from sending externally.

    Actually, that isn't the external IP of your server it's a LAN IP. The details on the wiki page tell you to put the IP address of your server in that location, is that the IP of your Zimbra server?

    Both. The external IP is the same as the internal IP. Our zimbra server is configured on a DMZ on our firewall for now.
