    Default Disclaimer

    I've installed the Domain Disclaimer Extension v0.0.2 on my system which is CentOS 5.1 w/ GA 5.0.2 FOSS. By default, it did not work until I manually created the disclaimer file for my domain. So, the disclaimer does work but only on original emails I create, not emails I reply to.

    I then tried to install the 0.0.3 version but then I run into bigger issues... at least they are bigger to me. Below is the error message I get:

    Code:
    [zimbra@abe zimbra_altermime_0.0.3]$ zmprov md abe.lambesis.com zimbraDomainPrefMailSignatureEnabled TRUE
    ERROR: account.INVALID_ATTR_NAME (invalid attr name: [LDAP: error code 17 - zimbraDomainPrefMailSignatureEnabled: attribute type undefined])
    The above commands worked fine using v0.0.2 but w/ 0.0.3 it fails. Under v.0.0.2 the disclaimer admin extension does nothing. While I am able to change the disclaimer via the GUI, its not reflected anywhere other than in the GUI. I had to manually create the file /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/disclaimers/abe.lambesis.com. Using the v0.0.3 I never get this far as the LDAP schema is not liking me.

    I must admit I'm surprised the disclaimer feature isn't a default feature set in Zimbra as many orgs require it now... as much as we hate it!

    So now what? This is a test install so I'm free to mess it up for now. any thoughts?

    UPDATE:
    I used the 0.0.2 LDAP schema file with the 0.0.3 installer. It works, but again I still have to manually create my disclaimer text file. I find that if I send a new email from my zimbra server, it correctly adds the disclaimer, however if I am replying to an email, it does not. I'm wondering if this is more of an issue with AlterMIME than anything else. Does anyone else have any experience w/ getting this to work 100% of the time? We currently use Postini to handle the global domain disclaimer but if possible, I would like to do it inhouse with Zimbra and save some $$.

    Great! Please let me know what I can do on my end. Its running on a test server so I can beat it up with no issues. I spent some time yesterday making changes and testing the postfix master.cf file but with no luck. I thought maybe the email had to be re-injected a different way when it was replied to.

    In my environment my email server is on a public IP address and uses the same IP for incoming and outgoing email. My master.cf looks like:

    Code:
    smtp    inet    n	-	n	-	-	smtpd
       -o content_filter=dfilt:
    dfilt   unix    -	n	n	-	-	pipe
       flags=Rq user=zimbra argv=/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/disclaimer -f ${sender} -- ${recipient}

    FYI-
    We've had some support cases on that disclaimer. Please be advised that you use it as your own risk

    Your master.cf looks OK, now you can check:

    * /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/disclaimer -> permisions
    * /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/disclaimers/ -> domain files...
