    Default [SOLVED] Delivery Restrictions

    I host my own personal e-mail using MS Exchange Server currently. I am wanting to change away from Microsoft and like the looks of Zimbra.

    My kids are young and I have given them limited e-mail to start. Basically, I restrict their accounts so that only mail from a pre-defined list of e-mail addresses are accepted when sent to their e-mail addresses. But, other accounts (mine, the wife's, etc.) receive everything that isn't rejected as spam.

    Is this possible in Zimbra?

    (In Exchange Server, under the Exchange General tab, Delivery Restrictions button, I choose "Accept Messages Only From" and then add the addresses they can receive from, such as grandparents, cousins, certain friends, etc.)

    Thanks,

    Kazooless

    If you are like me and you want to restrict based access to distribution list based on IP address, here are the minor mods to make it work rather then using the from address of the sender.

    Start at the WIKI and get that example working http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?tit...tfixRecipients

    Once you realize it has the problem of email address spoofing you can implement the IP restriction access instead.

    The only changes necessary are to change a line added to /etc/zimbra/postfix/conf/main.cf, the permitted_senders_list, change it to the type of check_client_access rather then check_sender_access. Then in your permitted_senders file add a line for each IP you wish to allow access to the distribution list.

    192.168.1.20 OK
    192.168.3.20 OK

    I didn't try a cidr: type table but it would probably work fine with a check_client_access macro.

    Unhappy

    Very sad to see that Z6 with all the ACL goodness still didn't get this functionality.
