    I'm not sure what you mean. Can you provide an example of what you are trying to accomplish?

    Mail gateway as in outbound mail has to be relayed through another mail server? There's a few docs in the wiki for that.

    Mail gateway as in delivers to a separate mail server and you want to pull mail down from that server? You could just have that mail server forward mail destined for your users. Or, you could have the server pull down mail for each user via POP or IMAP, but I'd have to be pretty desperate before doing that..

    Default explanation

    Iīm using Mdaemon email server for windows īcause like i say i donīt have my own domain so i deliver my email to de primary server and it routes to outside and the protocol in Mdaemon is POP3 to recive mail and send by SMTP, in the Zimbra configuration i saw an external MTA but i donīt know if it match with windows MTA

    Why don't you replace MDaemon with a Zimbra server, what's the point in having two mail servers? You don't actually need to relay through another server, Zimbra will deliver via SMTP.

    Yes, it does only better (but I would say that). If you're fetching mail from an external (ISP) account then use fetchmail (search the forums for details) to get the email and drop it in the users accounts. You might eventually want to consider getting yourself a domain name, it will save you having to depend on your current mailbox for mail and if you use a hosted DNS service you'd also have a mail server backup if yours is offline.

    OK, but you can still send mail directly or relay through your ISPs mail server (which will save you from getting blacklisted). So the answer is still, yes it will do what you need. Have a look through the forums, there are a few threads from people in the same position as you but if you have further questions then ask away.
    Regards
