    Default Simple way to add a real domain

    I have set up zimbra zcs-6.0.7_GA_2473.UBUNTU8_64.20100616212156 on my local LAN (domain.local). Zimbra server is running up fine for the local domain. Now i want to add an external domain (domain.com). Zimbra has a FQDN of mail.domain.local and is running behind a router with NAT set-up. I've added an MX record for domain.com which points to the router (mail.domain.com), on the router i've set up to forward 25 port to Zimbra (mail.domain.local). So what are the steps required on Zimbra to make it receive mail for domain.com and send all external mail using @domain.com addresses?

    You can add the domains and users in the Admin Console in your browser or via zmprov in an SSH session to the server. You can get to the admin console via:

    https://yourserver.domain.com:7071

    Of course, you'll either have to forward port 7071 from the outside, or use it only from inside your network.

    Well yes i've read the manual. So it's simple as that. Simply add a new domain (domain.com) in the web admin, add users and we are done?

    Yup!

    That and add appropriate MX records for your server to your domain.

    Yes, it really is as simple as that. You will, of course, need external DNS records for that domain if people are going to send mail to it.
