    Default Mailstore port

    I think I have a fairly easy question this time. I have my MTA on one server and my Mailbox on another. I'm able to send mail to other domains just fine, however if I send mail to my domain it all ends up in the deferred queue. They all say the same thing, and the names have been changed to protect the innocent.

    "Reason: delivery temporarily suspended: connect to mailbox.example.com[192.168.1.2]: connection refused"

    So my question is simple. What port is this occuring on so that I can open it?

    I tried looking in /opt/zimbra/log on the MTA server for more detail but this is all I found.

    clamd.log
    freshclam.log
    spamtrain.log
    swatch.pid
    zmlogprocess.pid
    zmmtaconfig.log
    zmmtaconfig.pid

    have a look in /var/log/zimbra.log, that should give you the mta errors. check you can telnet to port 25 on mailstore.

    No, I cannot telnet to port 25 on the Mailbox server. The Mailbox server is not running MTA, and thus should not have port 25 open. A trusty "netstat -a" reveals that port 25 is in fact closed.

    Over what port is an incoming email transferred from the MTA server to the Mailbox server?

    Thanks for the log info, I was wondering where MTA activity was logged.
    The guide also refers to it as the Mailbox server, not the Mailstore server as I had called it. Sorry for any confusion.

    So, you need to figure out why postfix isn't running.
    Please post

    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol status
    post that

    and

    tail -200 /var/log/zimbra.log
    tail -200 /opt/zimbra/logs/mailbox.log

    postfix delivers mail locally via LMTP. I believe the standard LMTP port is 7025.

    (I'm assuming that you're not having issues passing messages through amavis locally on the MTA box.)

    Yes! That's the magic number! Thank you. I opened that port and it's working fine now.

    It was rather frustrating that the error message wasn't giving me a port number. If it's not mentioned in the multi-server install guide already (I couldn't find it), it should be mentioned that the Mailbox server must have port 7025 open to receive email. I would suspect that anyone installing a multi-server configuration on a secured network would have the same issue.

    The ports used by ZImbra are mentioned in the wiki.

    Cool, that's helpful.

    Now, how is your typical new installer supposed to find that? Knowing about it wouldn't have prevented my problem, but it would have greatly narrowed down the number of potentials.
