    You may want to help the Zimbra people by including any settings in your config files. Just saying it doesn't work isn't of much help.

    Did you use the verbose and/or debug flags? The results would help you and Zimbra.

    Yes, it doesn't work with some clients. What client are you trying to use?

    Try 'man mailto'. The 'man' command allows you to see things about a command like flags, support files, what it's meant to do, it's version number and how to run it.

    I tried to send mail with mutt now ... didn't work
    I think the problem is that the os does not recognize to use zimbra as MTA.

    Ok ... found the solution ...

    simply added a symlink for sendmail to /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/sendmail

    bye

    Mutt worked for me, well it connected and the crashed when opening the INBOX. It would probably work if I spent some time on it.
    It should work for you too although using a version of links with ssl support would probably be easier if you must stick to text based email.
