    Default Zimbra 8.0.2 + Exchange as INTERNAL mta with authentication instead postfix

    Good evening!

    We are trying to set up zimbra to use exchange instead postifix to send internal and external mails ( it's not the definitive solution, we need it for migration purpose).


    Actually the server ( 192.168.9.30 ) is configured this way:

    Code:
    Internal MTA : local postfix ( 192.168.9.30 )
    Relay host : mail.rotas.com ( is uses authentication , we used this tutorial http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Outgoing_SMTP_Authentication )
    Everything is working great, internal mail ok, external too.
    The problem is that we have also an exchange server, we are trying to kill it ( XD ). To keep internal and external mail sincronized we'd like to send EVERYTHING via exchange. Just for a while, when the migration is ok we will return to the default config.

    The target configuration:

    Code:
    Internal MTA: exchange (192.168.9.26 )
    PROBLEM: exchange needs authentication. How can i provide auth to exchange when sending mails?
    I'm getting mad to find a link or a tutorial to do this.

    EDIT: Forgive my ugly english, i'm italian

    You already have the link in your post to a wiki article about Authenticating via a relay server, what's wrong with those instructions?

    Ty very much for the response,

    the problem is that this wiki is about autenticating via relay, not for local MTA, i'd like to bypass postfix, so every config from this wiki will be bypassed too.
    Am i wrong?

    Hi,

    If you want to relay all mail from Zimbra into Exchange, just prepare the following info :

    1. Exchange IP or hostname
    2. One of Exchange user account and password (will be used for authentication for all mail relay)

    Then, just do what described on Outgoing SMTP Authentication - Zimbra :: Wiki . Don't forget to use the instruction for 8.x.x instead.
    Best Regards

    Hi! ty very much you too,

    i have to explain the complete problem:

    A) mail.rotas.com external server with all users

    B) 192.168.9.26 exchange server that fetches mail from mail.rotas.com and sends only external mail via mail.rotas.com ( internal mails stays internal )
    exchange has the same users that exists in mail.rotas.com

    C) 192.168.9.30 zimbra server with just few users ( lets say beta tester )

    the problem is that if i send a mail, for example, to blabla@rotas.com from zimbra it tries to deliver it locally and fails because blabla@rotas.com doesn't exists on zimbra ( blabla@rotas.com exists on mail.rotas.com and on exchange ) .
    all the external smtp stuffs applies only for external mail, for example to gnegne@gmail.com.

    Am i wrong?
