    Default questions on couple things :)

    hi guys. so far so good! just have some questions.

    1. When I check Server Status, I see an X mark on logger. how do i activate it?

    2. I currently use hsphere MTA as primary and have selected emails forward to the zimbra server. For my main domain for example, I have sales@domain.com and support@domain.com hosted in hsphere server. For userA@domain.com and userB@domain.com all email is forwarded to Zimbra Server (both users are created on both hsphere and zimbra, and I just instruct hsphere to forward all mails for these users to mailhost.domain.com which is created in zimbra). however, if UserA@domain.com logs into zimbra webmail and tries to email sales@domain.com (which is in hsphere only) I get an error saying the email address is invalid...how do I get zimbra to send all emails to domain.com to the mx server instead of assuming it's local? I can email from sales@domain.com to usaA@domain.com but not the other way around.

    3. My trial will expire soon. How do I get a license. We are a webhosting company Please PM me.

    It should be activated already, what does a zmcontrol status show?

    You should be using a Split Domain set-up, are you? Do you also have the option 'Enable DNS lookups' set?

    So does this mean I can't get around this problem by having certain emails forward to mailhost.zimbrabox.com?

    Also, can someone in sales send me an email? I need to purchase an ISP license

    email sales@zimbra.com (zimbra employees aren't required to use the forums)

    This section of the split domain doc:
    1. The secondary system(zimbra) needs to accept mail for accounts that are hosted on the secondary(zimbra), but must forward all other mail for accounts on this domain to the primary system(other).

    On a zimbra server, you can accomplish this piece of mail routing with these commands:
    $ zmprov md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @example.com
    $ zmprov md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @example.com
    $ zmprov md example.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:mailotherserver.example.com

    -The first two commands (in combination) tell the Zimbra postfix to accept all addresses in the @example.com domain as valid addresses.
    -The third command establishes default mail routing for the domain. Any users that do not exist on the Zimbra system will have their mail routed according to this rule. Be sure to use the local name if you have one, else the email will route out, then back in through your firewall, thus getting a new IP address; If this other server is configured to only accept connections/relay from local servers, this will cause it to drop the connection.

    2. We also highly recommend that, in a secondary Zimbra system, you turn off DNS lookups and internet wide message routing from the secondary host and route all mail through the primary. You can accomplish this by:
    $ zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRelayHost mailotherserver.example.com
    $ zmprov mcf zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled FALSE

    Make sure to configure mailotherserver.example.com to
    • accept mail relayed by zimbra.example.com.
    • forward mail to zimbra.example.com for accounts hosted on zimbra. (which you already said you have done)
    3. After completing the above configurations, run these commands:
    $ postfix stop
    $ postfix start

    thanks mmorse.

    $ zmprov md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @example.com
    $ zmprov md example.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @example.com
    $ zmprov md example.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:mail.example.com

    what do these commands mean? also, I disabled ssh access to my servers so I have no means to use ssh...can I do these commands via gui?

    thanks

    refresh this thread/see the wiki doc (I wrote/edited in better descriptions after my original post)

    The ZCS Admin Console GUI-no
    If you meant GUI from your server (like if you have physical access/vnc of some sort):
    open a terminal
    su zimbra (or su - zimbra)
    then the commands
