Article Information

This article applies to the following ZCS versions.
  ZCS 7.0 Article  ZCS 7.0


In ZCS 7.x, you now have the ability to protect your distributions lists (DL) from unwanted senders.

First you need to enable the Milter service.


zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMilterServerEnabled TRUE

zmmailboxdctl restart

zmmtactl restart

Please check if all services are running now as expected. If the output of


zmcontrol status

is something like

zmcontrol status
Host zimbra.expample.com
        antispam                Running
        antivirus               Running
        convertd                Running
        ldap                    Running
        logger                  Running
        mailbox                 Running
        mta                     Stopped
                zmmilterctl is not running
        snmp                    Running
        spell                   Running
        stats                   Running
        zmconfigd               Running

you can start the Milter Server with it's own command:

zmmilterctl start

Now all necessary services should be up and running. You can double check this in the Admin GUI.

If you already have a DL, create an access control list giving members of the DL the ability to send messages to the DL, and only members of the DL.


zmprov grr dl list@domain.com grp list@domain.com sendToDistList

Check the permissions of a member address in the list.


zmprov ckr dl list@domain.com jsmith@domain.com sendToDistList
