A good reference to understanding exactly what these options mean and do is the [http://www.postfix.org/SASL_README.html SASL_READ] at the postfix.org site. I'll include the highlights below.

When you check, "Enable Authentication" [remember its specific to SASL] in the admin console and reload postfix you will then see the AUTH line when you do the telnet test above and AUTH will say LOGIN and PLAIN. AUTH supports a number of different types of protocols:  PLAIN LOGIN DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 GSSAPI. Zimbra only supports the use of LOGIN and PLAIN though.
+
====For ESMTP Auth is Plain - Example====
  
What is LOGIN and PLAIN and the difference?
+
Moved to [[Simple_Troubleshooting_For_SMTP_Via_Telnet_And_Openssl#For_ESMTP_Auth_is_Plain_-_Example]]
  
<pre>
+
====For TLS/SSL - Example====
--enable-login  You wish to support the Outlook Express
 
                  5.x client, which uses the non-standard,
 
                  undocumented LOGIN protocol.  Passwords
 
                  are passed over the wire in the clear.
 
                  This is disabled by default.
 
--disable-plain  Do not use the PLAIN protocol, which
 
                  sends the password in plaintext.  This
 
                  is enabled by default and should only
 
                  be used for testing unless you are
 
                  encrypting the session via TLS, IPsec,
 
                  or other mechanism.
 
</pre>
 
  
So, the above might be alarming. The postfix SASL_README gives us some context though, '''''"Plaintext mechanisms (PLAIN, LOGIN) send credentials unencrypted. This information should be protected by an additional security layer such as a TLS-encrypted SMTP session (see: [http://www.postfix.org/TLS_README.html TLS_README])."''''' Also note, both PLAIN and LOGIN use BASE64 encoding of the username and password but those strings can be ran through a mime-decoder to discover what they are. You see this in my telnet examples below.

Moved to [[Simple_Troubleshooting_For_SMTP_Via_Telnet_And_Openssl#For_TLS.2FSSL_-_Example]]
  
The other variable/options for the '''"Postfix SMTP Server policy - SASL mechanism properties"''' you will need to know about are:

** smtpd_sasl_tls_security_options = [note, this can reuse smtpd_sasl_security_options with $smtpd_sasl_security_options]
 
*** noanonymous Don't use mechanisms that permit anonymous authentication.
 
**** Always set at least the noanonymous option. Otherwise, the Postfix SMTP server can give strangers the same authorization as a properly-authenticated client.
 
*** noplaintext Don't use mechanisms that transmit unencrypted username and password information.

'''Mail relay authorization options to know are:''' [http://www.postfix.org/SASL_README.html [From the SASL_READ]] With permit_sasl_authenticated the Postfix SMTP server can allow SASL-authenticated SMTP clients to send mail to remote destinations. Examples:
+
====To Confirm An Auth User Can't Send With Another FROM Address====
<pre>
 
    # With Postfix 2.10 and later, the mail relay policy is
 
    # preferably specified under smtpd_relay_restrictions.
 
    /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/main.cf:
 
        smtpd_relay_restrictions =
 
    permit_mynetworks
 
    permit_sasl_authenticated
 
    reject_unauth_destination
 
  
    # Older configurations combine relay control and spam control under
+
Moved to [[Simple_Troubleshooting_For_SMTP_Via_Telnet_And_Openssl#To_Confirm_An_Auth_User_Can.27t_Send_With_Another_FROM_Address]]
    # smtpd_recipient_restrictions. To use this example with Postfix ≥
 
    # 2.10 specify "smtpd_relay_restrictions=".
 
    /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/main.cf:
 
        smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
 
    permit_mynetworks
 
    permit_sasl_authenticated
 
    reject_unauth_destination
 
    ...other rules...
 
</pre>
 
  
'''Envelope sender address authorization options:'''  [http://www.postfix.org/SASL_README.html [From the SASL_READ]] By default an SMTP client may specify any envelope sender address in the MAIL FROM command. That is because the Postfix SMTP server only knows the remote SMTP client hostname and IP address, but not the user who controls the remote SMTP client.
+
===Adding A New MTA Server===
  
This changes the moment an SMTP client uses SASL authentication. Now, the Postfix SMTP server knows who the sender is. Given a table of envelope sender addresses and SASL login names, the Postfix SMTP server can decide if the SASL authenticated client is allowed to use a particular envelope sender address:
+
Basic instructions can be found here:
<pre>
+
* http://www.zimbra.com/docs/ne/latest/multi_server_install/toc.html
    /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/main.cf:
+
** See "Installing Zimbra MTA on a Server"
        virtual_mailbox_maps = proxy:ldap:/opt/zimbra/conf/ldap-vmm.cf
 
        smtpd_sender_login_maps = $virtual_mailbox_maps
 
  
        smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
+
Additional instructions needed beyond the above will follow as I hear about them.
            ...
 
            reject_sender_login_mismatch
 
    permit_sasl_authenticated
 
            ...
 
</pre>
 
The controlled_envelope_senders table specifies the binding between a sender envelope address and the SASL login names that own that address [see above, ZCS will have in main.cf a line showing virtual_mailbox_maps = proxy:ldap:/opt/zimbra/conf/ldap-vmm.cf]:
 
<pre>
 
    /opt/zimbra/conf/ldap-vmm.cf
 
        server_host = ldap://zcs723.EXAMPLE.com:389
 
        server_port = 389
 
        search_base =
 
        query_filter = (&(zimbraMailDeliveryAddress=%s)(zimbraMailStatus=enabled))
 
        result_attribute = zimbraMailDeliveryAddress
 
        version = 3
 
        start_tls = yes
 
        tls_ca_cert_dir = /opt/zimbra/conf/ca
 
        bind = yes
 
        bind_dn = uid=zmpostfix,cn=appaccts,cn=zimbra
 
        bind_pw = XXXXXXXXXXX
 
        timeout = 30
 
</pre>
 
  
A default postfix install [non-ZCS] might have something like:
+
===Load Balancing For SMTP - Out Bound Mail===
<pre>
 
    /etc/postfix/controlled_envelope_senders
 
        # envelope sender          owners (SASL login names)
 
        john@example.com            john@example.com
 
        helpdesk@example.com        john@example.com, mary@example.com
 
        postmaster                  admin@example.com
 
        @example.net                barney, fred, john@example.com, mary@example.com
 
</pre>
 
With this, the reject_sender_login_mismatch restriction above will reject the sender address in the MAIL FROM command if smtpd_sender_login_maps does not specify the SMTP client's login name as an owner of that address.
 
  
See also reject_authenticated_sender_login_mismatch and reject_unauthenticated_sender_login_mismatch for additional control over the SASL login name and the envelope sender.
+
Currently, '''5.x code''', you have the following options:
  
====Second - Encoding Username And Passwords For AUTH Sequence====
+
* Configure zimbraMtaRelayHost and zimbraSmtpHostname [[Ajcody-Server-Topics#Using_Different_SMTP_Server_For_Webclient_.28ZWC.29.2C_Mobiles.2C_And_ZCO|zimbraSmtpHostname Details]] to:
  
Here is an example of getting the base64 encoding for a username and also how to check if the encoding was correct. This might expose how special characters threw off the encoding.
+
** An external load balancing device that will then split the traffic behind it
 +
** Setup a round-robin A record situation in your DNS for the external mta's you'll be using.
  
<pre>
+
In, '''GNR/6.x''', you are able to add multiple targets to the variables and we'll have some degree of "balancing" between them.

====For ESMTP Auth is LOGIN - Example====

See [[User_Alias_Mapping_and_Mail_Transport_with_Postfix_%26_LDAP]]
  
If you are using TLS you will need to encrypt your username & password before transiting it.
+
====Multiple LDAP Servers?====
  
For Auth is LOGIN you'll need to get the login encoding as described above. When AUTH is Login, it requires username and password to be separate :

If you are using TLS you will need to encrypt your username & password before transiting it.
+
              With OpenLDAP, a (list of) LDAP URLs can be used to
 +
              specify both the hostname(s) and the port(s):
  
When AUTH is PLAIN, the username and password will be in the same encoding. For example [I've mangled the hash below by the way]:
+
                  server_host = ldap://ldap.example.com:1444
 +
                              ldap://ldap2.example.com:1444
  
  perl -MMIME::Base64 -e 'print encode_base64("\000ajcody\@zcs723.EXAMPLE.com\000mypassword");'

              All LDAP URLs accepted by the OpenLDAP library are
  AGFqY29keUB6Y3M3MjMXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX5MzkzMWQxbQ==
+
              supported,  including  connections over UNIX domain
 +
              sockets, and LDAP SSL (the last one  provided  that
 +
              OpenLDAP was compiled with support for SSL):

====For TLS/SSL - Example====
+
Please see:
  
Basic telnet does not support SSL or TLS, so you have to use openssl or stunnel to make your connection to the smtp server. To connect to a server using TLS/SSL run something like this:
+
* [http://www.zimbra.com/forums/installation/18171-solved-setting-up-email-response-aliases-non-system-domains.html#post92121 Changing The From Field]
  
openssl s_client -starttls smtp -crlf -connect zcs723.EXAMPLE.com:25
+
====Related BUG/RFE's====
  
Now you can run one of the above telnet sessions like you had before. You will most likely still need to log in.

* port 465
 
** smtps [mta] - incoming mail to postfix over ssl '''(Outlook only)'''
 
* port 587
 
** smtp [mta] - Mail '''submission port''' over tls
 
* "RFC 3207 specifies only the well-known port 25 and the "Submission port," which is TCP port 587, for the STARTTLS command, the precursor for an encrypted SMTP session using TLS. It makes no mention of the unofficial port 465." [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Mail_Transfer_Protocol SMTP on Wikipedia]

===Rewriting From Address For Outbound Email===
  
References on Port 465:

Please see [[ManagingDomains#Domain_Masquerading]]
 +
 
 +
===Rewrite Recipient Address For Incoming Email===
  
* http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Mail_client_Configuration#SMTP_over_SSL_port_465
+
There is a way to rewrite the incoming mail, but it's not a standard Zimbra feature. You can implement it as a configuration change in Postfix. Here's what you do:
  
<pre>
+
# Create a file in /opt/zimbra/conf named 'postfix_recipientmap'. 
$ openssl s_client -crlf -connect zcs723.EXAMPLE.com:465
+
#* The format is a single line that reads something like: @alias.domain.com @domain.com
 +
# Run 'postmap postfix_recipientmap' in the conf directory.
 +
# Run "postconf -e recipient_canonical_maps=hash:/opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_recipientmap".
 +
# Run 'postfix reload'.
  
CONNECTED(00000003)
+
This will cause postfix to map any incoming mail with a recipient of '@alias.domain.com' to '@domain.com'.  You will need to re-apply this postconf change after upgrades, though the postfix_recipientmap file should survive.

:: The ZCS legal intercept feature is used to obtain copies of email messages that are sent, received, or saved as drafts from targeted accounts and send these message to a designated “shadow” email address. Legal Intercept can be configured to send the complete content of the message or to send only the header information. When a targeted account sends, receives, or saves a draft message, an intercept message is automatically created to forward copies of the messages as attachments to the specified email address.

===Adding A New MTA Server===
+
See [[Ajcody-Notes-Archive-Discovery]] concerning A&D setup and options.
  
Basic instructions can be found here:
+
===Limiting Or Increasing Number Of Recipents / Messages===
* http://www.zimbra.com/docs/ne/latest/multi_server_install/toc.html
 
** See "Installing Zimbra MTA on a Server"

====Mailing Lists - Distribution Lists====
  
===Load Balancing For SMTP - Out Bound Mail===
+
Please see [[Ajcody-MailingLists-And-Mailman#Problems_Resolving_Virtual_Aliases_For_Members_Of_Large_Distribution_Lists]]
  
Currently, '''5.x code''', you have the following options:
+
====Policy Daemon====
  
* Configure zimbraMtaRelayHost and zimbraSmtpHostname [[Ajcody-Server-Topics#Using_Different_SMTP_Server_For_Webclient_.28ZWC.29.2C_Mobiles.2C_And_ZCO|zimbraSmtpHostname Details]] to:
+
If you want to restrict messages per hour,  you can look into Policy Daemon:
  
** An external load balancing device that will then split the traffic behind it
+
* http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Postfix_Policyd
** Setup a round-robin A record situation in your DNS for the external mta's you'll be using.
+
* http://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/How-to_for_cbpolicyd
 +
* http://www.policyd.org/features.html
  
In, '''GNR/6.x''', you are able to add multiple targets to the variables and we'll have some degree of "balancing" between them.

===User Alias Mapping And Mail Transport with Postfix & LDAP===
+
====Postfix====
  
See [[User_Alias_Mapping_and_Mail_Transport_with_Postfix_%26_LDAP]]
+
Also, there are some default postfix parameters set to control sending a message to x amount recipients.  The parameters you will need to look at are smtpd_recipient_limit & smtpd_recipient_overshoot_limit, these have a default value of 1000.
  
====Multiple LDAP Servers?====
+
Postfix defines these parameters as:
  
Completed RFE:
+
* smtpd_recipient_limit: The maximum number of recipients that the Postfix SMTP server accepts per message delivery request.
 +
* smtpd_recipient_overshoot_limit: The number of recipients that a remote SMTP client can send in excess of the limit specified with $smtpd_recipient_limit, before the Postfix SMTP server increments the per-session error count for each excess recipient.
  
* "mta should be able to take a list of LDAP servers to take advantage of replicas."
+
From the command line you can change the default values.

I'm wondering if policyd gives one the control everyone is looking for? I've not used it myself.
        server_host (default: localhost)
 
              The name of the host running the LDAP server,  e.g.

              Depending  on the LDAP client library you're using,

There's other additions [add-on's] one can get for policyd.
              it should be possible to specify  multiple  servers
 
              here,  with the library trying them in order should
 
              the first one fail. It should also be  possible  to
 
              give  each  server  in  the  list  a different port
 
              (overriding server_port below), by naming them like

====High Over View Steps Of What To Do====
  
===Domain Catchall===
+
* '''Step 1:''' Confirm your not an open relay and double check your postfix $mynetworks variable.
 +
** [[ZimbraMtaMyNetworks|ZimbraMtaMyNetworks And Postfix mynetworks]]
 +
** [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Open_Relay_Check|Open Relay Check]]
 +
* '''Step 2:''' Stop or put on-hold mail queue.
 +
** Put all messages into HOLD queue:
 +
*** Get a report of your current mailq [can be useful if you clean out the queue later but need to identify what external mail hosts are now denying you and who you'll need to contact about getting removed from their denial list]
 +
**** Example: /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/mailq > /tmp/zimbra_mailq_report.txt
 +
*** /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h ALL
 +
** Or put all messages match compromised account into HOLD queue:
 +
*** /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/mailq | grep user_compromised@domain | awk '{ print $1 }' | tr -d '!*' | /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h -
 +
**** Note, this is an example - you might with the grep grab more than the compromised account with the match.
 +
** See whole section - [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Managing_Postfix_Queue| Managing The Postfix Queue]]
 +
* '''Step 3:''' Check your mail log [On ZCS servers running MTA services] - /var/log/zimbra.log
 +
** [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Understanding_.2Fvar.2Flog.2Fzimbra.log_And_Postfix_Log_Events| Understanding the zimbra.log file and Postfix log events.]] , see subsection about queue ID and message ID also.
 +
** [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Who.27s_My_Spammer.3F| Who's My Spammer?]]
 +
* '''Step 4:''' Identify compromised account authenticating SMTP AUTH connection or block ip address where emails are coming from at firewall.
 +
** [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Who.27s_My_Spammer.3F| Who's My Spammer?]]
 +
** Continue to monitor compromised account and block ip addresses:
 +
*** tail -f /var/log/zimbra.log | grep username | grep sasl
 +
**** Jun  8 18:14:10 mail postfix/smtpd[15794]: 004358EEB16: client=unknown[XXXX.236.197.216], sasl_method=LOGIN, sasl_username=username@domain
 +
* '''Step 5:''' Disable the exploited email account, expire auth session, etc.
 +
** [[Ajcody-User-Management-Topics#Resetting_A_User.27s_Account_From_CLI| Resetting Or Expiring User Auth]]
 +
** '''Note''' - Restarting the mta services will be important once you reset the password/s or lock the account. It's required to ensure the active connections will be closed and any existing auth tokens no longer are valid. See:
 +
*** Force currently active SMTP authenticated sessions to be renegotiated when locking an account
 +
**** https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=80299
 +
* '''Step 6:''' Move the mail queue or delete the spam email
 +
** See whole section - [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Managing_Postfix_Queue| Managing The Postfix Queue]]
 +
* '''Step 7:''' Release Mail queue

=====Getting Some Initial Summary Data=====
  
Please see [[ManagingDomains#Domain_Masquerading]]

======zmdialyreport======
  
===Rewrite Recipient Address For Incoming Email===
+
First, some notable bug/RFE's in regards to the zmdailyreport:
  
There is a way to rewrite the incoming mail, but it's not a standard Zimbra feature. You can implement it as a configuration change in Postfix. Here's what you do:
+
* RFE - add explanations to Daily mail report / pflogsumm.pl output
 +
** https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=86630
 +
* Daily mail report shows incorrect output because pflogsumm.pl doubles the result
 +
** https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=84444
 +
* Descriptions of mta_counts numbers vs daily reports and other msg stats
 +
** https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=79632
  
# Create a file in /opt/zimbra/conf named 'postfix_recipientmap'. 
+
You can first get some summary data by doing the following:
#* The format is a single line that reads something like: @alias.domain.com @domain.com
 
# Run 'postmap postfix_recipientmap' in the conf directory.
 
# Run "postconf -e recipient_canonical_maps=hash:/opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_recipientmap".
 
# Run 'postfix reload'.
 
  
This will cause postfix to map any incoming mail with a recipient of '@alias.domain.com' to '@domain.com'.  You will need to re-apply this postconf change after upgrades, though the postfix_recipientmap file should survive.

top 50 Senders by message count
:: The ZCS legal intercept feature is used to obtain copies of email messages that are sent, received, or saved as drafts from targeted accounts and send these message to a designated “shadow” email address. Legal Intercept can be configured to send the complete content of the message or to send only the header information. When a targeted account sends, receives, or saves a draft message, an intercept message is automatically created to forward copies of the messages as attachments to the specified email address.

Fatal Errors: none
  
Postfix defines these parameters as:
+
Panics: none
  
* smtpd_recipient_limit: The maximum number of recipients that the Postfix SMTP server accepts per message delivery request.
+
Master daemon messages: none
* smtpd_recipient_overshoot_limit: The number of recipients that a remote SMTP client can send in excess of the limit specified with $smtpd_recipient_limit, before the Postfix SMTP server increments the per-session error count for each excess recipient.

Created RFE for us to include these in ZCS:

Besides using external mailing list software, [[Ajcody-MailingLists-And-Mailman#Mailman_-_Mailing_List_Manager|Mailman]] or [[Ajcody-MailingLists-And-Mailman#Sympa_-_Mailing_List_Manager|Sympa]], here's some other topical items in regards to restrictions.

They will install to /usr/local/bin/amavis-logwatch & postfix-logwatch . The config files are in /usr/local/etc/amavis-logwatch.conf & postfix-logwatch.conf . Here's an example of the output.

+
========  ==================================================
*** Get a report of your current mailq [can be useful if you clean out the queue later but need to identify what external mail hosts are now denying you and who you'll need to contact about getting removed from their denial list]
 
**** Example: /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/mailq > /tmp/zimbra_mailq_report.txt
 
*** /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h ALL
 
** Or put all messages match compromised account into HOLD queue:
 
*** /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/mailq | grep user_compromised@domain | awk '{ print $1 }' | tr -d '!*' | /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h -
 
**** Note, this is an example - you might with the grep grab more than the compromised account with the match.
 
** See whole section - [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Managing_Postfix_Queue| Managing The Postfix Queue]]
 
* '''Step 3:''' Check your mail log [On ZCS servers running MTA services] - /var/log/zimbra.log
 
** [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Understanding_.2Fvar.2Flog.2Fzimbra.log_And_Postfix_Log_Events| Understanding the zimbra.log file and Postfix log events.]] , see subsection about queue ID and message ID also.
 
** [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Who.27s_My_Spammer.3F| Who's My Spammer?]]

** [[Ajcody-MTA-Postfix-Topics#Who.27s_My_Spammer.3F| Who's My Spammer?]]
 
** Continue to monitor compromised account and block ip addresses:
 
*** tail -f /var/log/zimbra.log | grep username | grep sasl

* '''Step 5:''' Disable the exploited email account, expire auth session, etc.
 
** [[Ajcody-User-Management-Topics#Resetting_A_User.27s_Account_From_CLI| Resetting Or Expiring User Auth]]
 
** '''Note''' - Restarting the mta services will be important once you reset the password/s or lock the account. It's required to ensure the active connections will be closed and any existing auth tokens no longer are valid. See:
 
*** Force currently active SMTP authenticated sessions to be renegotiated when locking an account
 
**** https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=80299
 
* '''Step 6:''' Move the mail queue or delete the spam email

This will give some stats on your mail activity. Note, there are some issue with this script double reporting mail counts etc, but it's useful to identify the top 50 for activity.
+
One way to note accounts that are actively logging in vs. those that aren't, can help shrink the number of accounts you might want to investigate or monitor. [example below, I cut out a lot of the accounts]

A fast way to see who is doing a lot of authentications, which normally happens when a spammer has compromised an account with a weak password, is to do:
  
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
[zimbra@zcs806 ~]$ cat /opt/zimbra/zmstat/client_usage_report_2014-04-24.csv

======3rd Party Log Reports - postfix-logwatch and amavis-logwatch======

The full log event will look like this:
 +
<pre>

 +
</pre>
 +
 
 +
Against your older logs, you could:
  
Created RFE for us to include these in ZCS:
+
<pre>
 +
# zcat /var/log/zimbra.log* | sed -n 's/.*sasl_username=//p' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
 +
</pre>
  
* Include postfix-logwatch_and_amavis-logwatch
+
And you can look at the specific information for the user in question with:
** https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=89450
 
  
You can download them from http://logreporters.sourceforge.net/ . It's a fairly simply install, download and then extract - cd into extracted directory and as root type :
+
<pre>
 +
# grep -C2 "sasl_username=SPAMMER@domain.com" /var/log/zimbra.log
 +
</pre>
  
make install-standalone
+
Or if searching against the older logs:
  
They will install to /usr/local/bin/amavis-logwatch & postfix-logwatch . The config files are in /usr/local/etc/amavis-logwatch.conf & postfix-logwatch.conf . Here's an example of the output.
+
<pre>
 +
# zgrep -C2 "sasl_username=SPAMMER@domain.com" /var/log/zimbra.log*
 +
</pre>
  
/usr/local/bin/amavis-logwatch output example:
+
If you want to check on a specific message ID, do:
  
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
[root@zcs806 amavis-logwatch-1.51.02]# /usr/local/bin/amavis-logwatch /var/log/zimbra.log

======Second Recommendation - Unpredictable DL name or Non-routing Domain======
  
=====By Authentication Attempts=====
+
----
  
A fast way to see who is doing a lot of authentications, which normally happens when a spammer has compromised an account with a weak password, is to do:
+
Do not use predictable DL names. Instead of using everyone@company.com , use something like everyone-[random-string]@company.com .
  
<pre>
+
Another option is to use a non-routing domain - company.local - and setup your DL's there. You'll want to configure your main domain to be able to query the GAL of this domain.

      4 Cuser@domain.com
 
      5 Duser@domain.com
 
    36 SPAMMER@domain.com
 
</pre>
 
  
'''Note - This might take a long time, if so - try pruning it down'''
+
To see the existing setting:
  
Example:
+

======Third Recommendation - Using smtpd_sender_restrictions======
# zcat /var/log/zimbra.log* | sed -n 's/.*sasl_username=//p' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
 
</pre>
 
  
And you can look at the specific information for the user in question with:
+
----
  
<pre>
+
:::'''Work In Progress. I'm testing this now. Please don't attempt until this line is removed.'''
# grep -C2 "sasl_username=SPAMMER@domain.com" /var/log/zimbra.log

<pre>
+
This should work if your "clients" are using ZWC, ZCO, or ActiveSync mobile devices. If you are using IMAP/POP + STMP thick clients, you'll most likely have to enable smtp authentication [sasl] and use the reject_authenticated_sender_login_mismatch variable instead.
# zgrep -C2 "sasl_username=SPAMMER@domain.com" /var/log/zimbra.log*
 
</pre>
 
  
If you want to check on a specific message ID, do:
+
postconf -e smtpd_sender_restrictions=reject_sender_login_mismatch
 +
postfix reload
  
<pre>
+
This option is described as: 
grep 9DF7520804A /var/log/zimbra.log*
 
</pre>

====What's Your SPF Records Say, When Getting "does not designate 74.x.x.x as permitted sender Errors"====
 +
 
 +
This is most likely related to the SPF records for your domain and what the header content of the sending email states as it's Mail From. For example, this is from the header of an email that was "received":
  
 
<pre>
 
<pre>
* * * * * /opt/zimbra/find_spammer.sh
+
Received: from mail.XYZ-FAKE.com (mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com [74.X.X.244]) by mta01.ABC-FAKE.com with ESMTP id

=====By Connecting IP - Useful For Blocking IP At Firewall=====
+
To see what this check was done against, do the following below. I'll trim the output and adjust the information used to protect the innocent. Also, notice how a DNS "alias" might cause an issue here? :
  
See also the following:
+
<pre>

+
$ host 74.X.X.244
 +
244.X.X.74.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com.
  
To find the originating IP address of where the emails are coming from:
+
$ host mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com
 +
mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com has address 74.X.X.244
  
grep 'connect from' /var/log/zimbra.log | sed 's/.*connect from.*\[\(.[^]]*\)\]/\1/g' | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | head
+
$ host mail.XYZ-FAKE.com

mail.XYZ-FAKE.com is an alias for mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com.

=====Telnet Test To Confirm/Show Authentication Required For SMTP/Port 25=====
+
Using non-zimbra MTA's can cause some options in zimbra to not function anymore - since it no longer has zimbra's mta services available.
  
This is an example:
+
=====Zimbra Mail Forwarding Possibly Will Not Work - Turn Off User Option To Set MailForwarding=====
  
<pre>
+
Mail forwarding might no longer work depending on the configuration you setup regarding the use of your external mta's. When this happens you'll most likely want to disable the option for users to set a mail forwarding address in their preferences. This can be done via their COS or USER configuration.
esx2:~ ajcody$ telnet zcs723.EXAMPLE.com 25
 
  
Trying 10.137.27.32...
+
* In the admin console, goto the COS configuration the user/s are using and the "Features" tab. Uncheck the option "Allow the user to specify a forwarding address" under Mail Features. It is in the same location under a USERs configuration panel in the admin console.
Connected to zcs723.EXAMPLE.com.
+
 
Escape character is '^]'.
+
In the CLI, you will see these set as the defaults for the default COS. The admin gui option above only adjusts the zimbraFeatureMailForwardingEnabled variable :
220 zcs723.EXAMPLE.com ESMTP Postfix
+
 
helo zcs723.EXAMPLE.com  << I typed
+
$ zmprov gc default | grep zimbraFeatureMailForwarding

+
    zimbraFeatureMailForwardingEnabled: TRUE
</pre>
+
    zimbraFeatureMailForwardingInFiltersEnabled: TRUE
  
But note - if you do this from the ZCS server or a server that is within the ip range or has it's specific ip listed in the mynetworks, you will not get this authentication requirement.

====Confirming And Setting zimbraMtaRelayHost And zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled====
* [[CLI_zmtrainsa]]
+
 
* [[Improving_Anti-spam_system]]
+
First we'll set '''''zimbraMtaRelayHost''''' and '''''zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled''''' variables. These options are also shown in the admin console and can be configured there. These variable alone will not redirect ALL traffic to an external MTA first though. There's alao a variable called zimbraSmtpHostname that is in the global (zmprov gacf) and server (zmprov gs `hostname`) configs - addressed in the section below. It's defaulted value is 'localhost' - at least on a single ZCS configuration.

*** Note, from the readme:
 
**** "What follows is based on the SMTP client IP address, and therefore is subject to IP spoofing."
 
**** "What follows is based on the sender SMTP envelope address, and therefore is subject to SMTP sender spoofing."
 
  
Wiki articles that have been assigned to the anit-spam category:
+
In situations where you need/want all mail to be processed by, for example, an external non-Zimbra spam filter box you could set this variable to the spam filter servers hostname.
  
* [http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=Category:Anti-spam Category:Anti-spam]
+
Normally, when zimbraMtaRelayHost is set to a non-zimbra external MTA would disable DNS lookups. If you disable DNS Lookups (under the MTA tab of the admin console, or with zmprov), Zimbra will end up using (according to the postconf man page) the "gethostbyname() system library routine which normally also looks in /etc/hosts" (based on the entries on the "hosts" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf). If you do this but don't also specify an SMTP relay host (typically your ISP's SMTP server), which will take care of checking DNS, you will reverse your ability to send mail: suddenly you can send mail to other users on the Zimbra server, but you can't send to the internet (though you can still receive mail from the internet either way).
  
Down to the end-user:
+
Query Global - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :
  
* [[Cool_User_Spam_Filters]]
+
zmprov gacf zimbraMtaRelayHost
* [http://www.zimbra.com/community/end_user_guide_and_how_to.html End-User Guide And How-To]

+
zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraMtaRelayHost
** Note - this test is in regards to the From spoofing spammers sometimes do for DL's.
+
zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled
** Also, for the test - make an account/DL on your system for test1@[your domain] . Otherwise you'll just error about account not existing.

=====Protecting DL's From Spammers - Forging Mail From=====
+
zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRelayHost hostname-of-ext-server:PORT
 +
  ** ex : zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRelayHost primary.YYY.state.XX.us:25
 +
  ** At the end, 25 is the port number for smtp on the targeted system.
 +
  ** Adjust this number if you changed the smtp port.
 +
zmprov mcf zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled FALSE
  
======First Recommendation - As Given By Dev's From Critical Meeting Notes======
+
Modify Per Server - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :
  
----
+
zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMtaRelayHost hostname-of-ext-server:PORT
 
+

* Enabled SASL/SMTP Authentication
+
  ** At the end, 25 is the port number for smtp on the targeted system.  
** Ref: http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=SMTP_Auth_Problems
+
  ** Adjust this number if you changed the smtp port.
* Implement how-to as described in :
+
zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled FALSE
** Permitted Senders: [[RestrictPostfixRecipients]]
 
*** '''Note: You'll see on the above page a reference to the spoof hole.'''
 
**** '''''"This method can be spoofed by forging the MAIL FROM: header (so mail appears to originate from within the domain), so it isn't foolproof, but it works for basic needs."'''''
 
*** '''Note: You'll also modify the instructions as above with addition details provided below.'''
 
* Force authentication for local-domain senders:
 
** modify the main.cf to have the following:
 
*** smtpd_sender_restrictions = check_sender_access hash:/path/to/file
 
** Then for the /path/to/file that you used in the mail.cf for smtpd_sender_restrictions, you'll have a line like:
 
*** example.com            permit_sasl_authenticated, reject
 
  
======Second Recommendation - Unpredictable DL name or Non-routing Domain======
+
====Confirming And Setting zimbraSmtpHostname====
  
----
+
I'm assuming you already set, '''''zimbraMtaRelayHost''''' and '''''zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled''''' for your needs - see above section. The variable called zimbraSmtpHostname is in the global (zmprov gacf) and server (zmprov gs `hostname`) configs. It's default value is set to 'localhost' - at least on a single ZCS configuration.
  
Do not use predictable DL names. Instead of using everyone@company.com , use something like everyone-[random-string]@company.com .
+
In cases where you need/want all mail to be processed by, for example, an external non-Zimbra spam filter box you could set this variable to the spam filter boxes hostname.
  
Another option is to use a non-routing domain - company.local - and setup your DL's there. You'll want to configure your main domain to be able to query the GAL of this domain.
+

zmprov gd [domainname] zimbraGalLdapSearchBase
+

To change the variable for the domain:
+
zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraSmtpHostname
  
zmprov md [domainname] zimbraGalInternalSearchBase ROOT
+
Note - if you get errors about doing the query on your non-mailstores like, "ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke Connection refused, server: localhost) (cause: java.net.ConnectException Connection refused)" then you might need to adjust this variable. First query it, it's most likely set to localhost
  
======Third Recommendation - Using smtpd_sender_restrictions======
+
zmlocalconfig zimbra_zmprov_default_soap_server
  
----
+
If you had the error and it was set to localhost, modify it to be one of your mailstores.
  
:::'''Work In Progress. I'm testing this now. Please don't attempt until this line is removed.'''
+
zmlocalconfig -e zimbra_zmprov_default_soap_server=mailstore.example.com
  
Update: See the following:
+
No restart of anything is needed, the zmprov query should now work.

** http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2011281
 
  
This should work if your "clients" are using ZWC, ZCO, or ActiveSync mobile devices. If you are using IMAP/POP + STMP thick clients, you'll most likely have to enable smtp authentication [sasl] and use the reject_authenticated_sender_login_mismatch variable instead.
+
Modify Global - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :
  
  postconf -e smtpd_sender_restrictions=reject_sender_login_mismatch
+

====Some Other SMTP Sending Restrictions====
+
====External Email Clients Setting A SMTP Server====
  
=====Blocking Incoming From Domain And By User=====
+
The above variable, zimbraSmtpHostname, will not alter your third party email clients that are setting the smtp server to your ZCS mta's. Here are your options if you also need to have that traffic to go through another device [mta, spam filter, etc.] prior to local delivery [lmtp] to an internal address.
  
See the following:
+
* Set your clients to use the another devices ip address or hostname that you set for zimbraSmtpHostname.
  
* [[Domain_level_blocking_of_users]]
+
If you can't do the above, for whatever reason -- maybe security constraints or issues that might arise being a hosting provider, then see below.
* [[Improving_Anti-spam_system#Implementing_Whitelist.2FBlacklist]]
 
  
=====check_client_access=====
+
# You could investigate the alternation of postfix's content_filter option to place the external device/host [a barracuda for example] within that process. postfix.org has information on this - [http://www.postfix.org/FILTER_README.html Postfix After-Queue Content Filter]. This would be unsupported by Zimbra.
 +
# Contact Zimbra's Professional Services [PS] team for help.
 +
# Setup another server using a mta of your choice [postfix , sendmail] that the clients can use for the smtp server variable. This "new" mta would then simply relay to the device - a barracuda box for example. The barracuda would then do what it needs to and then forwards the messages to the appropriate servers for delivery. Your ZCS mta's in the case of local delivery that would of normally occurred over lmtp - userA@domainC.com sending to userB@domainC.com .
  
The smtpd_client_restrictions parameter restricts what clients this system accepts SMTP connections from. The default behavior is to allow SMTP connections from any client. This is discussed under [http://www.postfix.org/spam.html Spam Controls] on the Postfix site.

===Global Or System Wide Filters===

There is no "supported" solution for this - depending on the exact circumstances. It's a complex issue because each request for "global filters" tends to be very specific on either what's to be filter, what actions are to be taken, and so forth.

====Controlling Behavior For Messages Sent To Over Quota Mailbox - LMTP====
  
====Note Of Caution About Using External MTAs====
+
Moved to [[Controlling_Behavior_For_Messages_Sent_To_Over_Quota_Mailbox_-_LMTP]]

=====Zimbra Mail Forwarding Possibly Will Not Work - Turn Off User Option To Set MailForwarding=====
+
Moved to [[Controlling_Behavior_For_Messages_Sent_To_Over_Quota_Mailbox_-_SMTP]]
  
Mail forwarding might no longer work depending on the configuration you setup regarding the use of your external mta's. When this happens you'll most likely want to disable the option for users to set a mail forwarding address in their preferences. This can be done via their COS or USER configuration.
+
====Message Senders Receive About Mailbox Over Quota====
  
* In the admin console, goto the COS configuration the user/s are using and the "Features" tab. Uncheck the option "Allow the user to specify a forwarding address" under Mail Features. It is in the same location under a USERs configuration panel in the admin console.
+
Moved to [[Message_Senders_Receive_About_Mailbox_Over_Quota]]
  
In the CLI, you will see these set as the defaults for the default COS. The admin gui option above only adjusts the zimbraFeatureMailForwardingEnabled variable :

=====Qshape - Print Postfix queue domain and age distribution=====
  
====Confirming And Setting zimbraMtaRelayHost And zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled====
+
Moved to [[Managing_The_Postfix_Queues#Qshape_-_Print_Postfix_queue_domain_and_age_distribution]]
  
First we'll set '''''zimbraMtaRelayHost''''' and '''''zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled''''' variables. These options are also shown in the admin console and can be configured there. These variable alone will not redirect ALL traffic to an external MTA first though. There's alao a variable called zimbraSmtpHostname that is in the global (zmprov gacf) and server (zmprov gs `hostname`) configs - addressed in the section below. It's defaulted value is 'localhost' - at least on a single ZCS configuration.
+
====To View A Message In The Queue====
  
In situations where you need/want all mail to be processed by, for example, an external non-Zimbra spam filter box you could set this variable to the spam filter servers hostname.
+
Moved to [[Managing_The_Postfix_Queues#To_View_A_Message_In_The_Queue]]
  
Normally, when zimbraMtaRelayHost is set to a non-zimbra external MTA would disable DNS lookups. If you disable DNS Lookups (under the MTA tab of the admin console, or with zmprov), Zimbra will end up using (according to the postconf man page) the "gethostbyname() system library routine which normally also looks in /etc/hosts" (based on the entries on the "hosts" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf). If you do this but don't also specify an SMTP relay host (typically your ISP's SMTP server), which will take care of checking DNS, you will reverse your ability to send mail: suddenly you can send mail to other users on the Zimbra server, but you can't send to the internet (though you can still receive mail from the internet either way).

Note - if you get errors about doing the query on your non-mailstores like, "ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke Connection refused, server: localhost) (cause: java.net.ConnectException Connection refused)" then you might need to adjust this variable. First query it, it's most likely set to localhost

/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/bounce.cf.default
 
 
 
Note, please read the [http://www.postfix.org/bounce.5.html bounce MAN] page before you attempt to edit this file directly.
 
 
 
Also, I haven't been able to confirm the relationship of this above file with the postconf default output:
 
 
 
<pre>
 
[root@mail3 ~]# postconf | grep -i bounce
 
2bounce_notice_recipient = postmaster
 
backwards_bounce_logfile_compatibility = yes
 
bounce_notice_recipient = postmaster
 
bounce_queue_lifetime = 5d
 
bounce_service_name = bounce
 
bounce_size_limit = 50000
 
bounce_template_file =
 
disable_verp_bounces = no
 
double_bounce_sender = double-bounce
 
multi_recipient_bounce_reject_code = 550
 
soft_bounce = no
 
</pre>
 
 
 
To use a bounce.cf file, you'll want to add the file to variable and reload postfix via the zmmtactl script. It looks like zmlocalconfig doesn't currently handle this variable.
 
 
 
cp /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/bounce.cf.default /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/bounce.cf
 
postconf -e bounce_template_file="/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/bounce.cf"
 
zmmtactl reload
 
 
 
Note, this might get lost during upgrades so make a note to yourself about this change.

====Quota Not Showing In Admin Console - After ZCS Upgrade====
 
 
 
There might be some server attributes missing. To have the mail quota work properly, zimbraServiceInstalled mailbox must be true.
 
 
 
$zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraServiceInstalled
 
 
 
It must contain mailbox for the quota information to be available.
 
 
 
To set the zimbraServiceInstalled to true for "mailbox".
 
 
 
$zmprov ms `zmhostname` +zimbraServiceInstalled mailbox
 
 
 
I would think a zimbra restart would necessary as well for us to see the changes in the quota admin console view.

====To View A Message In The Queue====
 
 
 
Get the message id and use post cat:
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postcat -q EC753D0D00
 
 
 
or with more information, include the -v option:
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postcat -qv EC753D0D00
 
 
 
====To Flush Postfix Queue====
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postqueue -f
 
 
 
====To Requeue Messages In Postfix====
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -r ALL
 
 
 
More explanation from the postsuper man page:
 
 
 
<pre>
 
-r queue_id
 
              Requeue  the  message  with the named queue ID from
 
              the named mail queue(s) (default:  hold,  incoming,
 
              active  and  deferred).  To  requeue multiple mes-
 
              sages, specify multiple -r command-line options.
 
 
 
              Alternatively, if a queue_id of - is specified, the
 
              program reads queue IDs from standard input.
 
 
 
              Specify  "-r  ALL"  to  requeue  all messages. As a
 
              safety measure, the word ALL must be  specified  in
 
              upper case.
 
 
 
              A  requeued message is moved to the maildrop queue,
 
              from where  it  is  copied  by  the  pickup(8)  and
 
              cleanup(8)  daemons  to  a  new queue file. In many
 
              respects its handling differs from that  of  a  new
 
              local submission.
 
 
 
              o      The  message  is  not  subjected  to  the
 
                    smtpd_milters or non_smtpd_milters settings.
 
                    When  mail  has  passed  through an external
 
                    content filter, this would produce incorrect
 
                    results with Milter applications that depend
 
                    on original SMTP connection  state  informa-
 
                    tion.
 
 
 
              o      The  message  is  subjected  again  to  mail
 
                    address rewriting and substitution.  This is
 
                    useful  when rewriting rules or virtual map-
 
                    pings have changed.
 
 
 
                    The  address  rewriting  context  (local  or
 
                    remote)  is the same as when the message was
 
                    received.
 
 
 
              o      The message is subjected to  the  same  con-
 
                    tent_filter  settings  (if  any) as used for
 
                    new local mail submissions.  This is  useful
 
                    when content_filter settings have changed.
 
 
 
              Warning:  Postfix queue IDs are reused.  There is a
 
              very small possibility that  postsuper(1)  requeues
 
              the  wrong  message  file when it is executed while
 
              the Postfix mail system is  running,  but  no  harm
 
              should be done.
 
 
 
              This feature is available in Postfix 1.1 and later.
 
</pre>
 
 
 
====To Put Messages On Hold====
 
 
 
If there’s ‘*’ character next to queue ID , EC753D0D00* , it means that this message is in the active queue e.g. attempts to deliver the messages are made.
 
 
 
If there’s ‘!’ character next to queue ID , EC753D0D00! , it means that this message is put “on hold”.
 
 
 
To put a message on hold:
 
 
 
~# /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h EC753D0D00
 
 
 
To put on hold messages from user@domain.com:
 
 
~# /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postqueue -p | awk ‘BEGIN { RS = “” } { if ($7 == “user@domain.com” ) print $1 }’ | tr -d ‘!*’ | postsuper -h -
 
 
 
To put all messages on hold:
 
 
 
~# /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h ALL
 
postsuper: Placed on hold: 6 messages
 
 
 
====To Delete Messages From Queue====
 
 
 
=====Cautionary Note=====
 
 
 
::'''Warning, deleting messages from the queue can have a negative consequence of your users. You might need to account for the action and/or confirm your deletion was appropriate. Please try to save the postqueue -p information from the various messages prior to deleting them. This will at least you give you he information to  later justify your actions on why you delete msg#.'''
 
 
 
=====Relevant Sections Of Postsuper Man Page=====
 
 
 
<pre>
 
By  default,  postsuper(1)  performs  the operations requested with the -s and -p
 
command-line options on all Postfix queue directories - this includes the incoming,
 
active and deferred directories with mail files and the bounce, defer, trace and flush
 
directories with log files.
 
 
 
  -d queue_id Delete one message with the named queue ID from the named mail queue(s)
 
    (default: hold, incoming, active and deferred).
 
    If a queue_id of - is specified, the program reads queue IDs from standard input.
 
    For example, to delete all mail with exactly one recipient user@example.com:
 
 
 
              mailq | tail +2 | grep -v '^ *(' | awk  'BEGIN { RS = "" }
 
                  # $7=sender, $8=recipient1, $9=recipient2
 
                  { if ($8 == "user@example.com" && $9 == "")
 
                        print $1 }
 
              ' | tr -d '*!' | postsuper -d -
 
 
 
      Specify "-d ALL" to remove all messages; for example, specify "-d ALL deferred"
 
      to delete all mail in the deferred queue.  As a safety measure, the word ALL must
 
      be specified in upper case.
 
 
 
      Warning: Postfix queue IDs are reused.  There is a very small possibility that
 
      postsuper deletes the wrong message file when it is executed while the Postfix mail
 
      system is delivering mail.
 
 
 
      The scenario is as follows:
 
      1)  The Postfix queue manager deletes the message that postsuper(1) is asked to
 
        delete, because Postfix is finished with the message (it is delivered, or it is
 
        returned to the sender).
 
      2)  New mail arrives, and the new message is given the same queue ID as the message
 
        that postsuper(1) is supposed to delete.  The probability for reusing a deleted
 
        queue ID is about 1 in 2**15 (the number  of  different microsecond values that
 
        the system clock can distinguish within a second).
 
      3)  postsuper(1) deletes the new message, instead of the old message that it should
 
        have deleted.
 
 
 
  -h queue_id Put mail "on hold" so that no attempt is made to deliver it.  Move one
 
    message with the named queue ID from the named mail queue(s) (default: incoming,
 
    active and deferred) to the hold queue.
 
 
 
    If a queue_id of - is specified, the program reads queue IDs from standard input.
 
    Specify "-h ALL" to hold all messages; for example, specify "-h ALL deferred" to hold
 
    all mail in the deferred queue.  As a safety measure, the word ALL must be specified
 
    in upper case.
 
    Note: while mail is "on hold" it will not expire when its time in the queue exceeds
 
    the maximal_queue_lifetime or bounce_queue_lifetime setting. It becomes subject to
 
    expiration after it is released from "hold".
 
 
 
  -H queue_id Release mail that was put "on hold".  Move one message with the named queue
 
    ID from the named mail queue(s) (default: hold) to the deferred queue.
 
 
 
    If a queue_id of - is specified, the program reads queue IDs from standard input.
 
    Note: specify "postsuper -r" to release mail that was kept on hold for a significant
 
    fraction of $maximal_queue_lifetime or $bounce_queue_lifetime, or longer.
 
 
 
    Specify "-H ALL" to release all mail that is "on hold".  As a safety measure, the
 
    word ALL must be specified in upper case.
 
 
 
  -p Purge old temporary files that are left over after system or software crashes.
 
</pre>
 
 
 
=====To Delete Single Message From Queue=====
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -d [MSGID From postqueue -p]
 
 
 
=====To Delete ALL Messages From Queue=====
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -d ALL
 
 
 
Another way to do this:
 
 
 
mailq | awk '{print $1}' | postsuper -d -
 
 
 
======To Delete ALL Messages From The Deferred Queue======
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -d ALL deferred
 
 
 
======To Delete ALL Messages From The Hold Queue======
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -d ALL hold
 
 
 
=====To Delete Many Messages From Queue=====
 
 
 
To delete a large number of files one would use:
 
 
 
/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -d - < filename-with-queue-ids.txt
 
 
 
The filename, filename-with-queue-ids.txt example, would have a listing of id's like:

Adding A New MTA Server

Basic instructions can be found here:

Additional instructions needed beyond the above will follow as I hear about them.

Load Balancing For SMTP - Out Bound Mail

Currently, 5.x code, you have the following options:

    • An external load balancing device that will then split the traffic behind it
    • Setup a round-robin A record situation in your DNS for the external mta's you'll be using.

In, GNR/6.x, you are able to add multiple targets to the variables and we'll have some degree of "balancing" between them.

User Alias Mapping And Mail Transport with Postfix & LDAP

See User_Alias_Mapping_and_Mail_Transport_with_Postfix_&_LDAP

Multiple LDAP Servers?

Completed RFE:

  • "mta should be able to take a list of LDAP servers to take advantage of replicas."

From :

        server_host (default: localhost)
              The name of the host running the LDAP server,  e.g.

                  server_host = ldap.example.com

              Depending  on the LDAP client library you're using,
              it should be possible to specify  multiple  servers
              here,  with the library trying them in order should
              the first one fail. It should also be  possible  to
              give  each  server  in  the  list  a different port
              (overriding server_port below), by naming them like

                  server_host = ldap.example.com:1444

              With OpenLDAP, a (list of) LDAP URLs can be used to
              specify both the hostname(s) and the port(s):

                  server_host = ldap://ldap.example.com:1444
                              ldap://ldap2.example.com:1444

              All LDAP URLs accepted by the OpenLDAP library  are
              supported,  including  connections over UNIX domain
              sockets, and LDAP SSL (the last one  provided  that
              OpenLDAP was compiled with support for SSL):

                  server_host = ldapi://%2Fsome%2Fpath
                              ldaps://ldap.example.com:636

 **my note**
 This thread - http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/postfix/2004-09/1763.html
 give me the impression they made a mistake in modifying the help file on this
 and they dropped the use/need of the command:

  server_host = ldap://ldap.example.com:1444, ldap://ldap2.example.com:1444

Just a small note on where var shows up:

[root@mail3 conf]# pwd
/opt/zimbra/conf
[root@mail3 conf]# grep server_host *
amavisd.conf.in:$myhostname = '@@zimbra_server_hostname@@';  # must be a fully-qualified domain name!
ldap-scm.cf:server_host = ldap://mail3.zimbra.DOMAIN.com:389
ldap-transport.cf:server_host = ldap://mail3.zimbra.DOMAIN.com:389
ldap-vad.cf:server_host = ldap://mail3.zimbra.DOMAIN.com:389
ldap-vam.cf:server_host = ldap://mail3.zimbra.DOMAIN.com:389
ldap-vmd.cf:server_host = ldap://mail3.zimbra.DOMAIN.com:389
ldap-vmm.cf:server_host = ldap://mail3.zimbra.DOMAIN.com:389

Rewriting From Address For Outbound Email

Please see ManagingDomains#Domain_Masquerading

Rewrite Recipient Address For Incoming Email

There is a way to rewrite the incoming mail, but it's not a standard Zimbra feature. You can implement it as a configuration change in Postfix. Here's what you do:

  1. Create a file in /opt/zimbra/conf named 'postfix_recipientmap'.
    • The format is a single line that reads something like: @alias.domain.com @domain.com
  2. Run 'postmap postfix_recipientmap' in the conf directory.
  3. Run "postconf -e recipient_canonical_maps=hash:/opt/zimbra/conf/postfix_recipientmap".
  4. Run 'postfix reload'.

This will cause postfix to map any incoming mail with a recipient of '@alias.domain.com' to '@domain.com'. You will need to re-apply this postconf change after upgrades, though the postfix_recipientmap file should survive.

Automatic BCC

Option 1 - Via Postfix Customization

From the postfix website:

  • always_bcc = address
    • Deliver a copy of all mail to the specified address. In Postfix versions before 2.1, this feature is implemented by smtpd(8), qmqpd(8), or pickup(8).
  • sender_bcc_maps = type:table
    • Search the specified "type:table" lookup table with the envelope sender address for an automatic BCC address. This feature is available in Postfix 2.1 and later.
  • recipient_bcc_maps = type:table
    • Search the specified "type:table" lookup table with the envelope recipient address for an automatic BCC address. This feature is available in Postfix 2.1 and later.
  • Note: automatic BCC recipients are produced only for new mail. To avoid mailer loops, automatic BCC recipients are not generated for mail that Postfix forwards internally, nor for mail that Postfix generates itself.

Please see the following:

Option 2 - Via ZCS Legal Intercept

Generally used for Managing Legal Requests for Information

Description:

The ZCS legal intercept feature is used to obtain copies of email messages that are sent, received, or saved as drafts from targeted accounts and send these message to a designated “shadow” email address. Legal Intercept can be configured to send the complete content of the message or to send only the header information. When a targeted account sends, receives, or saves a draft message, an intercept message is automatically created to forward copies of the messages as attachments to the specified email address.

Policy Daemon

If you want to restrict messages per hour, you can look into Policy Daemon:

Beta release in ZCS 7 , see:

Postfix

Also, there are some default postfix parameters set to control sending a message to x amount recipients. The parameters you will need to look at are smtpd_recipient_limit & smtpd_recipient_overshoot_limit, these have a default value of 1000.

Postfix defines these parameters as:

  • smtpd_recipient_limit: The maximum number of recipients that the Postfix SMTP server accepts per message delivery request.
  • smtpd_recipient_overshoot_limit: The number of recipients that a remote SMTP client can send in excess of the limit specified with $smtpd_recipient_limit, before the Postfix SMTP server increments the per-session error count for each excess recipient.

From the command line you can change the default values.

su - zimbra
postconf -e smtpd_recipient_limit=<new value>
postconf -e smtpd_recipient_overshoot_limit=<new value>
postfix reload

Spam Control And Related Issues

High Over View Steps Of What To Do

  • Step 1: Confirm your not an open relay and double check your postfix $mynetworks variable.
  • Step 2: Stop or put on-hold mail queue.
    • Put all messages into HOLD queue:
      • Get a report of your current mailq [can be useful if you clean out the queue later but need to identify what external mail hosts are now denying you and who you'll need to contact about getting removed from their denial list]
        • Example: /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/mailq > /tmp/zimbra_mailq_report.txt
      • /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h ALL
    • Or put all messages match compromised account into HOLD queue:
      • /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/mailq | grep user_compromised@domain | awk '{ print $1 }' | tr -d '!*' | /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -h -
        • Note, this is an example - you might with the grep grab more than the compromised account with the match.
    • See whole section - Managing The Postfix Queue
  • Step 3: Check your mail log [On ZCS servers running MTA services] - /var/log/zimbra.log
  • Step 4: Identify compromised account authenticating SMTP AUTH connection or block ip address where emails are coming from at firewall.
    • Who's My Spammer?
    • Continue to monitor compromised account and block ip addresses:
      • tail -f /var/log/zimbra.log | grep username | grep sasl
        • Jun 8 18:14:10 mail postfix/smtpd[15794]: 004358EEB16: client=unknown[XXXX.236.197.216], sasl_method=LOGIN, sasl_username=username@domain
  • Step 5: Disable the exploited email account, expire auth session, etc.
  • Step 6: Move the mail queue or delete the spam email
  • Step 7: Release Mail queue

Note - First, look at the options each command has using the -h output. You might want to use --full when doing an investigation and also include a wildcard - /var/log/zimbra.lo* to take in all the log data. For example:

[zimbra@zcs806 ~]$ /usr/local/bin/postfix-logwatch --full /var/log/zimbra.lo*

zmaccts

One way to note accounts that are actively logging in vs. those that aren't, can help shrink the number of accounts you might want to investigate or monitor. [example below, I cut out a lot of the accounts]

By Authentication Attempts

A fast way to see who is doing a lot of authentications, which normally happens when a spammer has compromised an account with a weak password, is to do:

# cat /var/log/zimbra.log | sed -n 's/.*sasl_username=//p' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
      1 Auser@domain.com
      3 Buser@domain.com
      4 Cuser@domain.com
      5 Duser@domain.com
     36 SPAMMER@domain.com

Note - This might take a long time, if so - try pruning it down

Example:

# cat /var/log/zimbra.log | grep sasl_username > /tmp/zimbra_sasl_username.txt
# cat /tmp/zimbra_sasl_username.txt | sed -n 's/.*sasl_username=//p' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
      1 Auser@domain.com
      3 Buser@domain.com
      4 Cuser@domain.com
      5 Duser@domain.com
     36 SPAMMER@domain.com

The full log event will look like this:

zimbra1 postfix/smtpd[29431]: B28914D5978: client=xxxxx.server.com[w.x.y.z], sasl_method=LOGIN, sasl_username=user
zimbra1 postfix/cleanup[5522]: B28914D5978: message-id=<20090420154255.B28914D5978@zimbraserver.com>
zimbra1 postfix/qmgr[20690]: B28914D5978: from=<spam@spam.com>, size=6026, nrcpt=10 (queue active)
zimbra1 postfix/cleanup[3983]: 2BA56465D28: message-id=<20090420154255.B28914D5978@zimbraserver.com>

Against your older logs, you could:

# zcat /var/log/zimbra.log* | sed -n 's/.*sasl_username=//p' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

And you can look at the specific information for the user in question with:

# grep -C2 "sasl_username=SPAMMER@domain.com" /var/log/zimbra.log

Or if searching against the older logs:

# zgrep -C2 "sasl_username=SPAMMER@domain.com" /var/log/zimbra.log*

If you want to check on a specific message ID, do:

grep 9DF7520804A /var/log/zimbra.log*

For older message logs:

zgrep 9DF7520804A /var/log/zimbra.log*

To read/view the message in the queue:

/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postcat -q 9DF7520804A 

One would then normally lock/change password on the one account showing the most activity. Grep'ing the /var/log/zimbra.log with the username in question will also show the ip address being used, this can be blocked with your firewall.

To be alerted of a compromised account and have it lock automatically see below. Slightly modified from this reference : http://www.zimbra.com/forums/administrators/62613-identify-compromised-accounts.html#post278732 :


#!/bin/bash
# checks log file and gets a count of authentications sent per minute, per user
# and if the count exceeds the maxmails value the user's account is locked.

logfile="/var/log/zimbra.log"
maxmails="10"
mydomain="example.com"
support="<postmaster-userid>@$mydomain"
accounts="/tmp/active_accounts"

su zimbra -c "/opt/zimbra/bin/zmaccts" | grep "@" | grep active | awk '{print $1}' > $accounts

zgrep -i "auth ok" $logfile | sed 's/  / /g' | awk -F"[ :]" '{print $3":"$4,$11;}' | uniq -c | sort -n | \
while read line
do
    count=`echo ${line} | cut -d' ' -f 1`
    userid=`echo ${line} | cut -d' ' -f 3`
    timestamp=`echo ${line} | cut -d' ' -f 2`
    active=`grep "$userid@$mydomain" $accounts`

    if [ "$count" -gt "$maxmails" ] && [ "$active" == "$userid@$mydomain" ]; then
        echo "Maximum email rate exceeded, $userid@$mydomain will be locked"
        su zimbra -c "/opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov ma $userid@$mydomain zimbraAccountStatus locked"
        subject="$userid account locked due to excessive connections"
        # Email text/message
        message="/tmp/emailmessage.txt"
        echo "$userid account has been locked as there were $count connections made at"> $message
        echo "$timestamp.  Please have the user change their password, and check for phishing" >>$message
        echo "emails if possible." >>$message
        # send an email using /bin/mail
        /usr/bin/mail -s "$subject" "$support" < $message
        rm -f $message

        #update list of active accounts
        su zimbra -c "/opt/zimbra/bin/zmaccts" | grep "@" | grep active | awk '{print $1}' > $accounts
    fi
done

rm -f $accounts

Then run it as a cron job. The frequency will depend on the number of accounts you're managing.

By Connecting IP - Useful For Blocking IP At Firewall

See also the following:

To find the originating IP address of where the emails are coming from:

grep 'connect from' /var/log/zimbra.log | sed 's/.*connect from.*\[\(.[^]]*\)\]/\1/g' | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | head

To check your older logs [example output below]:

zgrep 'connect from' /var/log/zimbra.log* | sed 's/.*connect from.*\[\(.[^]]*\)\]/\1/g' | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | head

Telnet Test To Confirm/Show Authentication Required For SMTP/Port 25

This is an example:

esx2:~ ajcody$ telnet zcs723.EXAMPLE.com 25

Trying 10.137.27.32...
Connected to zcs723.EXAMPLE.com.
Escape character is '^]'.

Blocking MAIL FROM - smtpd_sender_restrictions - Default Is Empty

External References
Zimbra References And Bugs & RFE's
Protecting DL's From Spammers - Forging Mail From
First Recommendation - As Given By Dev's From Critical Meeting Notes

  • Enabled SASL/SMTP Authentication
  • Implement how-to as described in :
    • Permitted Senders: RestrictPostfixRecipients
      • Note: You'll see on the above page a reference to the spoof hole.
        • "This method can be spoofed by forging the MAIL FROM: header (so mail appears to originate from within the domain), so it isn't foolproof, but it works for basic needs."
      • Note: You'll also modify the instructions as above with addition details provided below.
  • Force authentication for local-domain senders:
    • modify the main.cf to have the following:
      • smtpd_sender_restrictions = check_sender_access hash:/path/to/file
    • Then for the /path/to/file that you used in the mail.cf for smtpd_sender_restrictions, you'll have a line like:
      • example.com permit_sasl_authenticated, reject
Second Recommendation - Unpredictable DL name or Non-routing Domain

Do not use predictable DL names. Instead of using everyone@company.com , use something like everyone-[random-string]@company.com .

Another option is to use a non-routing domain - company.local - and setup your DL's there. You'll want to configure your main domain to be able to query the GAL of this domain.

To see the existing setting:

zmprov gd [domainname] zimbraGalLdapSearchBase

To change the variable for the domain:

zmprov md [domainname] zimbraGalInternalSearchBase ROOT
Third Recommendation - Using smtpd_sender_restrictions

Work In Progress. I'm testing this now. Please don't attempt until this line is removed.

Update: See the following:

This should work if your "clients" are using ZWC, ZCO, or ActiveSync mobile devices. If you are using IMAP/POP + STMP thick clients, you'll most likely have to enable smtp authentication [sasl] and use the reject_authenticated_sender_login_mismatch variable instead.

postconf -e smtpd_sender_restrictions=reject_sender_login_mismatch
postfix reload

This option is described as:

reject_sender_login_mismatch
Reject the request when $smtpd_sender_login_maps specifies an owner for the MAIL FROM address, but the client is not (SASL) logged in as that MAIL FROM address owner; or when the client is (SASL) logged in, but the client login name doesn't own the MAIL FROM address according to $smtpd_sender_login_maps. Man page

Some Other SMTP Sending Restrictions

Blocking Incoming From Domain And By User

See the following:

check_client_access

The smtpd_client_restrictions parameter restricts what clients this system accepts SMTP connections from. The default behavior is to allow SMTP connections from any client. This is discussed under Spam Controls on the Postfix site.

Example:

check_client_access regexp:/etc/postfix/access_sender_client_server,

Example:

check_sender_access regexp:/etc/postfix/access_sender_toplevel
smtpd_reject_unlisted_sender

Details can be found on the mail.cf Postfix page.

Example:

smtpd_reject_unlisted_sender = yes

Possible Bug:

http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=24889

What's Your SPF Records Say, When Getting "does not designate 74.x.x.x as permitted sender Errors"

This is most likely related to the SPF records for your domain and what the header content of the sending email states as it's Mail From. For example, this is from the header of an email that was "received":

Received: from mail.XYZ-FAKE.com (mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com [74.X.X.244]) by mta01.ABC-FAKE.com with ESMTP id 
Cft0mO3fjlFGQjTA for <support@ABC-FAKE.com>; Tue, 21 Apr 2009 05:14:13 -0700 (PDT)
X-Barracuda-Envelope-From: testuser@XYZ-FAKE.com
Received-SPF: pass (mta01.ABC-FAKE.com: domain of testuser@XYZ-FAKE.com designates 74.X.X.244 as permitted sender) 
receiver=mta01.ABC-FAKE.com; client_ip=74.X.X.244; envelope-from=testuser@XYZ-FAKE.com;

To see what this check was done against, do the following below. I'll trim the output and adjust the information used to protect the innocent. Also, notice how a DNS "alias" might cause an issue here? :


$ host 74.X.X.244
244.X.X.74.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com.

$ host mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com
mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com has address 74.X.X.244

$ host mail.XYZ-FAKE.com
mail.XYZ-FAKE.com is an alias for mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com.
mailhost.XYZ-FAKE.com has address 74.X.X.244

$ dig XYZ-FAKE.com MX

;; QUESTION SECTION:

Note Of Caution About Using External MTAs

Using non-zimbra MTA's can cause some options in zimbra to not function anymore - since it no longer has zimbra's mta services available.

Zimbra Mail Forwarding Possibly Will Not Work - Turn Off User Option To Set MailForwarding

Mail forwarding might no longer work depending on the configuration you setup regarding the use of your external mta's. When this happens you'll most likely want to disable the option for users to set a mail forwarding address in their preferences. This can be done via their COS or USER configuration.

  • In the admin console, goto the COS configuration the user/s are using and the "Features" tab. Uncheck the option "Allow the user to specify a forwarding address" under Mail Features. It is in the same location under a USERs configuration panel in the admin console.

In the CLI, you will see these set as the defaults for the default COS. The admin gui option above only adjusts the zimbraFeatureMailForwardingEnabled variable :

$ zmprov gc default | grep zimbraFeatureMailForwarding
    zimbraFeatureMailForwardingEnabled: TRUE
    zimbraFeatureMailForwardingInFiltersEnabled: TRUE
$ zmprov ga ajcody@`zmhostname` | grep zimbraFeatureMailForwarding
    zimbraFeatureMailForwardingEnabled: TRUE
    zimbraFeatureMailForwardingInFiltersEnabled: TRUE

More details about them are in the /opt/zimbra/conf/attrs/zimbra-attrs.xml file.

<attr id="342" name="zimbraFeatureMailForwardingEnabled" type="boolean" cardinality="single" 
 optionalIn="account,cos" flags="accountInfo,accountInherited,domainAdminModifiable">
  <defaultCOSValue>TRUE</defaultCOSValue>
  <desc>enable end-user mail forwarding features</desc>
</attr>

<attr id="704" name="zimbraFeatureMailForwardingInFiltersEnabled" type="boolean" 
 cardinality="single" optionalIn="account,cos" flags="accountInfo,accountInherited,
 domainAdminModifiable" since="5.0.10">
  <defaultCOSValue>TRUE</defaultCOSValue>
  <desc>enable end-user mail forwarding defined in mail filters features</desc>
</attr>
Configure External MTA To Use LDAP Virtual Alias Maps

Here's the basic info in regards to how Zimbra's mta [postfix/etc] uses Zimbra's LDAP to get the forwarding information:

$ grep Forward conf/ldap-*
conf/ldap-vam.cf:result_attribute =  
zimbraMailDeliveryAddress,zimbraMailForwardingAddress,
zimbraPrefMailForwardingAddress,zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress
$ postconf |grep vam
virtual_alias_maps = proxy:ldap:/opt/zimbra/conf/ldap-vam.cf

See http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html#virtual_alias_maps for more information.

Confirming And Setting zimbraMtaRelayHost And zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled

First we'll set zimbraMtaRelayHost and zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled variables. These options are also shown in the admin console and can be configured there. These variable alone will not redirect ALL traffic to an external MTA first though. There's alao a variable called zimbraSmtpHostname that is in the global (zmprov gacf) and server (zmprov gs `hostname`) configs - addressed in the section below. It's defaulted value is 'localhost' - at least on a single ZCS configuration.

In situations where you need/want all mail to be processed by, for example, an external non-Zimbra spam filter box you could set this variable to the spam filter servers hostname.

Normally, when zimbraMtaRelayHost is set to a non-zimbra external MTA would disable DNS lookups. If you disable DNS Lookups (under the MTA tab of the admin console, or with zmprov), Zimbra will end up using (according to the postconf man page) the "gethostbyname() system library routine which normally also looks in /etc/hosts" (based on the entries on the "hosts" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf). If you do this but don't also specify an SMTP relay host (typically your ISP's SMTP server), which will take care of checking DNS, you will reverse your ability to send mail: suddenly you can send mail to other users on the Zimbra server, but you can't send to the internet (though you can still receive mail from the internet either way).

Query Global - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov gacf zimbraMtaRelayHost
zmprov gacf zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled

Query Per Server - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraMtaRelayHost
zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled

Note - if you get errors about doing the query on your non-mailstores like, "ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke Connection refused, server: localhost) (cause: java.net.ConnectException Connection refused)" then you might need to adjust this variable. First query it, it's most likely set to localhost

zmlocalconfig zimbra_zmprov_default_soap_server

If you had the error and it was set to localhost, modify it to be one of your mailstores.

zmlocalconfig -e zimbra_zmprov_default_soap_server=mailstore.example.com

No restart of anything is needed, the zmprov query should now work.

Modify Global - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRelayHost hostname-of-ext-server:PORT
 ** ex : zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRelayHost primary.YYY.state.XX.us:25
 ** At the end, 25 is the port number for smtp on the targeted system. 
 ** Adjust this number if you changed the smtp port.
zmprov mcf zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled FALSE

Modify Per Server - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMtaRelayHost hostname-of-ext-server:PORT
 ** ex : zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMtaRelayHost primary.YYY.state.XX.us:25
 ** At the end, 25 is the port number for smtp on the targeted system. 
 ** Adjust this number if you changed the smtp port.
zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled FALSE

Confirming And Setting zimbraSmtpHostname

I'm assuming you already set, zimbraMtaRelayHost and zimbraMtaDnsLookupsEnabled for your needs - see above section. The variable called zimbraSmtpHostname is in the global (zmprov gacf) and server (zmprov gs `hostname`) configs. It's default value is set to 'localhost' - at least on a single ZCS configuration.

In cases where you need/want all mail to be processed by, for example, an external non-Zimbra spam filter box you could set this variable to the spam filter boxes hostname.

Query Global - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov gacf zimbraSmtpHostname

Query Per Server - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov gs `zmhostname` zimbraSmtpHostname

Note - if you get errors about doing the query on your non-mailstores like, "ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke Connection refused, server: localhost) (cause: java.net.ConnectException Connection refused)" then you might need to adjust this variable. First query it, it's most likely set to localhost

zmlocalconfig zimbra_zmprov_default_soap_server

If you had the error and it was set to localhost, modify it to be one of your mailstores.

zmlocalconfig -e zimbra_zmprov_default_soap_server=mailstore.example.com

No restart of anything is needed, the zmprov query should now work.

Modify Global - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov mcf zimbraSmtpHostname hostname-of-ext-server
 ** ex : zmprov mcf zimbraSmtpHostname primary.YYY.state.XX.us

Modify Per Server - `zmhostname` would use the value returned, you can manual type out the servername as well :

zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraSmtpHostname hostname-of-ext-server
 ** ex : zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraSmtpHostname primary.YYY.state.XX.us

External Email Clients Setting A SMTP Server

The above variable, zimbraSmtpHostname, will not alter your third party email clients that are setting the smtp server to your ZCS mta's. Here are your options if you also need to have that traffic to go through another device [mta, spam filter, etc.] prior to local delivery [lmtp] to an internal address.

  • Set your clients to use the another devices ip address or hostname that you set for zimbraSmtpHostname.

If you can't do the above, for whatever reason -- maybe security constraints or issues that might arise being a hosting provider, then see below.

  1. You could investigate the alternation of postfix's content_filter option to place the external device/host [a barracuda for example] within that process. postfix.org has information on this - Postfix After-Queue Content Filter. This would be unsupported by Zimbra.
  2. Contact Zimbra's Professional Services [PS] team for help.
  3. Setup another server using a mta of your choice [postfix , sendmail] that the clients can use for the smtp server variable. This "new" mta would then simply relay to the device - a barracuda box for example. The barracuda would then do what it needs to and then forwards the messages to the appropriate servers for delivery. Your ZCS mta's in the case of local delivery that would of normally occurred over lmtp - userA@domainC.com sending to userB@domainC.com .

Global Or System Wide Filters

There is no "supported" solution for this - depending on the exact circumstances. It's a complex issue because each request for "global filters" tends to be very specific on either what's to be filter, what actions are to be taken, and so forth.

RFE's Related To Global Filters

Use The Legal Intercept Method

Depending on the details of your request, using the Legal Intercept options might be useful. You could take the results that goto the LI mailbox and then perform your admin global searches against your mailbox accounts to take the appropriate action.

See Legal_Intercept

Sieve Filter Set For Every Account

One could setup a forloop for all of your users and setup a sieve filter. Downside here is the rules are editable by the users and you would have to manage the rules for new accounts going forward.

See User_Migration#Migrating_Sieve_Filter_Rules for details.

Double Check The Current Anti-Spam Options

Make sure your request can't be solved by the current solutions described in articles.

Postfix , Amavis Customizations

I've seen some posts on the forums that customers found their own workarounds by customizing postfix and amavis. This will most likely result in an unsupported situation. Unfortunately, those forum posts don't also include details that I can share here. Hopefully I can find them going forward and I'll post them here.
