Enabling System E-Mail

Enabling the sendmail command

If you've noticed that after installing ZCS, system email (mail from root, cron jobs, etc) no longer functions, you may need to point your system binaries to the binaries included with ZCS. For RHEL and SuSE systems, the following process has been tested (by me at least) and has worked with no issues.

[root@zimbra5018 ~]# mv /usr/sbin/sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail.old [root@zimbra5018 ~]# ln -s /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail

NOTE: The first command mail fail if the sendmail package is not installed. This just means there is no sendmail binary to backup. Putting the link there should still enable system mail to begin flowing.

Enabling the mailq command

Similar to above, you may also want to view the mailq as users other than zimbra. You can do this as well:

[root@zimbra5018 ~]# mv /usr/sbin/mailq /usr/sbin/mailq .old [root@zcs1 ~]# ln -s /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/mailq /usr/sbin/mailq

NOTE: Again, the mv command may fail if the sendmail package is not installed. This is not a problem.
