To see some of the basic warning:

$ egrep '(reject|warning|error|fatal|panic):' /var/log/zimbra.log

Log events follow this basic pattern:

     || Date & Time  || Hostname || Postfix component id || Message
      Dec 31 11:34:21  testserver    postfix/smtpd[1677]:   connect from mail.example.com[]

The process ID is in the square brackets.
