Guys, I have a very frustrating issue- I have the fqdn specified in this mta field and it's not actually using it.
There are a bunch of emails sitting in my deferred queue that when flushing or requeueing do not go out to my smarthost. I have used the following to try to force it b/c it wasn't taking my entry in the GUI:
sudo -u zimbra ./zmprov ms localhost zimbraMtaRelayHost server70.appriver.com:25
that shows up in my GUI just fine, restart zimbra with zmcontrol stop/start, send myself a test message and when i receive it and look at the internet headers it doesn't show that it went through any smart host. The reason stuff is sitting in my deferred queue is because the mail servers are having an issue with my PTR record-- normally not a problem b/c i send through an external MTA.
Very strange that in my audit.log I get this:
.168.168.201;ua=ZimbraWebClient - FF2.0 (Linux);] security - cmd=ModifyServer; name=zimbra.mail.hssc.com; zimbraMtaRelayHost=;
Why is the last parameter blank???
I have checked zmmtaconfig.log and see stuff like this:
Fri Jun 6 15:34:58 2008 Sleeping...Key lookup failed.
Fri Jun 6 15:35:10 2008 Skipping Configuration for server zimbra.mail.hssc.com No data returned.
Is there somewhere else I need to look to find out why it's not taking or what could be wrong? I try zmlocalconfig and don't see any reference to the external mta for relay.
Please help,, thanks
