    Default Outgoing email question

    Hello,
    I am new to Zimbra and I am very interested in using this software.
    I have dedciated servers in hosting that I use but my testing server is at home,
    I have a business class cable connection and I am allowed to run servers. the only problem is my isp blocks outgoing port 25.

    Is there a way to setup Zimbra as a mail server/client but all outgoing email would go threw my isp's outgoing mail server instead of having my own outgoing mail server?

    I am a bit new to email servers but I am not new to linux/unix.

    Thank you very much for any tips/hints/solutions

    Yes, you set Zimbra to use your ISPs mail server as a smart host for relaying mail.

    Ok Thanks,

    I guess now I should get a fresh verion of ES 4.0 installed or FC4 and follow the docs

    another quick questions.
    If I tell Zimbra to relay threw my isp's email server can I tell Zimba to use Authentication so that my isp allows this relaying?

    Thanks and Kudos for the FAST reply!

    Yes.

    SMTP authentication did not return any results but I did other searches and found what I was looking for.

    all I need to do now is install a supported os and start testing.

    Thanks
