    Default [SOLVED] Mail routing to internal domain not on Zimbra

    I have a zimbra server configured with domain foo.com. We have a subsidiary that has their own domain and exchange server with domain bar.com.

    Network wise, we have a private WAN connection to their office.

    I would like to route mail sent from foo.com(zimbra server) to bar.com(exchange server) through my private network instead of through the internet.

    I tried the command (found in the split domain wiki)
    zmprov md bar.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:10.x.x.x
    but it says that domain does not exist on the zimbra server.

    Anybody know how I can route this?

    I route internally by putting the internal IP of the server in the hosts file on the machine I want hitting the mail server internally. They look at the hosts file before they look at any DNS servers.

    I put it in the hosts file, but it is still sending messages via the internet. Do I need to restart something after changing the hosts file?

    The zimbra server has bind loaded (Split DNS wiki)

    In Linux, /etc/host.conf and /etc/nsswitch.conf determine the order in which names and IP addresses are resolved. The default in SuSE in to use the hosts file first. In Windows the hosts file is queried first.

    One way to test the IP being hit is to ping the url.

    OK, I added a record for the mail.bar.com in bind. It now resolves with no problems. Thanks!
