    Default

    I don't know whether it is a MUST that smtp auth + tls should be applied together to make auth works. But in your previous post, you require me to do so. Anyway, please notice that it was another error if I use both smtp auth + tls. Thunderbird complaint that the zimbra server doesn't support EHLO command.

    I tried to
    c:\> telnet 202.175.x.x 25
    220 safp.gov.mo ESMTP Postfix
    ELHO host
    502 Error: command not implemented

    That means now I got 2 diff problem sending from Internet.
    Without TLS, it is Relay Access Denined
    With TLS, it is "502 Error: Command not Implemented".

    Both would not happened inside the subnet of the Zimbra Server.

    I feel compelled to point out that you entered ELHO, not EHLO.

    Default typo mistake

    Sorry, because I am trying those stuff with another machine. Some stuff are typed by me and not copy and paste. Therefore, typo mistake may happened.

    I just found another strange stuff.

    If I telnet INTERNAL_IP_of_zimbra 25

    Code:
    220 my_domin ESMTP Postfix
    EHLO host
    250-my_domain
    250-PIPELINING
    250-SIZE 10240000
    250-VRFY
    250-ETRN
    250-STARTTLS
    250 8BITMIME
    If I telnet INTERNET_IP_of zimbra 25

    Code:
    220 *******************
    EHLO host
    502 Error: command not implemented
    With this strange case, I also suspected that I have connected to the wrong host, but I did not because I checked at the /var/log/zimbra.log, there were connection trails:

    Code:
     Mar 16 11:24:55 safp postfix/smtpd[14342]: connect from unknown[202.175.xx.xx]
    Mar 16 11:25:06 safp postfix/smtpd[14446]: timeout after CONNECT from unknown[202.175.xx.xx]
    That means I connected correctly.

    My friend, if you're getting different banners on port 25, you're connecting to different postfix instances.

    ps auxww | grep postfix
    kill -9 everything listed
    su - zimbra
    postfix start

    Make sure you're not starting some system-default postfix on boot.

    Default Notes for using Zimbra with PIX Firewall

    Great, the keywords "anther instances" hit me. So I search through the Internet "Postfix + banner + asterisk" and found that there is SMTP proxy in my PIX firewall (I really don't know about that). I disable the "fixup protocol smtp 25" settings.

    Now the authentication dialog comes out. Without TLS, the SMTP connection is worked. There is still STARTTLS error when using TLS, I am trying to investigate it to see whether it is also related to my PIX firewall settings too.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Did you search the forum first? This has been covered many times. Do you have 'enable DNS lookup' set in the ADMIN UI?

    Oh, and if your zimbra server is up at the moment it's not possible to telnet to port 25. How are you checking that you can get to it?
