    Default fetching mail from a main mail server


    I'm trying to install Zimbra as a local mail server that will fetch mail from the main server but be on the local LAN. My server needs SMTP authentication. I have gone through the articles on the wiki and administrator guide. My Mail domain settings look like this:

    # name
    dc: domain
    o: domain
    objectClass: dcObject
    objectClass: organization
    objectClass: zimbraDomain
    zimbraAdminConsoleCatchAllAddressEnabled: FALSE

    I authenticate with the local Active Directory server. However, when I try to send mail to an external system I get a sasl authentication failed error. I have created the conf/relay_password file with the user id and password.

    Which user/password are you talking about?

    The config you pasted above is for user authentication for logins. For Smtp Auth you need to have a seperate auth file and same needs to be specified in Have you modified those entries ? Refer to link Outgoing SMTP Authentication - Zimbra :: Wiki
