    sorry about my ignorance i was not able this
    Right, so you have a setup with two servers... Did you configure the mailbox server to deliver all messages to the MTA? Probably not. Go to the Zimbra admin interface (https://<yourmailboxserver>:7071/), select the "Global configuration", enter the MTA tab and check the settings for the webmail MTA. This should point to your MTA and not to localhost or 127.0.0.1. It may be useful to also set the relay for external delivery to your MTA.

    Perhaps because sendmail on prod knows where your MTA for Zimbra lives.... (proper DNS setup, etc.). If you have a separate MTA for Zimbra, then use it. Do not trust any MTA/MDA software installed by the operating system, especially if you have not configured that MTA/MDA. Zimbra is a bundle of tightly connected pieces of software.

    As I said, I guess that your production MTA is properly configured in the DNS. Therefore sendmail running on your production mailbox server knows where to deliver the mail for your domain. Test/Acceptance systems are usually not setup for external access and thus not published in the DNS. Sendmail running on the other mailbox server can most likely not find the MTA, or just thinks it should try to deliver the mail locally.

    Use my earlier suggestion and modify the webmail MTA and MTA for outgoing mail in the Zimbra Admin interface.

    Still nothing in the mailbox? I guess you check your hostnames, or at least the names used in mail traffic. Otherwise, loosen the restrictions on checking messages, but that is not recommended.
