    Default [SOLVED] Local users relaying through Exim

    I'm having (it looks like) the same problem.
    pootle, your solution solved your issues? What happenned on upgrading Zimbra?

    I'm using Ubuntu 8.04LTS (x64) and it seems that my local users are using Exim instead of Postfix...

    Do you have Exim running on your ZCS server ? If so stop it and disable it from starting at boot
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol -v
    zmcontrol status

    Release 6.0.3_GA_1915.UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 FOSS edition.

    zimbra@mail:~$ zmcontrol status

    OK.
    I stopped Exim (disabled and uninstalled), stopped zimbra an started again.
    Now it seems Zimbra is receiving/sending correctly...but local users cannot send mail (a simple php mail function on the local apache server does not works).

    Check /var/log/zimbra.log to see why it is being rejected ... Is the Apache installation on a different server ? If so check whether you are allowing it to relay in the Admin GUI under Servers -> MTA -> MTA Trusted Networks

    The Apache server is on the same machine listening at port 80, while Zimbra is listening at port 8080.
    No error on zimbra log, but the Apache error log shows: sendmail not found.
    So, the system is looking for sendmail that (as requested by Zimbra setup) is not installed...

    Zimbra only requires that sendmail is not running (nor should any other MTA), it can be installed just not started at boot.

    I was having a similar issue as well, ubuntu 8.04 and ZCS 6.02... I've tried several kludges in order to get this working with varying success...

    I think Pootle's solution in this post is one of the better approaches.

    I've also found that I needed to add:
    Code:
    set sendmail=/opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/sendmail
    to /etc/mail.rc - without that entry in mail.rc I received:
    Code:
    postfix/postdrop[31961]: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory
    in my zimbra.log

    Maybe that helps... I'd also like to know the "proper" way to configure the local system to use zimbra.

    OK. Now sendmail is installed but not running (disables at boot). Zimbra boots right and sends and receive mails without problems. But we are at the same point (no mail for local users). No error messages at log files (zimbra log and mail log)
