    Default two zimbra internal email

    Hi,

    I have 1 zimbra internal email setup. It is running fine. My questions are can I have another zimbra internal email running on different box then this two internal zimbra are can see each other.

    My purpose for this are to archive all incoming and outgoing email of all users on zimbra to another zimbra server using postfix always_bcc.

    Thanks,

    thanks for the respond.

    How can I do it. Because I install already two internal zimbra. But this two zimbra server cannot see each other. When I email user@abc.com to user@xyz.com it always respond a bounce back. Can you give me some idea on this. thanks

    Have you set-up valid DNS A & MX records for the second server?

    You need one DNS server that has DNS records for both Zimbra servers otherwise they'll never see each other.

    Can you guide me on how setup one DNS server that has records for both zimbra servers.

    I setup zimbra using split dns. Maybe on first zimbra I can setup the DNS record for the second zimbra server.

    Thanks

    Just add the records for the second server to the DNS server on your first server and modify the resolv.con to point to that server.

    Can you give example on this. Because I try to add DNS record on my first server (to see the second server) then on second server I modify the resolv.conf to point on first server. But it still not working.

    Thanks

    Go to the Split DNS article and run the commands in the 'Verify ...' section' on both of your servers to confirm that your settings are correct or what's actually wrong with them.
