    Default Using Zimbra with external SMTP to mask address

    Hello!

    I have a question about setting up Zimbra to be used as a relay for another smtp, to be used to mask the domain for the user. I've tried to search, but could not find a similar thread.

    The reason why I want to do this for my domain/company, is because we recently been merged with a larger company in the concern and we are all going to use Lotus Notes () in the future, but because Lotus doesn't have a web client at the moment, we have made a deal with the head company that we can use our own e-mail client until Lotus has release their client.

    But, we want to profile us as the other company through emails, meaning we would like to use their domain after @.

    How can this be set up?
    What has to be done from their side?
    What has to be done from our side?

    Example:

    I'm an employee with the address robin@ourcompany.com (a domain that WE manage) and the mother company has setup a address robin@mothercompany.com forwarding the email to robin@ourcompany.com.

    I login to Zimbra with robin@ourcompany.com but when I send e-mails the one who receives it will see that it comes from robin@mothercompany.com and when he tries to reply it get sent to robin@mothercompany.com (and the forwarded to robin@ourcompany.com).

    Please help!
    Thank you for a great email solution!

    I think I found it:
    Managing Domains - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Right? Masquerade?

    I've tried it and now it seems as it comes from @mothercompany.com.

    I also want to actually use their SMTP server, so the can't be considered being spam right?
    What do I have to do?
    Is it Relaying/Domain Forwarding I'm thinking of?
    Code:
    zmprov
    md ourcompany.com zimbraMailCatchAllAddress @ourcompany.com
    md ourcompany.com zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress @ourcompany.com 
    md ourcompany.com zimbraMailTransport smtp:mail.mothercompany.com
    Is that it or?

    Go to the Admin UI and set the relay there, if it needs authentication the go to the wiki and search for 'authentication'.
