    Default Zimbra as Edge for exchange


    I would like to know how to setup zimbra to use it as an edge server to use its spam and antivirus solution. Here is how i would to use zimbra :


    So i would like zimbra to accept all mails coming from the internet to, does the av/spam test, and then send it to my internal mail server.

    Any thoughts?

    If all you want to use Zimbra for is antispam/virus, you should use something like mailscanner or ASSP. They use the same technologies, but are lightweight (compared to Zimbra) and specifically designed to deal with mailscanning

    Note that you don't need to create each user on Zimbra, simply installing Zimbra, applying AS/AV improvement and then run the above command to make Zimbra as front-end/AS-AV for Exchange. Don't forget to set your public MX records highest priority to Zimbra machine.
    Thanks Vavai :

    So the first command will catch all mail for my domain and the third one will transfert all mails for to my internal mail server right?
    But i don't get the second command ^^

    Thanks for your quick responve

    @Krishopper : i have the zimbra server so instead of leaving it on the side i woudl rather use it. but for the futur i'll investigate the ones you gave
