    Default [SOLVED] Relay access denied

    I am having an issue with sending emails in my setup.

    My server is setup, and everything works fine. All users can send and receive emails. However, I have another server that tries to relay messages through our zimbra server. Any messages that are sent by that other server to an external email address give the following message in

    Mar 6 11:11:31 zimbra postfix/smtpd[10268]: connect from[]
    Mar 6 11:11:31 zimbra postfix/smtpd[10268]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from[]: 554 5.7.1 <>: Relay access denied; from=<> to=<> proto=ESMTP helo=<>
    Mar 6 11:11:31 zimbra postfix/smtpd[10268]: disconnect from[]

    I have added the IP address to zimbraMtaMyNetworks, but that does not seem to make a difference.

    I am sure that I am missing something obvious, but I can't figure it out. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    OK, an update.

    I just went through all the steps described at ZimbraMtaMyNetworks - Zimbra :: Wiki and I found that the zimbra settings do not seem to be the same as the postfix settings:

    $ zmprov getServer `zmhostname` | grep zimbraMtaMyNetworks
    $ postconf mynetworks
    mynetworks =
    I have done a postfix reload but that does not change anything. I also tried setting zimbraMtaMyNetworks again through the command line, again no luck.

    How do I get "postfix" to see this updated "zimbra" variable?

    I have solved the issue.

    Apparently I needed to restart zimbra to get the new settings in.

    Would be nice if the setting would have automatically been populated into postfix, but it works now
