    Default Change Web-mail MTA by User

    Is there any way to change the web-mail MTA hostname on a user by user basis? Maybe I'm just imagining things, but I thought I remembered seeing a setting for that under the Accounts setup on Zimbra admin page, but I just looked and couldn't find it.

    Nope.
    That's gonna require some major changes on our end.

    You can have multiple domains, thus when they're sent, they appear to come from a different source. . .but the MTA is just delivery. There really wouldn't be a reason (I can think of) that would require such a thing.

    Some users don't even use the Zimbra MTA. I know that some service providers run multiple domains off of one or two MTAs.

    You can specify multiple MTAs in a cluster/array type of setup, but that isn't a per/user thing.

    Default What is the proper MTA Host Name?

    We are a simple single server Network license. Should the "Web Mail MTA Host Name" simply be localhost, or should it be our public url, or does it even matter?

    TIA

    We'd like to know the answer too for single server ZCS installs. "localhost" might simplify things re the Postfix > amavis > Postfix chain, but all of our single-server zcs installs have the fqdn set up the first time we go into the admin interface. The admin interface prompts us to set this to the default of localhost.

    Question We also like to know what is the proper MTA Host Name value?

    Our setup consist of a single Zimbra server with multiple domains with the default built-in Zimbra MTA.

    So in our case, we are not sure if it does matter to have the "Web mail MTA Hostname:" field to "localhost" or "zimbra.domain.com" ?
