    Default How to limit distribution lists

    Hi,
    I have just installed 4.5.5 version and I am planning to migrate our users from domino to zimbra. But one major feature that we are using on domino is to limit users to send emails to specific user groups. (called dist. lists in zimbra)

    I coudn't find this feature while fooling in the admin menu. Is it possible to limit access to specific dist. lists ?

    Thanks,
    Guney Hanedan

    Postfix Recipient Restrictions
    This will show how you can modify postfix to restrict who can send to certain addresses in your domain such as distribution lists like all@mydomain.com
    http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?tit...tfixRecipients

    Setting the protected email address to that distribution list of course, and permitted senders is self explanatory

    Somewhere there's a bug to add the checkbox: "restrict permitted senders to those on the distribution list"
    (to add that between 'can recieve mail' and 'hide in GAL')

    ya know, a search might have returned:
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8648

    and for future reference-people searching THIS thread for the ability to keep email internal:
    "After implementing this, the sender.allowed.com user gets an error dialog in the web UI when trying to email an outside address:"

    Default gui

    Thanks a lot,

    It would be very nice if this ability could be managed from the web gui...

    Another option if you have a list server like sympa is to redirect a group address to a distribution list and use its builtin restriction features.

    There you go-

    Mail policies and access control for sending to distribution lists:
    http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9620

    And

    Distribution list restrictions:
    http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=7104

    So I tried to go:
    "Resolve bug, mark it as a duplicate of ___" (for either one)
    and I just get a permissions error (yes i'm signed in)

    on both bugs I get:
    "You tried to change the Status field from ASSIGNED to RESOLVED, but only the owner or submitter of the bug, or a sufficiently empowered user, may change that field"

    If you have an interest in that feature you can add your comments to the bug reports and vote on them, if you're a NE trial user then raise a case with support and mention the Domino conversion (and still vote on them) and ask for the details to be added to the bug report.
