    Unhappy Mail that doesnt go where it should...

    Hello,

    I have a problem..for sure..or I would not be writing by now... So.. Im sending an email from an ubuntu machine to a user X@mydomain.com and when this mail is passing through zimbra, the user X is becoming the user Y. I have no alias for user X ! So Im wondering what is happening...

    In the following trace, you can see an email sent by logwatch for admin@mondomaine.com that is becoming suddently userY@mondomaine.com !! Then, like there is an alias on userY for userX, userX finally receive the email...

    But there was no alias on admin@mondomaine.com...so why did it become userY@mondomaine.com ???

    here is the trace:

    LHLO is the LMTP equivalent to EHLO in SMTP. Zimbra uses LMTP to deliver messages between Zimbra servers in your cluster. See: Local Mail Transfer Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    This user doesn't happen to have a forward setup in their account or a filter that would cause the message to forward, do they?

    Hi, thanks for the explanations about LHLO.

    The user admin@mondomaine.com has no alias. He has no mail filter in his mailbox. In his account, there is nothing configured to forward to anybody...

    I'm really wondering if the configuration that I see in the interface is not different then the real and actual configuration... can it be possible that something would be wrong between what I see in the GUI and what is under cover ? Is there any simple check I could do under command line mode ? Well, I guess I dont have access in command line mode....

    So I dont know where I should look.. and what I can check....

    Do you have access to the Zimbra admin console? There's is a blind forward option in the admin console that wouldn't be visible to the user.

    I have access to the admin console (port 7071). Where is this blind forward option you're talking about ?

    Account details -> Forwarding tab -> "Forwarding addresses hidden from the user" section.

    From the log that you posted mail being sent to the admin user is being forwarded to userY@domain.tld...

    I'm using zimbra in french.

    I guess "forwarding tab" is "redirection" tab in french. And in this place, there is nothing, everything is empty.
