I have an install of 5.0.2 open source running on top of a CentOS 5.x install. This setup is called smithers (big simpsons fan). My domain is smithers.lambesis.com. Works just fine, I can send emails to/from jpbuse at smithers.lambesis.com which is my test account.
Today I installed 5.0.2 open source on Ubuntu 6.0.6 LTS. This setup is called abe. My domain here is lambesis.com with a virtual of abe.lambesis.com. My live corporate email is lambesis.com and I'm trying to setup a zimbra server to eventually move our email to.
Both abe.lambesis.com and smithers.lambesis.com are public IPs and are accessible to all (for now).
My problem is when I send a test email to jpbuse at abe.lambesis.com from any other mail server, it gets returned with the following error:
(reason: 554 5.7.1
: Relay access denied)
I can't send a test to jpbuse at lambesis.com because that is actually my current live mail server (not zimbra) and obviously works.
I feel like I am missing something dead simple here. The only difference between the abe and smithers setups (aside from centos v ubuntu) is the domain config within Zimbra.
I removed the lambesis.com domain and kept the abe.lambesis.com domain. I also changed my users to be email@example.com and not @lambesis.com. Restarted the zimbra server and now things are working. I can send emails to jpbuse at abe.lambesis.com and they work.
So now my question is more for migrating. When I am ready to have zimbra on abe become the authoritative mail server for the lambesis.com domain, how can I change my users from firstname.lastname@example.org to be just email@example.com?
I can no longer log into the webmail interface as jpbuse. The error message I receive is 'An invalid request was made.' In addition, I'm unable to connect to the mail server now as jpbuse using Mail.app.
Geez, now the admin login page is just hanging.
