    Default Some setup assistance?

    Hey everyone,

    I had my exchange server just die for my home network, so of course I wasn't backing it up Anyhow, I looked into some alternate solutions, so I setup zimbra which wasn't too bad of an experience.

    My problem is how I had exchange setup - it was fairly easy to do in exchange, but I am somewhat lost with Zimbra and I have no idea what to search for. Here's the scenario:

    Mail server host was set as mail.mydomain.local and sits behind the firewall
    Public domain and email is hosted at Godaddy using mydomain.com.

    I set a public MX record for mydomain.com to point to my mail server, and opened the corresponding ports to the server.

    For outbound email, I redirect through their smtp server as I could never fully lock exchange down to stop allowing relays without blocking me from sending

    So outbound would forward to smtpout.secureserver.net with proper credentials.

    I think that is the jist of it. I have a freshly installed server, using mydomain.local as everything and I tested zimbra locally w/ thunderbird and it works internally. Can anyone advise me how to get to the outside world properly? Thanks in advance.

    -Mike

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for.

    Zimbra, by default, is not an open relay so you could send directly from your shiny new server. That would depend on whether you've got a reverse DNS, dynamic IP etc. any of those may cause you problems. If that's the case you can still relay through your ISPs mail server.
