    Default External MTA Settings

    If I set both the "Web mail MTA Hostname" and "Relay MTA for external delivery" to an external ISP's SMTP server, and I send an email to another user on my Zimbra server, does this mean that all email goes :

    [mailbox] -- [external SMTP] -- [mailbox]

    or does it go :

    [mailbox] -- [zimbra MTA] -- [external SMTP] -- [zimbra MTA] -- [mailbox]

    I'm trying to avoind a user in the web mail interface having to wait for my ISP's mail server to accept the mail. Ideally I would like it to use option 2 above.

    Thanks for any help.

    It will be delivered internally as the domain is local to the server
