    Default [SOLVED] External relay address

    Hi Guys,

    I am just trying to set up an external MTA relay address as all our mail goes through Messagelabs.

    On our 4.x Zimbra Server we had the relay set up successfully as:

    cluster8out.eu.messagelabs.com

    This now needs to be changed to:

    cluster11out.eu.messagelabs.com

    We upgraded from Zimbra 4 to 5 so the value above was carried across without issue at that time but when I now try to put this new value (cluster11out.eu.messagelabs.com) into the 'Relay for External Delivery box', on the new Zimbra 5 Server, I get, 'Value did not match Valid value'.
    I guess it's looking for an IP address instead of DNS name?

    I know I could just put the IP address in instead but should I be able to put the DNS address in?

    It's a minor thing I know but just though I'd ask!

    Thanks
    Russ

    Hmmm, was able to use a hostname just fine here. Try setting it via the command line
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmprov gs server.domain.com | grep zimbraMtaRelayHost
    just to check it first, and then to change it
    Code:
    zmprov ms server.domain.com zimbraMtaRelayHost external.isp.net:25

    Apologies also for the poor text spacing above!
