I'm currently evaluating ZCS 5.0 FOSS Ed. on CentOS 5.2 i386.
our company has a funny DNS/MX setup where the public MX record
points to another company that does all the spam filtering/etc for us.
any email sent to ourcompany.de is received by other-company.de,
which just forwards any non-spam messages to our internal MTA
which is DNAT'ed to a private subnet( 10.x.x.x ).
I'm curious if zimbra could work in that setup,
I've read the topics about split-dns and faking an internal MX record just for
zimbra and maybe other local machines would be no big deal.
would it be sufficient if we just set the "relayhost" to
or are there any other things we might need to consider
to get zimbra working for ourcompany.de and some other domains with similar MX records ?
p.s. this is a slightly sanitized public MX record for our company:
# dig ourcompany.de MX
; <<>> DiG 9.3.4-P1 <<>> ourcompany.de MX
