    Default split domain and sole use of mta relay

    I have a split domain architecture and have configured
    Zimbra as the Secondary System per the wiki page.
    I would like all messages from zimbra users to
    route via the legacy mta (to receive anti-malware service
    based on that customized gateway system and to
    obtain other facility services at the relay). Outgoing messages
    to addresses without zimbra accounts do go to the
    relay mta for external delivery as desired. But I also desire
    addresses with zimbra accounts to also route via the
    relay mta (which will then forward them back with the
    server name address format).

    The legacy mta has the mx record for the zimbra domain named on the
    zimbra server and in all other respects things are working as desired.
    I just want to add external routing for local zimbra address messages.

    I expected changing the zimbraMailCatchAllAddress and
    zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress states to "" might
    allow messages route out in this way, but messages remained
    locally delivered.

    I seek suggestions on how I might architect this.

    zimbra server dns
    holds zimbra domain
    The mx to points to

    If zimbra user sends to
    self or another zimbra account, say to self as,
    I want it to route via the mx lookup to,
    which will then route it back as a known zimbra user to Unfortunately, in my present
    configuration, it does local delivery of all existing accounts without
    using the relay mta.
    after following the split domain guidance I then tried
    zmprov md zimbraMailCatchAllAddress ""
    zmprov md zimbraMailCatchAllForwardingAddress ""
    but that didn't "uncatch" the locals.

    I thought I'd mention another post dealing with this issue (where I
    also posted a possible solution).
