    You need to be able to resolve the name of your server both internally and externally.

    You need to add a host record to the dns server for to point to your public IP and use port forwarding at the firewall to send port 25 traffic (and 443?) to the internal zimbra address. You will/may also need to set your internal DNS to point to the local IP address.

    This has been discussed a lot, so if you need more details, a search should yield good results.

    Thank you very for good advice. I also think likes that.
    I will make Zimbra as a secondary mail server.

    More information, I will search in this forum.
